Weathering the Weather in Northeast Ohio

In the Cleveland, OH area we love to complain about the weather.  Right now it’s brutally hot and humid but not too long ago we were complaining about what seemed like a never- ending and brutally cold winter.  This cross country skier, just crossing the finish line of the Lake Metroparks Nordic Flurry event, is all smiles with his beard coated in frost.  Below we see a dog sled team competing in the Punderson State Park Dog Sled Races.

These photos do 2 things for me.  Just looking at them cools me off just a bit.  They also remind me of the cold winter and give me a slight bit of appreciation for the hot weather we’re having now!  Between winter and summer we had a very soggy spring.  Maybe, just maybe we’ll have a beautiful, crisp, colorful fall.  I won’t hold my breath for it though.

About Kolman Rosenberg

My interest in photography began as a college newspaper and yearbook photographer during the stormy 1960s and 1970s. I was influenced by many of the great photojournalists and documentary photographers such as W. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Margaret Bourke-White and other black and white photographers of Life Magazine and the earlier Farm Security Administration. Though many of these photographers documented the horrors of war and the plight of poverty, they also showed me the dignity and adaptability of human beings in their desire to prevail.
