Through the Snow by PaulMcKinnon Through the Snow by PaulMcKinnon
Edit: August 23, 2012 I cleaned this up a bit and reloaded it. I had this pic blown up, it looks great on my wall, better than here on the computer. My signature is not on the print.

Taken during a blizzard Dec. 16, 2007.

For those wondering this location is downtown Ottawa. The Peace Tower, the main part of the Canadian Parliament buildings is in the background to the left, but you can barely see it through the snow.

It's early afternoon and I'm in that bar (is it?) enjoying something hot and intoxicating.

There's a bar on the corner of the street behind this one, a good one!

Love it. One senses all the government peons have packed it in and gone home for the day, the snow a convenient excuse...

Looks like a beautiful city <3

The colours are so beautiful in this shot. And we get the movement of the blizzard's snow. Wonderful capture!

this building is beautiful .. i love the red and gray ... hopefully not sounding rude, has it been photo shopped or is that the true red of the brick?

weildkat Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2011
When it's not snowing the red is really that dark. I see the building almost every day!

I did add some saturation but only because the blizzard took the color out of the building, it looks pretty much like that. Thanks!
