Old Main, Winter 2013

After The Storm

As the auburn leaves linger and the snow still clings to the tree branches, I was able to "capture" Old Main. Beautiful image for your wall. Sizes range from 8x10s to 40x60 inches for this print. Created Dec 15, 2013, the first of many storms from December 2013 to March 2014.

December 2013

The first snow storm of the year produced a majestic view of Old Main in all her glory. Storm was over, but the snow was still on the trees. The flags were waving (which is important) proudly proclaiming the USA and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. A proud addition to any Penn State family.

In The Gloaming

The Gloaming is the time of day when it is not dark (but almost). If this was a sunset scene, it would be beyond sunset, but not quite dark. Even though there is not a sunset, it still is not quite dark. It is the time of day a young couple might "sneak" a kiss or hold hands for the first time; it is a beautiful time of the day. It is snowing, the lights are on and you can see people walking.

Old Main Side View

There is something I love about this image. I think it is the dramatic view of the tree to the right contrasting to Old Main in the background, with the crisp, sharpness of the entire image. This looks beautiful in a Penn State home.

Early Winter

This scene was captured one week before the official Winter season, on December 15, 2013 in the morning. The foreground trees add natural "framing" to the scene.This is one of my favorites. Two hours later, the walks were shoveled and students were playing touch football on the front space. Images like this take serious planning before the scene is gone.

December Classes

Just because there was a snowstorm does not mean there are no classes. A lone student travels across the Old Main lawn to class the day after an 8-inch snow.

Beauty From The Storm

The first snow storm on December 14-15, 2013 produced a lovely view of Old Main in a panorama format. Many people think of the winter as one long black and white movie. There is much beauty in winter, but I am looking forward to Spring.
