Today is the last day of Fall or the first day of winter or something like that. Here in the northland the days are very short. It is a great time of year to take photos of city lights. I hope to get out and do just that for the next few nights. I think I took this picture at like 4 in the afternoon. 🙂
One of many shots from yesterday’s skate date with the Mayor. All part of a campaign by the Minnesota Children’s Museum to encourage play. I should have brought my skates but I had more fun with the camera.
I took the photo on December 6, 2013. It was -6 degrees that day. Right now we are in a warm spell of 30′ and 40’s above zero. It is supposed get up to 41 on December 6th 2015. No complaints. 🙂
It is almost as much fun to skate as it is to take pictures. 😉 I got this one in the afternoon.
As part of the Saint Paul Winter Carnival there is an ice carving contest held in Rice Park downtown. They use chainsaws, ice picks, and blow torches to makes some amazing works of art. usually it is too cold when they are being carved and then a thaw the next day so they all melt and then back to the deep freeze.
