This was taken about 9 a.m. from our hotel room Monday morning. It was around 10 below zero at the time of this shot. Even the sunshine looks cold doesn't it? This is the gold course at the casino as well. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Wow...looks like Minnesota has turned into Alaska! Sure has been cold lately. Glad you had fun at the lake! Stay warm.

Wasn't a lake. It was a casino called Mystic Lake Casino. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I guess I should have clarified since we are in the land of 10,000 lakes. I'm quite familiar with Mystic Lake Casino. For those of us who are regulars, we call it "the Lake" or "Mistake Lake" when we lose. lol

wow what a beautiful scene! We have had plenty of ice and cold weather but I can't remember the last time I seen the sun - it has been very grey here in central Scotland for weeks so thanks for sharing that ACB and reminding me what the sun looks like! xxx

Another pretty picture. It looks like something in a magazine or on a postcard or a picture you would hang on your wall. There were some people at the christmas show near me that were selling pictures that they took of different places and things. Have you ever thought about selling some of yours? You do a really good job on your pictures. And it does look extremely cold...glad I wasn't there cause I don't like cold weather. lol

I am not very interested in selling my photos because then it would be a job making me have to go out to take pictures to make money as opposed to taking them for my enjoyment only. Thanks also for the great compliment. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

My favourite kind of photo, with nature at it's best. I could sit and look at views like that for hours. Thank you for a wonderful photo.

With all the cold misture in the air the moon that night had a blue ring around it from the light reflecting off it. I tried to get a photo but it never worked. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANPA BOB!!~

Hello dear Grangpa Bob. Yeah, when the temoerature is too low, the sunshine seems to be frozen if there is wind and we won't feel much warmth from it unless we stay in. I hope Grandpa Bob is staying next to the heater to enjoy the warmth out of it. Stay warm, Grandpa Bob.

It was actually fairly bright outside at this time. But the cold air made it appear a lot darker/cloudier than it really was. Strange how coldness affects even sunshine appearance. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

wow yes it is a very frosty icy picture. but i like pictures like that. it is plain but spells calms and serenity. great that you got some nice photos instead of the usual bright lights and jazzy stuff that casinos are made of. they are building a mega one in my country and it's really fancy. they had bids from all over the world and in the end the people who do las vegas sands won the bid. it's going to have three tall towers, and due to the fact that this will be the first casino in my country, the floor area of the casino will only be 5% of the entire complex. which is still alot considering how monolithic the structure is going to be. :)

Yes it is a very serene scene to say the least. Peaceful yet cold as hell. HAHAHAHA!! Well this casino, Mystic Lake Casino, is the largest in the state of Minnesota. It has over 3,000 slot machine. It's actually like 4 casinos in one. All have different native American Indian Names. I think the Hotel has over 600 rooms also. Anyhow it's HUGE! HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Nice nature shot. I have to agree the sun doesn't look to warm there! I could use some warmth from the sun about now, as I am sure you could too, since it is much colder where you are than where I am.

It looks like the clouds are playing peek a boo with the sun. Which sounds like a game you'd play too! : )

Hi GRANDPA BOB! Wow, never seen a frozen sunshine before! haha..It looks really cold yet warm at the same time but I feel a little lonely looking at it. Oh, don't get me wrong..it is beautiful and so serene but there is some sadness, I can't explain why. I guess, that is the beauty of it..so beautiful and so serene yet so lonely. Thanks for sharing the photo. Take care and have a nice day! :)

Amazing, glorious view. This really speaks to me of how God is still so amazing, even in seemingly "cold" surroundings. I praise His name for such beauty as this. Indeed, this is serene. Indeed, He is made all the more glorious in works like these. Indeed, The earth is filled with His glory!

Jesus is to be praised!

I've had days like that. It looks so nice and warm outside but it is really...really...really cold out there. Good hibernating day...I tend to do alot of hibernating in the winter. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~
