The Best Photos of Boston’s Cold Snap

Shutterbugs around Massachusetts took advantage of the chilly temperatures to capture beautiful images around the state.

There’s nothing quite like a multi-day stretch of sub-zero temperatures to make you intimately familiar with the sights and sounds of the great indoors. But while you were cuddled up and seven hours into a binge session of your favorite early-aughts teen drama on Netflix, photographers across Massachusetts braved the cold to capture the beauty of frozen New England. From icy ponds at sunset to enchanting snow-covered skylines, amateurs and professionals alike shot the gorgeous scenes you missed while hunkered down inside. Here are some of our favorite photos from the cold snap that ushered out 2017 and rung in 2018 with a chill.

One more to close out 2017. Thermometer in the car said 0° but at least there was no wind. On the way home, I drove down Quincy Shore Drive and realized the entire bay is frozen solid. So I know where I’ll be going next. . . PRINTS AVAILABLE! Check out gregsager.smugmug.com to purchase prints of my photos!
