Overview

Take a photographic journey through Buffalo, New York during its most talked about and most misunderstood season. Winter in Buffalo, the subject of folklore and myth, is exposed by Donnelly as it is, in all of its majestic beauty.

Using National Weather Service data, his own fabulous photography and a hefty dose of humor, Donnelly dispels the mythology regarding Buffalo's winter weather. Not the snowiest, not the blowiest and certainly not the coldest, it turns out Buffalo's winters are no worse than those experienced in places like Boston, Toronto, New York, Chicago and Minneapolis. In fact, snow is considered an asset (albeit frozen) in Western New York's ski country, to the south of Buffalo.

More than 100 photos of some of Buffalo's greatest treasures like the Botanical Gardens, Delaware Park's Marcy Casino, downtown's Main Street and the Darwin Martin House, all bathed in the soft light of winter and reflected in ice and snow, inspire and also debunk the exaggerations about winter in Buffalo.
