Cold Snap!

Yikes, but it's cold out there!

With night time low temperatures in the mid -20's Celsius, and daytime highs barely getting into the high teens below, getting the simplest things done (like laundry - downstairs pipes are frozen!) becomes a serious challenge!

Even at midday, it's too cold to be out much longer than half an hour, even if you're walking!

Poor Taela, short walks until this is over ...

Needless to day, having a regular photography outing, let alone a daily outdoor shoot, in these conditions is difficult! You know you're not going to be out long because batteries just won't stand up to the cold!

Here's today's photo, at -22C just as the fog banks were clearing:

First Triptych

I really like this photo and thought it would be a good candidate for a triptych.

This is my first effort at this technique in Photoshop ... no doubt there's a list a mile long of things wrong with it ... but for now I'm really chuffed with it!

I hope you enjoy looking at it!

And here's my third triptych:

Nov 17: Here's a vertical triptych - had to see if it'd work - I quite like it but not sure anyone would have such a large wall! What do you think?

Just when you start to lose faith ...

... a stunning shot presents itself!

ALWAYS have your camera with you!

New Location

We've just moved from western BC to eastern BC (about 10 hours' drive).

It takes time to adjust to a new location, finding places where the shooting's good ... I know that. Nevertheless, I'm getting depressed with what I've found around here so far. It seems so dry, dusty, and drab.

That said, we walked down by Windermere Lake over the weekend ... it was blowing a gale but presented some interesting photo op's and I got one worthy of sharing.
