In order to capture this shot I used my a Nikon D810 with a Zeiss Distagon 25mm. Using a long exposure, I was able to capture the mood, with the reflections of the buildings in the bay adding depth and dimension to the scene.
Coming in on a hush, a snowstorm sweeps across horse country in Chester County, dusting an outbuilding near Route 82. A tree, likely planted to give shade during the long, hot days of summer as well as a place for birds to nest, gives the scene a visual anchor.
Philly has a special atmosphere. An amazing city with a real vibe. You can almost feel the electricity in the skyline. The reflected light and an 8 second exposure gave the image the quality that I was looking for. With so many shades, textures and lights this composition really says Philadelphia.
