CHILLED TO THE BONE – GARRY ARMSTRONG

I slogged out in bitter cold weather with a blizzard blowing … and a camera in my frozen fingers. What a guy, eh? It was like working. More fun. Less pay. You ask for chill? These were cold, cold pictures. I had some serious defrosting to do when I got back in the house.

The gate, the dog, the blizzard

Desaturated with heavy snow and more than a little wind

  1. It’s been bitter and deep this year.
    The hospitals are probably full of geezers like me who had heart attacks shoveling snow.
    and I expect a mass exodus out of the Maritimes this year where the winters have become intolerable there. I usually say that we are ‘home free’ after February, but these days who knows?

  9. I think the B&W actuates the cold Garry. Well done! It’s been quite a winter.

    • There isn’t much color in the landscape during a blizzard anyway, so this just accentuates the lines. It does lose some of the snow details, but you have to choose between the two. I went with lines and design. I may change my mind and do it a
      different way next time.

  10. They certainly convey the cold. Good for you, and sorry about the frozen body bits–

  11. Garry, these are wonderful photos. But I think the “beware of dog” should read “beware of snow” or “gate closed until spring thaw”.
