On March 14, 2017, Winter Storm Stella came to town with three feet of snow and a fierce north wind. She stayed for two days. On March 16, I ventured out to see what Stella left behind: I found beautiful drifts with stunning light and shadow a few feet from the back door. Along the western end of the Whitney Point Dam, I found incredibly detailed, compacted mini drifts. Ephemeral bas relief. As Minor White said, "One should not only photograph things for what they are but for what else they are."
