Winter Trees IV

The idea for a series of folios celebrating winter trees had been with me for a long, long time — since my earliest days in photography. At long last, in 2008, the series commenced. The intention was to produce one folio each year. This year, Boreas (the Greek God of Winter) must have been feeling particularly spry. This is the first of three folios photographed and produced from a singular and spectacular morning storm.

All five images in this folio were photographed in a single session the morning of February 23, 2011. I awoke at 5am to a dark, heavy rain. An hour later, the cold had descended. Snowflakes started piling up more rapidly than I'd ever seen in my life. For a fellow born in Wyoming, this is saying something. Another hour and dawn arrived. Whatever plans I had for the day were postponed and in just a few minutes I was out in the falling snow, camera in hand.
