Bethesda Terrace during a snowstorm....I had it on my bucket list for many years, and this year, I finally got to see it. This was taken at about 9am after it had been snowing for 5 hours.. You would think I had the place to myself....but nothing stops New Yorkers. Several seriously committed joggers came through here as I was setting up....and countless folks walking their dogs or just strolling through the park. I pretty much froze my fingers off waiting.....but totally worth it
I absolutely love looking at this picture. It was an early morning in the dead of winter and a huge blizzard had covered New York City.....and I was lucky enought to be there to see it. Just after dawn, I headed to this location....the mall in Central Park. I had alwys wondered what it would look like covered in snow. It was utterly surreal and peaceful ....and , um, cold. Really cold. My hands and feet were pretty frozen. Still, I would do it again in a heartbeat.....but with better gloves.
i remember this day well. The weather went from cold and wet to colder and wetter, then back to cold and wet again. Nicklas, being from Sweden, was pretty much unfazed by any of it. But the Jersey boy wasn’t quite as adventurous……and I spent a lot of time slapping my hands against the car door to try and get some feeling back. But, even with the rough weather, its easy to see why Nat Geo picks this place as a Top Travel Destination every year.
If I could convince you to visit one place, it would be Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. I was lucky to be here just after a snowfall and see this amazing sunrise. There are all sort of winding paths that lead you way down into the canyon and the photo opportunities are endless. And when you are done here, go to Zion, then Arches.......actually just pack up and move to Utah.
