THE TORONTO ICE STORM
Over the Christmas holidays the Toronto and surrounding area was hit pretty hard with one of the worse ice storms ever seen in the area. I was driving through the area on Christmas Day and pulled over to take a few photographs to capture the magnitude of this storm and how it really shut down the city. I wanted the images to portrait a certain level of emptiness, to show that something was missing physically and emotionally.
These photos have not been converted to black and white I deliberately composed the shots so that there was a stark contrast of dark colours from the branches and bright white from the snow and ice.
