A Bit Of WInter, Finally

Von Humboldt In Tower Grove Park

It has been a mild winter so far. The temperature has started to slide a little. Yesterday we got our first hint of snow. It didn't last but it did get quite cold last night by our standards.
Alexander von Humboldt observes the event in Tower Grove Park. He was quite an interesting guy, a geographer, explorer and naturalist, but is no longer well known, at least in this country. A new biography was recently published to very favorable reviews. It's on my list.

Great colors and good composition.

A wonderfully evocative shot. Best kind of weather one could ask for!

I do love this wonderfully chilly shot Bob, so very different from our bushfire weather.
