Frost Remains

As was my hope, the frost remained overnight and seemed to only multiply today. How beautiful, our city! How beautiful, the frost!
I shot this image at 1/100 with an aperture of f/2.8. My focal length was 68 mm and my ISO was 100.
It is good to find something to contrast with the otherwise white scene that frost often gives. Here the hearts turned out to be the perfect contrast!

Seeing this lady make her way through the winter wonderland, I knew I had to take her picture. Her bright coat and hat were exactly the right pop in the frosty landscape. The blur worked quite well with this composition.
I shot this image at a speed of 1/60 and aperture of f/5. My focal length was 70 mm and my ISO was 100.

Couldn't resist shooting Garry! I love to get shots of pedestrians in the city. I do make an effort to make sure they are not so easily identifiable by softening the image or at least the person.
I shot this at 1/50 with an f stop of f/5. My focal length was 40 mm and ISO 100.

The contrast between the strong, steely corporate buildings and the gentle frost is significant. Further contrast is found between the teal glass and the greys/whites in the image.
My aperture was f/2.8 and shutter speed 1/125. My focal length 38 mm and ISO 100.
