Photographer's Note

This is the frozen St. Lawrence river in the winter of 1986, the city of Montreal in the background. I took my gloves off for the shot and I could hardly take the shot, as the temperature was extremely cold and without the city back there I would have felt like in the North Pole.

The current condition of the 20-year old print is really horrible, I can't blame the scanner. But after conversion to B&W and playing a little bit with some of the parameters - it has somehow the flavor of the original composition; I hope that the result is decent, at least for those that like this kind of pictures.

The blur and the vague contrast are hopefully appropriate for a "memory" shot, and also they may somehow make the city to look like a distant mirage.
