Frozen in NYC

The real feel was 5 degrees at the Redbull Snowscrapers event. As you can see, I was quite prepared for it. Yet, it quickly became apparent that I was crossing the line between downright cold and actual frostbite. I stayed as long as I could, and then did my best speedwalking routine to the F train. It was one of those walks where it seems your legs just can't keep up with how fast your upper body wants to move. That coupled with about 20 pounds of gear on my back and I likely looked like a cross between a mountaineering backpacker and one of those odd power walkers. Nevertheless, it was a great experience to photograph these incredible athletes. Many thanks to the event organizers and snowboarders for putting on such a great show. I hope to begin editing the images and sound over the next week.
