Well to say it’s been cold in Ottawa lately is a large understatement. We were hit with a heavy rainstorm, followed by freezing temperatures and a dump of snow. It has been so cold that we are experiencing frost quakes which are usually identified as a loud noise in the night with no apparent cause. So they may be loud weather events but they are not lethal. The extreme temperatures of -35C or lower have to be taken seriously and I am, by staying warm inside. However, after a few days of looking out at all the trees lined with ice and snow, I knew had to try to capture a few pictures. I went for two quick outings near my home. It was no more than 15 or 20 minutes before my fingers froze and I had to return indoors. Usually, I use a tripod with my macro lens but I wasn’t fooling with anything in this cold. I set my camera on a high ISO and shot wide open, which meant nice fast shutter speeds but a very narrow depth of field. Hope you enjoy this ice-cold series and remember to click on the images to enlarge for better viewing.
