The glow from the sky reflected on the ice is wonderful. It sets a beautiful winter tableau. In my mind, I start making up a story about this scene.
If you are north of us, I can just imagine how cold it is there- pretty brutal here too. You were hardy to get out and snap this shot!
You seemed to have captured this shot at a perfect time of day. I love the lighting.The skaters were definitely not the only hardy souls out and about.
