The best landscape and nature photographer's usually go out in weather conditions that most people would avoid. Now while I hesitate to put myself into that category, I did pull a page from there book and headed out in to Fish Creek Park in the South end of Calgary this morning. Now I had to be in this end of town to drop my boys off for choir, so I wanted to take the opportunity to photograph the frost that had settled due to the fog today. It was around -16 C when I arrived at the parking lot and I headed out to see what I could find.
As I hiked I past a few other people who were out as well walking there dog's. One commented to me as we past that the only people crazy enough to be out it this weather were dog owner's and photographers. Now the river was mostly frozen over but I came across this one section that had not and by good fortune there was an old tree lying across it which I felt was perfect to add a little interest into the scene. The first shot is the one I picked for my Photo of the Day and I shot it using the WoodCamera app as I wanted to add a colour cast. However I am not satisfied with the way this app finishes things up so I brought the file into Snapseed where I did a little enhancement, took back some saturation and added the frame.
