Snow falling against a forest at Syracuse, NY.

Lake effect snow falls against a forest back drop.

 Earlier this month the area got some lake effect snow, off of Lake Ontario to the north of us. The snow came down fast, and by the time it stopped there was four to five inches of snow on the ground. This photograph was taken early, during the first wave of snow fall, and was the view from my kitchen window.

When the first wave of snow fall slowed, I headed out to catch Amtrak's Lake Shore Limited in the snow. By the time I got to the location where I photographed it, the snow had picked up again.

  1. We don't get that much snow all winter these days! Neat image. Kind of an abstract feel to it.

    1. Thank you, Shelly. We've had snow on the ground now for almost two weeks straight.
