There has been an unusually high snowfall this year in New York City. Today was the third day in a row we awoke to near-blizzard conditions as the City received over 19 inches of snow the previous night. Its a warm, wet snow which sticks to everything and is quite pretty early in the day, but very quickly turns into a brown, slushy mess as the commuters take their toll.
I went for a walk through Madison Square Park just as the sun came out and before the snow started to melt. The park was overrun with photographers, dogs, and out-of-school kids. A few pictures below:
Looking north toward 26th street over some very snowy trees in the park.
This dog wanted nothing more than having snow thrown in his face... over and over again.
Looking south through the snowy trees toward the Flatiron Building on 23rd street.
The first blue sky in days appears over 26th street.
Looking north toward the Empire State Building.
The scene in this last photo was too backlit so I tried to do an HDR and recombine the images to balance the exposure. It came out rather strange.
