Despite having heavy insulated waterproof gloves, I could handle the camera for only three minutes outside in the -10°F (-23°C) deep freeze that Ohio and much of the US had yesterday. It was just too painful for my fingers. The heavy, gusty, biting wind certainly didn't help.

(Today was different; 20°F (-7°C) never felt so warm.)

Wow! The Mandelbrodt-ish part in the upper right is impressive!

Beautiful image. Great lighting – at first I thought that a speed light was involved. Hope that you have an uneventful trip home.
