2006 - RockefellerSkater

Rockefeller Plaza skater - New York City, 2006

Although I'm currently basking in the sun, I know that many of my northern hemisphere readers are in the depths of winter – and I'm keenly aware that I will be back with them in winter wonderland (or seasonal affective disorder!!) by Christmas.  So today we are back to a chillier theme than last week.

I first saw pictures of the ice rink at the Rockefeller Plaza in New York City when I was about 15 years old, in the charming movie Splash.  I thought it was the most enchanting and romantic place that I had ever seen and I yearned desperately to see it as it had been portrayed in the film.  However, my first eagerly-anticipated visit to NYC was in August and there was no ice rink to be seen.  But when I returned a few years ago, it was in October and the ice rink was exactly as I imagined it.  Here, a lone skater is overlooked by the gilded statue of Prometheus.

This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister. Click here for a full list of photographs previously featured.  All photos featured in Saturday Snapshots are available to buy as greeting cards or prints in my RedBubble store, including the new Year of Saturday Snapshots calendar, an A3-size calendar bringing together the most popular images from the first year of Saturday Snapshots.  Feel free to browse - it makes a great Christmas stocking filler!
