Even in the dead of winter, this cheap little solar powered garden light managed to get just enough sunlight to do it's job.

It took a bit of setup in the -15 weather, but with frozen fingers and a tripod, I captured the robust light in action, before it succumbed to the cold and dark night. (The captured colors were not changed. White balance at Auto)

Thanks jDIY. . . The air is very dry here, so often we get ice crystals that sparkle even on a sunny day
