Rural landscapes: no moving in this weather

FROSTY ANCIENT WAGON
NEAR CALGARY, ALBERTA

Yes, it was absolutely as cold as it looked — in fact it was -25C with a wind chill that made it feel like -30. Thankfully, this wonderful old wagon was right by the road, so I barely had to walk 10 feet to quickly make several pictures. This is one of the best, in part because it doesn’t show any of the very modern house in the background. Going black-and-white was a no-brainer; there was almost no colour in this scene.

  1. Whoa, Frank, you sure captured the frigid temperatures in this photo and I can’t believe you got out of the car to photograph it. But it is a handsome photo, and I’m glad you left the modern house out. There’s something about the bumpy texture of the snow on the wheel that expresses the extreme cold.
