Winter Storm Thor; Blog Update

First off, please excuse the new bare-bones blog theme.  I’m currently shopping around for a premium theme to make the most out of my blog in 2015, but I want to make sure I’ve found the perfect one.  In the mean time, I needed some sort of change.

Winter was something I definitely did not have to deal with last year when I lived in Los Angeles.  This was not the case for 2014-2015.  I would even go out on a limb to declare it the worst winter I’ve experienced since 2006-2007 (because I didn’t live here last winter).  Winter makes it hard for me to do anything.  Apparently I become some sort of hibernating animal, and I only emerge when completely necessary.  Needless to say, I stepped away from the camera for two months because I stepped away from my life (I believe this is called Seasonal Affective Disorder).  I’m really looking forward to dealing with that next year, since it’s not something I can ever truly do again.

March actually came in “like a lion” in the shape of Winter Storm Thor, which decided to remind the East Coast that although it was the month of March, it was still in fact, Winter.  This season was filled with false predictions of large snowfall totals for Philadelphia (sorry, Boston), so I did not expect I would be shoveling my car out from a foot of snow on March 5; but that is what I did.  And then I bit the bullet and went outside with my camera:

I find snow terribly unappealing.  I don’t think it’s pretty, it makes everything harder to do, and I detest the cold.  I also don’t particularly find that shooting landscapes is my strongest suit.  That said, there was something about the bright sunlight the day after the storm that was gorgeous.  It was Springtime sunlight, and it filled me with hope.  Spring was literally around the corner.  I took all of these photos out of my car window in and around Wayne, PA because I’m a very safe driver.
