Shot this from Harriet Island in St. Paul along the Mississippi River. The river is iced over and there is actually a river boat that appears to be iced in on the right. It was cold out (-2F) so I didn't shoot as long as I would have liked.

This is a beautiful picture! You must have been freezing if this was taken recently!

Thanks, I appreciate the compliment.

It was really cold but I was dressed appropriately. I did get cold though as I had to spend a fair amount of time with my gloves off. I was unable to manipulate the small buttons of my camera with them on. I was manually focusing through live view, so I was constantly magnifying to recompose the next shot.

You think you are comfortable with something like your camera, but being out of my normal environment, freezing cold and given the fact that I don't normally manually focus with the 24-105. I would usually use a fast prime for night photography. I kept turning the focus ring when I was trying to zoom. So I would have to take my glove off and reset numerous times......uuugh. Is the focus ring and zoom ring backwards on the 24-105 compared to other Canon zooms?

I got a few decent shots anyway.
