Travel Photo Thursday: What Cold Looks Like in Calgary
Calgary is in the middle of a cold snap. Last night it was -49C with the windchill. Fortunately the cold is supposed to break by the weekend – which is a good thing because I’m cross country skiing to a lodge that Prince William and his new bride visited near Lake Louise last summer. In -49C temperatures I wouldn’t want to go.
But the cold does provide opportunities for catching close-ups of Jack Frost, especially when you’re windows are junk. So I spent some time with a new macro lens having fun this morning. They’re not my usual travel photos but some shots look otherworldly and for those of you lounging on a beach, this is something you’ll never see unless you spend time inside a freezer.
