Photo of the day: SNOW GLOW


SNOW GLOW: During my hiatus from blogging and Facebook, the blizzard of February 10, 2013 hit Sunnyside Queens, New York and I got the photograph I had been wanting to get for a long time. The street my mother lives on, 45th Street, near Queens Blvd. has a great view of the passing #7 train. When it rains or snows it always has an atmosphere of eerie yet romantic, old world yet in today’s times and a great misty light play. I grabbed my camera and stood in the snow for two hours till midnight photographing the storm and the light plays. This is one of my favorites moments.

    Nice foto, Hans. I like to stay up late and take pix in the snow too. Moonlit nights, you’ll find me peeking through the trees and snapping pix. Wish you could see some of them. I think you’d like them.
