I miss the snow this year,
my second winter on Cape Cod.
I miss the drama, the storm,
the pure Immersion in cold and wind
snowflakes on my face.
The silence and softness surround me
In love with capturing God in a blizzard.

I love the softness of this image, the sensuousness of the drifts, the stillness.
It feels like a dream – which it was.
It gives me great pleasure to explore, experience, feel –
To shoot in situations that aren’t traditionally thought of as ideal times.
The dark, the middle of a blizzard, the rain.
Never being sure of the outcome, trusting the Connection is true
This, for me, an essential of being passionate and alive.
