Happy Winter

st paul at night

St. Paul, MN

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. 🙂

Artists at work

Ice sculpture

Ice Sculpture

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.
