Roger Foley’s Winter Photography

I’m sure we’ve all taken pictures of all the snow by now, but I’m also sure our collective snapshots don’t amount to THIS:

All photography by Roger Foley

Landscape photographer Roger Foley, who lives within jogging distance of us in Arlington, told me he would send me some of his snaps from our recent snowstorms. The picture above is the result of him trudging through the snow to Four Mile Run. Honestly? My camera just doesn’t do this stuff.

Roger also went out to the National Arboretum, “a gorgeous place most people in our area have never seen, even in warm weather. Would you have thought these pix were taken in NE DC?” he wrote in an e-mail.

Check it out:

I mean, can you even believe these pictures were taken in our own back yard? If you want to see some more of his landscape photos, take a look at his new book, A Clearing in the Woods, which features a handful of DC gardens in this compendium of contemporary landscape photography.

It’s definitely worth a place on your coffee table!

  1. So glad to meet you today and thanks for sharing about Roger Foley’s photography — beautiful. That first picture is so captivating, like surreal floating snow puffs. The arboretum is one of my favorite places in DC. I look forward to seeing more of his photos in his book. — Ashley

  2. Just beautiful. Living near Four Mile Run in the past, I had no idea how magical and stunning it looks with so much snow. What a talent and gift he has. Thanks for sharing, and thanks for ending on a bright cheery spring photo that will be sure to give many hope, spring is on it’s way. xo
