Taken from Long Island looking back to Manhattan in the middle of a blizzard on long exposure without a tripod from memory! The challenges here were the finding of the location in a foreign city, working with the weather conditions and being able to improvise to create a “solid” level platform (I used sheets of paper from my bag (that became soggy sheets, my gloves and a sloping post top from memory!). My vision was for a very simplified, but graphic composition and when the elements of location and weather came together I was able to go to roughly the right place and then make my own luck and execute the vision.
