Minneapolis - frozen and thawing

This is the third installment of my Minneapolis winter 'trilogy'. It covers a period from early February through today. The photos are in chronological order.

The first two threads:

Minneapolis - darkness and light
South Minneapolis - cruel January

Wow, Som...this is one of your best photo threads ever! Beautiful work! I love your focus on color, patterns, and the contrast between light and dark.

I found this photo particularly stunning:

absolutely, a great photo collection.
looks like it would take a while for the snow to melt.

Thanks, last summer I finally read the instructions that came with my camera, I think it is starting to pay off. Also I have become much more selective about what I post. I used to post maybe a third of the photos I took, now it is about 2%.

The snow is actually mostly gone now. By this part of March the sun is pretty strong so it starts to melt quickly, also rain gets rid of the snow fast.

Great pics as usual, I love your MPLS sets! Must have been cold as the arctic though, I don't think I'd have enough patience to take pics in that kind of weather up there where single digit F highs are not uncommon in the winter.

This is a very nice view of the Uptown area.

Actually I find that going on photowalks in the winter really helps prevent cabin fever, and also helps in getting aclimated to the cold. I think the cold bothers me less than most people because of the walks I take.
