Snowstorms, and other major weather events, are a big deal in the newsroom.
Extensive plans are made including who will be the reporter and photographer on dawn patrol sending in the first reports, photos and video, what are the stories we’ll be working on, who’s posting to our website, who’s working on social media, who will join the coverage later in the day and when, what are the deadlines, and what is the plan if we lose power. The list goes on but I think you get the flavor of it. If you’re a photographer covering a snow event you’re always looking for something different. You know you can always shoot the snow-covered streets, snowplows clearing roads, people shoveling and clearing their cars, kids playing in the snow. But to get something different, that’s the goal. I started at dawn Monday, hit the streets and starting making those usual photos of road conditions, snowplows and people clearing the snow. After talking with other photographers I decided to check out Ocean City. I ran up on the Boardwalk near 9th street hoping to get someone walking through the snow in this setting that is normally associated with summer. People love photos of a snow-covered Boardwalk. I’m one of them. In the distance I saw a figure moving away from me, moving quickly, but who did not appear to be running. It was a cross-country skier. I struck gold. While skiing in the winter is not unusual, to photograph someone skiing on the Boardwalk is a rare occasion. I jumped in the car, drove a dozen blocks in the direction of the skier, pulled up to the boards at a street end and ran up the ramp. Already passed me, but I could see the swooshing figure another five blocks away and making good time. Back in the car, I’m slipping and sliding trying to make up that distance. Just past the turn in the Boardwalk I skidded to a halt at the street end and ran up a set of ice-covered stairs, realizing when I was halfway up that this was more of a challenge than I expected. As I slide to a halt on the boards I can see the skier coming towards me. I’m guessing they are a bit surprised to see this guy appear in front of them crouching down with what could be a camera or a weapon. Enter Jeanne Schwab, sliding along the Boardwalk and coming right toward me, smile on her face. Thirty frames later, and a short video interview, she was gone. But I had that different image I was after. Sure it’s not the first person skiing on the Boardwalk, won’t be the last. But when you’re out snow shooting on deadline it’s like gold.

KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Ukrainians are getting an unfiltered look at the opulent lifestyle and alleged machinations of fugitive President Viktor Yanukovych and his top officials from thousands of documents being posted online by journalists who say it's more important to record their country's history — and document possible crimes — than hold them back for their own scoops.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — As his North Korean daughter wept Saturday, 93-year-old South Korean Park Un-hyeong tried to console her before boarding a bus to take him south across the world's most heavily armed border after spending three days with her in the North. For Park and dozens of other Koreans at these rare reunions of families divided by the Korean War, it was likely the last time they'd see each other.
