The Death of Winter

In early March, when the ice still had a foothold though fading fast, Crosswinds Marsh has very few visitors at sunset. The cold drives them away. The boardwalks are still, the white swans have not returned yet, and only a few Canada geese have. Winter is clearly dying…but it’s not dead yet.

“When I showed up to shoot this scene, the only company I had was a pair of geese who were walking on a thin layer of ice. The ice itself reverberated with sound – just like you see in the movies. A month earlier, the boardwalk was covered with stamped down snow-turned-to-ice, but now, it was mostly gone. Winter was clearly failing fast.” – Brian Kurtz
