Before The Storm

Having grown up on the East Coast, I’m quite familiar with Nor’easters, they are a fact of life. Normally we’ll get one of these types of storms every year or so, and every few years we’ll get a doozy which feels almost like a low-level hurricane event. Last week we had one of these doozy storms hit us on Friday, causing wide-spread damage and taking several lives. Tonight we’re set to get a second doozy storm in less than a week. Isn’t climate change fun?

Since it’s going to be a day or so before I again see the Sun, I decided to stop down by the river and capture some photos before the cloud cover spread its way full across the region. The light was interesting, which I accentuated with some tricks on the HSL sliders in Lightroom, and I like how the empty lot in the foreground of the composition brings a bit of unsettled discomfort. This is how many people are feeling in the region right now.

  1. The clouds gathering is interesting. I was hoping you would be out capturing the sights. Thank you for sharing
