I suppose the pioneers were used to snow...
With the snow, the night and the lights behind, the statue seems like a ghost getting out from the dark.. very beautyful shot!
Such was the life of pioneers, hard and often with inadequite shelter. Good capture, Paulie. It looks like you were out on a cold, dark night to get this.
This statue sure does remind us of the hardships our forbears endured. Great job, my friend.
Very nice with the lights in the background.
A stark visual effect - quite interesting and powerful.
