Photo Caption: “Beach Blizzard” – Cape Cod, Mass.
Heavy snow falls at Sandy Neck Beach in Barnstable on Cape Cod, Mass. during a blizzard. The snow was falling so heavy that you can barely make out a partially frozen Cape Cod Bay in the background. This was photographed almost 15 years ago, when I used to live in Cape Cod.

It is filled with hope for the new year as we throw away the worries from the previous year and try to start fresh for the upcoming year.
Every day Mother Nature gives me hope with her beautiful display of color and life. And on New Years Day in 2015 in particular Mother Nature didn’t disappoint. For on this day hope was shown in the form of a fresh snowfall in the Phoenix desert with gorgeous late afternoon light, providing those around to see an unusual display of beauty and life.
“A New Hope”

I was waiting here for 2 hours just before sunset at the Superstition Mountains in Apache Junction, Arizona filled with hope. The sky was providing some wonderful looking clouds and the sun behind me be looked like it was going to give me a quite show just before sunset.

I took this photograph of Delicate Arch in Moab, Utah on a particularly cold January day in 2009, with a snow-capped La Sal Mountains in the background.
The way I hiked in to the arch was quite dangerous – a narrow sheet of ice with huge drop-offs in some places. I ended up finding another way to hike out later in the dark and was able to avoid the ice on the way out.

A cold front that moved in overnight left some snow in the peaks of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains just east of Santa Fe, NM for the first time this season. I drove to an elevation of 10,000 feet and found the aspens just starting to change color.
