Cold Beauty

I’m losing interest in the cold beauty of winter.

I’d previously stated that photography had the power to make me forget about little things like…the cold…frostbitten fingers.  What was I thinking?   My fingers were so cold, I lasted 20 minutes the other day when I got this picture.  I’m ready for 70 degree temperatures again!

  1. Lovely photo! Do you wear fingerless gloves, those always helped me in the cold and to touch the camera. I like this up closeness of the image.

    1. Thank you, Martina! I don’t have fingerless gloves, actually! I think I need to invest in some for future excursions. I have regular gloves, which are difficult to wear and play with the camera – so I didn’t wear them on this outting.

  2. Ohhh, I like this one even more than the last and…this isn’t cold at all!! Now when your car needs a block heater…that’s cold! 😛

    1. Hey, thanks David! You’re right. It’s still no where near as cold as where I grew up!

  3. nice shot Jolene! I hear ya about the winter shooting…. I need colour and heat! soon…

    1. It cannot come soon enough!!

    I like the photo, and I agree about the cold. I was shooting from a dock on Lake Washington yesterday morning and several parts of me were getting way too chilly. 🙂

    1. Mike, I think our tolerance of cold dimishes greatly as we get older. I somehow don’t remember being bothered by it when I was a kid.

  5. But doesn’t the picture make it worth the cold fingers? 😉 I really like the photos you take in your wintry world. It’s the only way to see it way out here in sunny SA. (sorry, had to mention ‘sunny’ – it’s kind of very warm here at the moment)

    1. It is worth the cold fingers (easy to say now that I’m warm!) You know, if I hadn’t met someone special in Ireland – I may have been flying to South Africa instead in March. I’m still thinking of traveling there this August/September. I love warm weather! It never really gets “hot” where I live.
