Sometimes a person just has to forget about the cold, bundle up and get out into the snowy landscape and capture the beauty.
The following pictures are from just such a day. On February 6th, after finishing my morning school bus run,I bundled up and, together with my camera went out in search of photos.
Yes, it was cold. The high for that day was a cold -18 Celsius, but for at least 1 ½ hours I almost forgot about the temperatures.
I love the effect of the trees outlined with snow. This is at our local park, so I had to accept the lamppost in the picture.
I made my way over to Lake Minniwasta. Usually I am on the east side, but this day I was further west. It was a winter wonderland wherever I looked. I was enthralled with the way the snow clung to the links of this chain.
Stepping back a little, I could capture the beauty of the snow covered trees and shrubs as well.
One of the reasons I wanted to go to this place, was this particular fence. I thought it might look good in the snow and I was not disappointed.
Here is another short portion of the fence with Lake Minniwasta in the background.Of course, you can't see any lake, because it is all frozen and snow covered.
When I had lost most of the feeling in my fingertips, which were safely in 'warm' gloves, I knew it was time to head for home.
Once I got home, it did. not take long to warm up and feel my fingers again.
In case anyone is wondering.No, I did not suffer any damage,just got really cold.
Maybe just a quick look at a 'warmer' picture will also help.
