Photographer's Note

Normally in February the rivers in Saint Petersburg are frozen over, especially small ones like the Moyka (Мойка). But this year's winter has been unusually warm (global climate change, anyone?) and the rivers and canals in SP are partly to mostly ice-free. (So much for all that long underwear and heavy sweaters I hauled around Europe.) Still, I managed to get this shot of a wintry scene from the Sadovyi (Садовый) Bridge No. 2. I was aiming to capture a sense of winter even in the currently unfrozen North.

Technical: In RAW, temperature set to Daylight, then some raising of clarity and vibrance. In CS3, I converted to B&W, and used the High Pass sharpening technique. Time of day was about 14:00.
