Default Rockies at -22f

I little getaway last week-end in the Canadian Rockies and we picked the coldest week-end since a long time there (-30c ... -37c with the wind factor ... so basically -22f to -30f). Also, they received about 1.5 feet of snow the day before.

And I forgot the change my ISO (I left it a 1600) ... however, the EM-1 didn't care about the frigid weather:


Pyramid Mountain (I also froze my fingers there...):

and a new friend of mine (using the digital tele-converter on the 12-60mm):

Enjoy !

G'day mate

... and I can hear your shivering here as well
I like #2 for its 'cleanliness' - but it's still shivering as well !

Great job with number 2. It looks cold, as it should.

I like them all, especially 2 and 3.

Good luck with the weather, I see the forecast is for 12 F in Edmonton. It is a little warm here in central Florida, with an expected high of 79 F. No wonder why my wife (from Wisconsin) likes the weather here, especially in December.

These do make me cold .... beautifully done. I like #2 best of them, it makes me wonder what the scene looked like just a few minutes later.

Your photos convey well the cold of the area. I like them all, but the last one is my pick. Excellent detail on the animal, and the ice on parts of its fur adds to the look of a cold day.

Spot-on as usual. I am so glad to hear I'm not the only one to forget ISO. Took a group last summer; bright sunlight, ISO 800 because I was shouting after dark the night before and forgot to change it. You'd think a shutter speed consistently near 2000 would have been a clue, but no. Anyway, yours turned out nice.

Great shots, this is one place I would like to visit, maybe when it's a bit warmer though.
