Minus 8 Degrees And Fog = Brrrrrrr (FZ30)

Since I like trying to get bad weather wildlife photos the 24th of December was a good opportunity.

I wraped my camera with a extra insulated vest since I didn't know how it would work in minus 8 degree tempture. I am not sure who got colder me or my camera. I think I probably gained 30 pounds with all the layers I had on. It seemed to me the fog had little ice crystals.

My wife said "These pictures make you feel the cold".





Elk with their heavy fur coat don't seem to mind the cold.

Brilliant as usual Roger....What about the trains?

As for your weather, Yesterday it was 35C, today 36C, tomorrow 37C and etc. Surely we can compromise

Evening Fred, nice comment thanks. No more trains until the end of May 2007. I am stuck trying to find wildlife until then.

Very nice, Roger. Great job and what dedication. As I may have said here before, the prettiest snow and ice I have ever seen was on a postcard, and these photos fit that description.

Rubber stamp them.

Roger, I just love your photos! I would like to get that kind of clarity with my tele lens but alas...I just can't seem to. ) Thanks for surviving the freezing temps for those.
