This shot was done very fast as we were experiencing -44 celcius with the wind chill. Why was I out in that temperature you ask? Well I didn't plan on leaving the truck and was just going to shoot some other mist photos from inside the heated cab BUT as fate would have it, I drove straight into a snow bank that I didn't see at the crest of a hill so I made the best of the situation and went for a little walk, ....well, run actually.

I kept the camera tucked away in my jacket until I was in position, snapped a few and ran back to the truck and waited to be pulled out from the snow bank.

Good thing I knew a friend with a 4x4 to pull me out so I didn't wait long!! If I had to wait for a tow truck, the news reports on that day was informing everyone that it was a 24 hour wait for service as the city was under a terrible cold snap.

20d, ISO 200, 17 - 85mm

Torgny, there is much beauty in capturing the flight of a flock of birds. I was especially interested in the first one.

Thanks Oakey. Yes, that is dry snow and rocks I was standing in. The water in this little creek flows quite warm here and is a hot bed for all types of ducks and other birds.
