A Winter’s Tale

A Winter's Tale

Plainsboro, New Jersey

A view of a winter landscape through the branches of a fir tree weighed down by the snow. All was quiet and untouched as the snowstorm settled down.



  1. This is a very lovely photo – the branches look so heavy with thick snow and as far as composition goes, the image is framed very well. If there was a house in the center, this would look like a quintessential “Season’s Greetings” card. The fact that it’s so familiar in that way and yet unfamiliar because of the open, white emptiness kind of adds a feeling of nostalgia to this photo – as in, your memory is telling you it should be a certain way despite the fact that for everyone besides yourself, this is a novel photo. In a way, it reminds me of one of the NY Times photo essays that I also thought used empty space very well: http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2013/12/08/magazine/08greatplains_ss.html?ref=magazine#1
    Well done!

  2. Looking at this picture, I can’t help but think of Narnia. Is that weird? Maybe it’s the way the view under the tree branch kind of looks like a portal, as if you could step through it and be in a completely different place. If you said you did cinematography work for fantasy movies, I’d be inclined to believe you.

  3. This Winter has really been getting on my nerves as of lately. After looking at this picture it almost feels worthwhile to suffer through the countless snowstorms if I get the chance to see something like this. The background almost looks like a painting.
