When I went to the ice show on Valentine’s Day, I took a bunch of shots around the park during my walk there. Quite a few people out, especially by the ice rink, but not much sleigh riding as there was in past years. Since I’ve covered these areas before, let’s just get to the pics! On a photography note, you will notice that the snow is not tinted blue as I have been working with white balance and the new camera is much smarter than the old one when dealing with it.
Coming up on the Gapstow Bridge. I think the addition of this tree really makes this image.
Lampposts, a bridge, and water. Plus snow. Lots and lots of snow.
The northern side of the Gapstow and pond.
A lamppost on the side of the rock stair.
The dairy looks so quiet in the snow.
Looking up the Mall and playing with color..
Looking out at Bethesda Fountain. Getting this view without people was impossible that day.
Birds and snow.
People were taking pics all over the place here, including numerous engagement and couple-type things.
Art with snow on benches.
The sun has set and night falls on the Mall.
The lights from the ice rink light up the Gapstow.
Looking back up the night paths to the Gapstow and the bright lights of the ice rink.
Night paths with some snow.
You can see the snow falling along the trampled paths.
Next week: A walk through the snowy Prospect Park rounds out winter.
