Old Oak in the Blizzard

Share Button

© Copyright Paul Mozell On the day of the wonderful Blizzard of January 12, 2011 I dug out my all wheel drive car, and hit the partially plowed and nearly empty streets at 6:30 AM. My assignment was to capture the essence of the storm and upload files by 8:00 AM. After photographing a few adventuresome rail commuters at the MBTA station in town, I went immediately to the town green, where I had a strong sense that something photographically interesting would appear. Silly me, I left my snowshoes at home. There were great 3 foot drifts in the windswept park landscape. The wet, sticky snow melted the moment in hit my camera and tripod, and I constantly wiped away the water droplets with a super-absorbant swim towel. I set the exposure compensation on my weather-resistant Nikon D300 for +1.7 stops, knowing that the camera’s meter wanted to underexpose the images in the bright white scene. That brought the histogram over to the right side, just missing being clipped. Some of the exposures appeared as if they had been taken in a driving rain, because I could not keep up with the wiping. But this snap was just perfect, the melting flakes diffused the light in what I deem, were just the right places. You are welcome to agree, or disagree! I also photographed snow-covered playground equipment, snowy earth moving equipment at rest, a great family sledding, and utility workers repairing some downed power lines. What a day.
