Photo Essay


Winter started in mid October here in Edmonton. It has been going steady ever since, and will likely continue up until at least the beginning of May.

We had a fairly brutal cold snap for a few days last week, where the temperatures were minus 41 degrees Celsius with the windchill factor.

During that time, I basically hibernated and didn't leave the house. Then again, I rarely leave my house all winter anyway... only going out when absolutely necessary, such as grocery shopping, etc.

However at minus 3 degrees, yesterday was positively balmy in comparison to the harsh weather only a few days before, so I decided to venture out of the house with my camera.

These photos are the results of my little expedition.

    The photography in this photo essay is breathtaking. The delicate beauty and exquisite detail is unexpected given the time of year. Well done James... the reward for venturing out.

    Kil roy: when it gets really cold, the camera just stops working.
