The quiet of winter

There can be something magical about a snow fall, specially in the city. Late at night, when there is no one on the streets, no cars, no pedestrians, its amazing to hear how quiet the city can be. As if you are the only person alive.

I tried to capture that in this image. It was one of those nights: heavy snow fall, probably around midnight, streets were empty...peaceful


A little bit behind the story of this image. I was shooting a show in a small bar that night. It was snowing pretty heavily for most of the afternoon, driving and parking in the area was a hassle. I decided to take a little break and went outside. It might of been the contrast to the loud music inside, the world just seemed to peaceful. While I could hear the thump of the music through the walls and door to the bar, I found the scene just captured the serenity of a late Montreal night covered in snow.

That just goes to show you that you can get inspired at any time, for any thing.


  1. Wow. This one is gorgeous! You definitely captured what you set out to.

  2. Aw man, my comment disappeared!

    Gorgeous picture!
    Any chance of you selling prints?

  3. Julie-Anne, prints are totally do-able. How big were you think? Drop me an email / message and we'll chat.

    I sold a print a few months back to someone in the UK and used a good UK lab to print and drop ship to his place, saving him on shipping =)
