Snow storms often sweep through New England during winter, leaving the landscape coated in the fluffy white stuff. Less often, however, the atmosphere and timing will work in such a way that leaves the landscape monochromatic while the sky displays brilliantly blue.
Generally the the clouds cover the sky leaving scenes bleak, or the sun comes out and melts all the snow covering the trees. On this lucky Saturday, we were treated to this less common scenery in Rochester, Massachusetts. It remained cold enough for the snow to lounge on the branches throughout the day, but the clouds broke enough to reveal some beautiful blue above.
All the shots here were shot in color and not adjusted to accent the sky (except for a little clarity filter and contrast). It’s pretty amazing how the landscape appears in almost black and white.
