As of now, there are only a few weeks left of this abysmal winter and we are all longing to see the sunlight permeate the skies as well as our hearts. A lot of us are over seeing constant snowfall while experiencing these record breaking temperature drops, but one thing I hope we can all agree on is the beauty that all this snowfall brought to most landscape and how breathtaking it all can be. In the New York town of Cold Spring, their snowfall contrasts anything the city gets, and while our streets may seem like its trying to hold on to the lingering ice that once was powder, Cold Spring tends to look untouched aside from the plowed out main roads that keeps some order to town traffic. Being in the city, I forget that towns like this handle snow differently, so when I came up on a day where the city was borderline dry, I was shocked to see that everything was blanketed in pure white. Even the mighty Hudson River, stopped dead in its tracks, resembled an arctic wasteland. There was this eerie calm to it all, a silence that was actually deafening. Aside from the few people I came across, life seemed scarce amongst the river as well as parts of the town. These are a few photos I hope can represent the feel of my experience in the quaint town of Cold Spring.
