Before the Storm
|Camera:||Canon EOS 5D|
If you live in New England, you know this sky. It means a snow storm is coming.
As I went out around mid morning to do a few last minute errands and to do my daily shoot, I wanted to capture that “before the storm” sky in some way that captured both the physical sky itself as well as the smell of steel in the air that also is a sign that significant snow is imminent.
I passed by the town cemetery and said well, here we have our steel, our sky, as well as the ominous feeling that is attached to the first of the season’s storm warnings as well.
I drove in and while I was taking the photo, a school bus went by filled with students being released early from school.
Click. That’s just about right for there is always that in a storm in New England: No School.
You never forget what a great feeling that is no matter how many inches fall nor how many years have passed since you last rode the bus home.
