Different Perspective

I went to Central Park yesterday and took some photos in the Ramble near the feeders. It was below freezing. Even so, some birds were singing as if it was Spring. I played with the images little in Photoshop to make them into something different.

Ice and Winter Light

The weekend was freezing. We bundled up and went to the park to take a few photos. The ice and winter light was lovely.
