WASHINGTON, Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Did you survive the East Coast "Snowmageddon" of 2010?
The anniversary is coming up on Februrary 4th, and while some people saw Snowmageddon as nothing but a beast, Washington, DC photographer Jake McGuire (www.dcjakemcguire.com) saw it as nothing but a beauty.
So, on the eve of the anniversary of the East Coast's, February 4, 2010 Snowmageddon McGuire is releasing a previously unpublished photo of the epic snowstorm so the media, meteorologists, snow lovers--and Snowmageddon survivors-- can have royal free usage of his striking image for media use or for use as a screensaver for their computers, pads and tablets.
The photo shows a DC-area set of cars completely buried under more than 27 inches of snow.
Before deciding to offer the photo for free to the general public McGuire thought it best he show the picture to someone who has seen a lot of snow and snow photos, so he sent a sample to Minnesota native and long time Washington, DC journalist, Al Eisele, Editor-at-Large for The Hill newspaper.
Eisele, who says he walked a snowy two miles to school every day as a youngster, was quick to reply.
"Jake McGuire's photo of cars completely buried in DC's 2010 'Snowmageddon' is one of the best and most artistic and dramatic snow photographs I've seen," replied Eisele, "and avoids the usual 'people with snow shovels digging out.' And I grew up in Minnesota!"
With Eisele's blessing, McGuire is making the photo available to all snow lovers on February 1st for anyone for use as a screen saver.

McGuire specializes in beautiful photos of Washington, D.C. and provides them for publications, as decor, gifts, recognition items and more. He is also a snow lover and weather buff who has taken hundred of snow photos but says this is his favorite snow image of all time, and gives the photo a philosophical description.
"The picture is not only a piece of 'capture-the-moment' photojournalism," says McGuire, "but it easily moves into the area of fine art as it combines an ethereal mixture of lines, textures, shadows and shapes."
