I nearly got frostbitten – literally! — while trying to capture the sunrise in the my mother’s treasured old hurricane lamp. It was -20F, and I had to lie in the snow, waiting for that instant.
It lasted … a few seconds … and then … it was over.
After all that suffering, I was suddenly stricken by the realization that carrying the now-frozen lamp back into the warm house would put at terrible risk of breaking …. my departed mother’s hundred-year-old lamp!
Oh, sure! A rational person would have just PhotoShopped something. But NO! I wanted my vision to be authentic …. yet …. eventually conceded to add the foreground grass. I was not about to go back out and try it again.
(Maybe come summer. ;p)
