Winter Scenes 2012

After two years of snowfall totals well above average, this year New Jersey had above normal temperatures and a snowfall total far below average. But regardless of the temperatures or snowfall, beauty abounded and I couldn’t resist trying to capture it in photographs. Here are a few of my favorites.

About J. Thomas Ross

Since retiring from a career as a high school English and history teacher, I've been pursuing a career as a writer. My main interest is in writing novels, but I've also written short stories and poetry and done a little editing on the side. I am currently working on a Young Adult novel. One of my poems - "Winter" - won an award at the 2010 Philadelphia Writers Conference, and you can find my fantasy short story "A Rock Is a Rock Is a Rock ... Or Is It?" in the anthology Tales of Fortannis: A Bard's Eye View, which is available in print and Kindle format from Amazon and as an e-book from Double Dragon Press.

  1. Vivid and truly cinematic. The eye of an artist. I can feel the cold, damp air. Actually those light dustings are the PERFECT snowfall, just enough to be decorative, but the roads are still clear.
