Spring is On the Way – Not!

To All the Ships At Sea –

You say you don’t believe in global warming. Huh?  We’ve had almost 40 consecutive days of freezing some days minus 10 degrees. What’s the motto – don’t complain about the weather as there is nothing to do about it except for go to Ecuador which I will be doing shortly.

To all the ships at sea,

What I strongly recommend at this time of year is an ice breaker. We are rapidly coming up on the winter solstice and the temperature at the falls drops to five below zero at night. It makes for some very beautiful ice designs. Please remember to keep your camera and lenses in an extremely cool place before you take them out in very cold weather when photographing in the wintertime. I recommend transporting the camera and lenses in the trunk of your car, especially if you are driving any distance. This is because you don’t want to know what will happen when your camera transitions from the seventy-eight degree interior of your car to near-freezing temperatures. You won’t need a fog filter, that’s for sure! Common sense is a great ingredient when making a photograph.
