Frozen Expedition

posted in: Landscape 0

I was thinking the other day as I drove past the frozen Scioto River downtown that I should go out and get some photos of it before it got warm enough to not be frozen. It has been more than a week without temps getting much above 20F and today was no exception, but we braved the elements and headed down to North Bank Park to get some photos. Unfortunately, we could only stand to be out taking pics for 15 minutes!

However, I did get a handful of decent shots, and with the dominance of white in all the photos I even got to practice some color enhancement, a new filtered B&W script, and some other tricks using GimpShop! I think they turned out pretty well.

OK, so it’s really not enough to have been a day off work, but since it’s Sunday, just a few inches was enough to convince us to stay home. Well, aside from a little trip around the neighborhood to get some photos.

Picnic anyone?

Strangely enough, we brought a camera to the Ohio State basketball game last night because I had complained about the fact that I really hadn’t been shooting any photos at all since the first of the year.

I thought that would be my only chance this week, but the weather provided me with another today, which was nice. Now it can go ahead and melt. Thanks!

More photos available on our Flickr accounts, mine and Angela’s.
