0830-0930ish/21-29 degrees F, some wind chills as low as 5 degrees F/calm to 20 mph wind gusts

These shots were taken over a three day period.  The week prior had wind chills so low and heavy cloud cover.  It would have been nearly impossible to get good pictures, let alone the discomfort to fingers on a metal camera and tripod.  A warming trend is in effect, making it much easier on one's body, as well as not rushing to find subject material.  Cheers, and do enjoy this week's humble offeringn!
