I took these photos using my Canon t2i with a 50mm EF 1.8 lens. I took this at the roundabout at Columbus Circle en route to taking pics in Central Park. This turned out to be my favorite photo of the night.

Today I went for a walk in -13 degree weather and I stumbled across a squirrel who had succumbed to the elements. I couldn't resist honouring the dead by jamming the little guy's tail into a snowbank, thus resurrecting him into the frozen squirrel zombie you see before you now. Unfortunately the little kids getting off the school bus weren't half as horrified as I was hoping they'd be.
This is the ice which formed from dripping icicles onto retaining wall stones. The green particles inside the ice are most likely from a bush that stands just over the ice. This was taken with a Canon EOS 60D with an 18-200mm lens and 31mm macro extender. The settings were 1/30 shutter speed, F9, ISO 200. No image manipulation other than slight contrast adjustment.
This image was captured January 23, 2014 at the Bethesda Terrace in Central Park, NYC. The photo features an approximately 6 foot tall replica of the Bethesda Fountain angel, the remains of an ice carving festival held the previous Saturday. It was 17F in the park that afternoon, with wind chills approaching 0F.

I try to capture NYC with its guard down.
This weekend was the start of the St Paul Winter Carnival in Minnesota. On Saturday evening we got a beautiful snow fall. I thought this would be a wonderful time to go out for pictures, so at 12:30 am I packed up my camera and headed to downtown St. Paul.
This picture is taken at Rice Park, it sits across from the St. Paul public library. The statue is of Marcie reading a book on a park bench with Woodstock by her side.

The weight of the snow & Ice on the bamboo stalks along the side of my house was enough to bend them over the porch. Shot with my Canon EOS REBEL T2i at f/2.8
