A Frozen, White Central Park

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.

Lampposts, a bridge, and water. Plus snow. Lots and lots of snow.
