Snow birds


I was so excited that it snowed, but now I'm like "damn you snow, you're too cold!" Yesterday it was -8, dropping to -14 including wind chill. And believe me, when you are on a bike, that wind chill hits you right in the face.
However, I braved taking off my mittens this morning just so I could capture these sweet bird tracks across the lakes in Vondelpark. By the time I finished shooting, I couldn't feel my fingers. By the time I'd cycled to work, I couldn't feel my toes either. It's worth it though- Amsterdam looks truly gorgeous under a blanket of snow.

  1. Love those pics! I am going out now to hunt down some thick yet hopefully stylish boots with a bears grip.
