Winter 2014 in Washington D.C.

The last few years, winters in DC have been mild and boring. 60 degree days and no snow or ice to speak of. I appreciate each season and as such, like winters that actually feel like winter. Give me cold weather, sleet, snow, and everything in between and I’m a happy camper. As long as everyone stays safe, I find winter to be one of the most exciting times of the year.

This year, we got a little more snow than we were accustomed to. And, snow and cold always makes for interesting opportunities when it comes to imagery. Here is a collection of images I have taken this year that show the winter mood (and others I took along the way). I hope we get another bump or two of snow before we head into spring!

The images are arranged not by date, but my location. I hope you enjoy the collection; I welcome any thoughts and comments.
