Historic winter


Minnehaha Falls near sundown.

The fading sunlight reflecting off the ice and snow cast a blue light over the scene. A little Photoshop drained the color and revealed the black and white beauty of winter.

Mighty cold walk from the car: 11 degrees. But the beauty is worth it.

Other people are in the photo. Young people.

Oh I do envy you, well my 14 year old grandaaughter...we had three
inches of snow, maybe, last week...she and all the ragknot boys in the neighborhood made a snowman (with leaves) then went over to the Dart Line sledded down for awhile. I can't imagine what she would do with
snow like yours...well I can---this area would need a lot of
psychologists. Happy Times.
