Here are a few of my best photographs from 2009. It was a relatively slow photography year, but I think I got some good shots. More to come…

The DC Snowstorm

1 01 2010

Two weeks ago, Washington DC got dumped on.  And this dumping had nothing to do with the politics of the left or the politics of the right. It was an equal opportunity event. Washington, DC and the surrounding coast received a December record snowfall leaving at least 18 inches of snow in most areas. The snow definitely slowed down travel.

After the roads cleared, but before the snowcover fully melted, I made it to one of my favorite locations to shoot in DC. I visited the Capitol Columns at the National Arboretum. Because of the hours of the arboretum, it’s difficult to capture the columns with any sunsets or sunrises, but I was able to visit during the late afternoon. I captured two new shots of the columns dressed in their winter snow.
