Just great, Kamalyn! I love skating, and outdoors is the best!

Well I cant say the same as Nawitka, I would have a wet rear end if I was out there, but love the photo k :-)

kamalyn on January 15, 2012

Thanks Nawitka! It's sure pretty popular there - but what an audience! No room for errors, that's for sure! Haha Di - you mean you wouldn't find this fun? But you could enjoy standing on the overlook watching everyone else.

This is great, how did you con them two into staying still?

kamalyn on January 26, 2012

They were frozen in time :D Muchos gracias Pullmyfinger!

Thanks Ippa! It was such a great visit! And in spite of the ice, a balmy 50f that day.

Really cool shot, especially with that shiny egg thing in the background. I got a similar shot of sk8ting.

kamalyn on February 14, 2012

Thanks Roar, both for the comment, and for the help with Guy's page! And lol, the alien space ship overlooking the sk8ers has sunken into the earth in your photo! ;D

RoarX on February 15, 2012

Or hovering above... ;)

MoMof4 on February 16, 2012

It must be very disturbing to deal with all these alien ship...but it is a great subject for photographers :-)))

Cheers, Barbara

Fabio Roman on February 18, 2012

Excellent shot!



Greetings, Fabio.

wonderful winter scene, kamalyn; nice to be reminded what ice looks like :-)). the best to you, robert

kamalyn on February 19, 2012

LOL, Thanks Robert! In fact the temps had been above 50F the day this photo was taken. Even then - in January in the Midwest - only mechanical ice making machines made it possible!

Thanks Barbara - when the alien ships are this cool, it's fine to have them hovering in our cities! My guess is that they must need ice for power or food ;)

Thanks so much for the Like and the very first YS for this shot Fabiano! It was a fun place to be photographing, and well worth a trip. Greetings to you :)
