frosty view

Winnipeg has a walkway that connects through various buildings the downtown section of the city. On this particular there were series of frosted areas on one of the bank of windows and so I took a shot through one of the patches. If I had known that it would have turned out as it did I think I would have shot through all the ice patches just to see what I could have achieved.

The blue area is the sky, the yellow part is the sunlight highlighted buildings while the darker area at the bottom is those portions of the buildings that remained in the shadows.

I had the sense of a totem pole... wolf, over moose over only what I can call a caterpillar(?)

The OP and the fountain are my favorites here. Nice work Jan!

The overhead view of the fountain gets my vote.

I like the original post - abstract without any radical image editing.
The cold is beautiful but dangerous, too. Would guess around -25C.

I had the impression of a flock of birds or a swarm of locust. Frost on the window of a bus shelter.

Saved the best for last, eh ? :-) Most interesting and wonderful
color combinations, as well.
