For some odd reason, I felt this morning that I should switch over from processing my photos from the warm and sunny “Vegas Versus The Canyon” series to the frozen cold and windy un-named series. Since winter is upon us in this part of the planet, and we are bound to get days like that, I thought I should demonstrate how crazy some of us can get for the sake of a photo.
This image was shot back on December 20, 2009. The weather was mild for a few days and all snow from a previous snow fall has melted away. Then, a couple of days later, we had this extreme weather system that dropped the temperature down to almost 20 below over night, and with some rain and snow falling, heavy in certain areas, flash freezing in other areas, what do I decide to do? You got it. Pack my equipment and venture on a drive for a couple of hours to get shots like this. Da ya think I’m crazy? Ok – you don’t have to answer that.
Even though the simple act of walking was very hazardous to my legs and knees, as well as challenging to my balance with a camera and tripod in hand, I was very happy to be rewarded with scenes like this. My other reward was…… I did make it back home that day….. needles to say with minor injuries and lots of frozen body parts.
Hope you like this image.
