Rural landscapes: the frigid river


The temperature was crazy cold (-25c ) and most water was frozen over in the southern half of this western Canadian province, but I thought there might be a chance of open water west of Calgary, so I ventured to Cochrane and was rewarded with superb, epic winter conditions.
I wore long underwear, my heaviest winter coat, toque and two pairs of gloves to make this photo. And as you can see, it was absolutely worth the discomfort.  🙂
