#StoryBehindTheShot “One of my favourite weather subjects to photograph is snow. Every winter storm provides its own challenges and exciting photo-ops. To get this shot, I had to leave my house around 3:30am. With heavy snow falling, I drove around the city of Wichita for several hours searching for photo-ops. It was dark, but beautiful. Even tranquil. The city was vacant of people. The lights of the city and my headlights were the only sources illuminating the falling snow. On one hand you had the untouched purity of the snowflakes. But the only way I could witness this beauty in nature was thanks to man-made lightning. It was surreal. Around 6:30am, I spotted a man walking to work in the storm. I quickly parked my vehicle, rolled down the window, focused on the man and clicked-off several frames. The city was crippled by weather, but here was one very determined human attempting to keep his life on schedule. According to the National Weather Service it was the second greatest snowstorm in Wichita history. February 2013 produced the most snow the city has seen in any month since records have been kept.”

Award-winning extreme weather photographer Jim Reed’s kit for this image was a Nikon D800 [insert product page] NIKKOR 70-200mm [insert product page] @ f/2.8 | 1.320-s | ISO 2000, handheld.
