One Extreme to the Other
Whoa! It was cold outside today, minus 26 and dropping as the afternoon progressed. But I went out to do errands and while passing the Ski Club saw the snow blowing from the snow machines and loved the clouds and fog with the lowering light in the background. Didn’t last long out there because I was FREEZING. I wanted to have my “photo frenzy” that I promised myself yesterday so I went into the conservatory. Like I say, from one extreme to another. Now here’s a place where you can find a flowing waterfall in the middle of winter. My camera was hand-held, no tripod.
Both of photos are awesome, but I envy You from last photo, that is terrific.
When photographing in real cold, one must be very careful with camera. Last winter when we had nearly minus 30 Celsius, I warmed my camera in my car, then took some photos and back to my car to warm my camera again. Those photos I’ll publish next year sometimes. It took me nearly three hours to drive around and “heat” my camera.

Thanks for your comments Sartenada. yes, the cold really sucks the life out of the batteries. i may have that opportunity again this week, as i am going out to shoot winter scenes with friends and the temperature is dropping and the snow is flying.from jane my heartsong
