Winter Storm Jonas Hits New York! Blizzard of 2016 with Sony A7ii

Life

This past weekend New York saw Winter Storm Jonas, or the Blizzard of 2016, roll through as our first Nor’easter of the Winter season, bringing us about 2-3 feet of snow. With the high winds during the blizzard we saw snow drifts in the 3 foot range, almost to the top of our fence! During the blizzard on Saturday afternoon we headed out into the backyard for some fun in the snow, as Miles was super excited to finally see snow since this Christmas was so unseasonably warm in New York! I took the Sony A7ii (which I often use as a second camera for wedding photography) for these snow shots, and to put it’s weather sealing to the test in the New York snow!

Sunday was clean up day for the Blizzard, having to dig our way out of the house and clear some paths before the snow turns into ice! Miles of course took this opportunity as more play time, and we carried him around on the sleigh as well as having a few snowball fights!

It’s Monday and schools are still closed for the day in New York as people dig their ways out and the trains and subways continue working to get back to operational. Another delayed day of wedding photo and video editing as Miles stays at home I guess!

This past Saturday, July 24th was Scott Kelby’s 3rd Annual Worldwide Photowalk which Betty and I participated in in downtown Atlanta! We first signed up for the Orlando walk which was organized to walk through downtown Sanford when sign-ups were first opened. Since our move to Atlanta, of course the Atlanta walk was already maxed out at 50 walkers. Luckily for us the person leading the walk was also the head of the Southeastern Photographic Society, which we had just joined! After shooting Ken a quick email, he gave us the go-ahead to tag along as unofficial walkers J. Packing only one lens each, we headed out at 8:45am down to Centennial Oly ...
