Late Winter Backyard Morning Nature in New Jersey.

Dawn colors as viewed from my rear patio door. The snow is nearly knee-deep. It will be a few days before this all melts. Composite of six images taken with a Nikon D810a camera and 14-24 mm f/2.8 lens. The colors in the eastern sky disappeared within a few minutes. Four trees, lots of branches and my last Rhododendron were lost due to the heavy snow and strong winds. During the rest of the day, there were several power glitches. A little after 23:00 the power went out completely for about an hour while the PSE&G crews reconnected some of the neighbors houses.
