The Forsyth Park fountain frozen on a cold, cold night

OK, so the fountain wasn’t really “frozen” — just parts of it were.

After a huge outpouring of interest in daytime shots during the “polar vortex”, I decided to wander back out to the park after dark on Jan. 7 to get some more shots.

I just love the Forsyth Park fountain. In a city with so many monuments, it stands out for its beauty, vitality, and dynamism. In addition to those qualities, the fountain nearly always has people around it who seem happy to be right where they are.

But there wasn’t anyone around on Wednesday night, as you can see. It wasn’t that late either — maybe 9 p.m. Given the diverse sources of light with varying temperatures and hues, I decided to desaturate some of these, as you can see.
