It’s about time to talk about making pictures in snow and cold. This photograph shows the main street of the bustling small New Hampshire town of Peterborough, with about 6,000 residents. It was made just at the end of a two-foot February snowstorm. Not much bustle! Not a person to be seen the entire length of the main street, and no traffic either. It was quite cold (for this region, anyway), with a little snow still in the air, and no day to be slipping and sliding around carrying a large and heavy bag full of cold camera equipment – and having to open it for lens changes or anything else with cold fingers in gloves. So that day I used a simpler method.
