Sometimes it’s hard to motivate out of the house when it looks like a blizzard is happening and it’s warm and cozy inside, but the pull to see the snow is pretty strong. I couldn’t coax the kids to come out with me when we had a snow day Tuesday, but honestly, it’s something I like to do alone anyway. I walked for over an hour in the storm, which at that point wasn’t quite the blizzard that was predicted, and only saw a handful of people out shoveling their sidewalks. Rare to see the neighborhood so empty like that. Standing in the middle of Prospect Park during a snow storm is one of my favorite sensory experiences. It’s not always my intention to go there, but I often find myself pulled towards the park during snowfall. Why? Wide open spaces and the quiet, I guess. To see the sky blur with the horizon in a nearly seamless blanket of white. And to watch the dogs frolic so happily in that snow. It never fails to delight.

    Absolutely stunning images Jenna. So beautiful, breathtaking, and peaceful. Glad you had the chance to breathe it all in…
    Where I live, there’s only fog in the mornings, which is actually lovely, and then lots of sunshine. Would love to experience the snow like that some winter. Have a wonderful and productive weekend.

    when we lived in NY I used to love watching the snow fall. So hypnotic. Then we’d venture out and just trudge through it (esp if it was a heavy fall). I loved how the snow pack would muffle and dampen all the sound so that it was eerily quiet and soft. It’s understandable why you enjoy going out in the snow and observing.

    I usually don’t like snow very much, but your pictures taught me to (from a distance). I agree with Joo and Erin, these deserve to be framed and sold so more people can enjoy them. Thank you for sharing them.

    I love the curve of the dogs tails – oh, to run free in NYC.
