Below Zero

Posted in Nature, Photography, Winter by leahyetter on January 14, 2013

I wanted to share a few images with you of this past weekend. It is VERY cold, like 10 (or so) below zero cold, and I haven’t been out much. But I did step out at sunset to grab these peaceful scenes.

It’s a solid blanket of white and glitter except for the footsteps of deer trailing down to the river.

The river is totally frozen over so I’m sure they have to break the ice with their hooves to get a chilly sip.

I posted this image on my facebook page this weekend after a few email requests to show what below zero looks like. About 2 inches of snow fell on the ground Friday night and a light skiff last night. The ground is frozen underneath and with these low temps, it isn’t going to go anywhere anytime soon. Brrrr.

    As Yankees often say, “Below zero temps are not that bad because it’s a dry cold.” Yeah, right!

      Yeah, it’s not too bad but there is quite a bite. I couldn’t imagine what it would be like with humidity.

    Yeah we shot in sub zero here in Macon. Icicle nose. The industrial freezer wasn’t nearly as interesting.

    Below zero here looks like a cup of hot cocoa and an old quilt. Beautiful photos of this frigid air.

    I truly felt a bitter cold while looking at these pictures. The middle picture of the frozen river/creek is incredible. You really were able to capture below zero. Nicely done!

      Oh I know. I get a chill looking at hem while sitting by the fire. Thanks Lenore!
