Capturing the Fading Light at Winter’s End

The Joy of a Camera

Winter is waning. I went out with my camera late this afternoon and found myself surprised by the abundance of color already on display as the snow and ice melts. These were taken at Centennial Lakes Park in Edina, a suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

I was in the area to check on a lockbox at my condo listing. An agent had told me it was jammed. Sure enough, it was.

Thumbs down about the lockbox. Two thumbs up for the pictures. I’ll post more later. (March 23, 2010 — Visit my flickr account by clicking on the photo in the sidebar to see more photos from this day.)

    I love your shot of the stone path and the way it makes an “S” across the picture – cool shot !!

      Thanks! I loved that stone path…also the variations in colors, shapes and sizes of the surrounding landscape.

      It was rather cool and blustery in the park on Saturday. I needed my coat, a hat and gloves. By contrast, today was sunny and near or above 60 degrees! That’s Minnesota for you. :^)
