The Beast from the East

After all the hype, the beast from the east finally hit — and boy did she deliver! The entire nation came to a standstill, with schools and businesses closing across the isles. 

I've no doubt that most folks probably stayed indoors. Me on the other hand... I wanted a photo; so I braved the elements and headed for my local park. When I arrived things were relatively peaceful and undramatic but within a few minutes it began to blizzard — and all of a sudden like it felt like I had been transported to Siberia! 

It can be very challenging to photograph conditions like this since you'll spend most of your time wiping moisture off your lens. If you persevere, however, you just might capture something special!
