Every year Menomonie, WI holds a candlelit ski trail event on the Red Cedar Trail. The trail follows the Red Cedar River for over 14 miles until it merges with the Chippewa River. It was January, the temperature was -25 degrees. I walked along the edge of the candlelit trail in the night until I made it to the ice wall. I set up my camera and waited for the crowds to clear. Couple after couple skied up to the lights, embraced each other, kissed and left. I waited to have the trail all to myself to begin my exposure. Listening to the river rush past me in the night and the glow from the lights on the snow it set about a romantic mood to the scene.
