The snow blizzard Nemo was a blessing in disguise. I have been waiting a whole year for this opportunity to see Central Park in its glory, when it’s fully covered in thick soft white snow. The appearance could easily transform the city to rival any town in Scandinavia or the north pole. I couldn’t wait to be one of the first to set foot in the park right after the down pour of snow, when it’ still fresh and powdery. Alas! A romantic winter wonderland in New York City!
I was up and fully charged by 4am only to find other photographers out there with the same idea in mind. I felt like I was part of a community. We helped each other to find good spots and gave good tips on which part of the park to check out for the best scenery. There’s nothing like shooting in the virgin snow. The idea was to get as many pictures as possible before the general masses woke up to sledge through the snow with their dogs, cats, kids and grandmothers. The unspoilt thick snow dust covered the park beautifully. It was a sight to behold. I was in my element. This was Disney World for me as a photographer.
New York missed out on any sight of snow last year, so we had blizzard Nemo to make up for it. The snow was abundant.
Here are a few of my favorites from my photography work on Central Park. It was hard narrowing them down to these selections. If you see any image you fancy, just click on it to preview the enlarged version. As usual darling, all rights reserved. Enjoy 🙂
