Artist's Description

This photograph was taken in the evening on a January day where the temperature never rose above -30 degrees F. The windchill temperature hovered around -45 degrees F. We were living in a farming community just west of Minneapolis, Minnesota. It was called Chanhassen. Winter weather often brings out this beautiful blue ultraviolet light. Despite warnings not to venture out Kent did anyway and captured this lonely farmhouse a few miles from our home. It was so cold he kept the camera in a cooler filled with ice; and he himself could stand be outside the car for only a few minutes at a time. By keeping the camera in a cooler full of ice it kept the camera lens from fogging up when going from the warm car to the cold air and vice versa. When shooting in extreme cold it is also helpful to keep your nose and mouth covered or hold your breath when bringing your face to the camera. This keeps the moisture in your breath from condensing and freezing on the camera.
