Swirling Nor’easter Snow

Nature has welcomed in March with a wonderful Nor’easter which has made life interesting all along the East Coast, and the Delaware Valley is feeling it’s power. Things around here are not too bad, but I just checked the news and it looks like we’re making out pretty well in comparison to much of the region. Falling trees have suspended some rail service, and one even fell on a bus on a local expressway. Flooding has been minimal so far, but that might change. We get Nor’easters around here not infrequently, but this one seems to be rather wrathful.

It did afford me the opportunity to try my hand as capturing some of the swirling snow on my G7. The light was already low when I found a moment to pull out my camera, so I had to up the ISO to levels I don’t often use on this camera in order to keep my shutter speed fast and the depth of field wide, but I was pleased with the results. I converted the image to black and white in order to accentuate the snow. None of the white specs in the photo are noise, that’s all swirling snow. Pretty cool.
