Minus twenty two degrees celsius is rather cold…

The cold really gives some interesting shade of color not only in images but also in reality. And I am extremely happy with Portas soft but distinct ways to reflect the colors.

Can you see the cold mist which lies like a line near the ground through the the first image?

Unfortunately it has not been this beautiful (or cold) for a good while now, but hopefully it will be sunny this weekend coming, and I’ll try to photograph some again.
My basement renovation also put some sticks in the wheel, especially for my film development which will have to wait a while longer.
But it is certainly worth waiting for, for in a few weeks is my new darkroom will be completed. Happy Days!

Enjoy!  🙂

  1. Lovely shots. I too like the cold. Too bad I live so far south (close to Munich) that it doesn’t happen very often anymore. 30cm of fresh snow, sunshine and -13C is just a great combination. Not sure if my cameras would be happy though 😉

  2. Beautiful tones Marie. Very cool (or should I say cold) shots. It’s been unusually hot here for the time of the year. More like beginning summer than winter. The plants are all confused. Should we grow? Should we stall out? Today there’s a change in the air and I think we have rain in the forecast. It’s very windy today. Gosh -22 C is like hibernation weather. Unheard of here. Have a good day.


  3. Sometimes I wish I were more adventurous during snow season because the landscapes are so dramatic! I love the movement of the clouds and the kind of pale pink tones in your images. I couldn’t even imagine what -22C would feel like, keep your hands warm!

    • Thanks a lot Jana!
      Yes that is a problem for me too. When it is this cold, I’d most often rather stay indoors than go out in the cold. This day I had to take my car, it was too cold to walk very long. It was too cold even for my dogs! 🙂

  4. Beautiful photos! I have never seen this mist, is it common in cold weather? I grew up in New Hampshire and can remember -30 degrees F temperatures. Breath sticks in your nostrils and catches in your throat! How many degrees F is -22C?

    • Thank you very much!
      I googled that, and -22C is about -8F.
      The cold mist occurs when humidity is high, while it is very cold, so it is not very often, but this winter I have seen it several times already, and last winter I think I saw it just once or twice.

  5. Beautiful pictures. After taking them you could go inside and drink ‘a gluhwein’, that is something people drink in Austria… warm red wine with cinnamon, sugar and a clove. It gives people a warm and happy feeling…
    We have in Belgium also temperatures – 10 degrees what is exceptional for our country, but not – 22°C.

  6. I love the understatement in your title 😉 Beautiful images; I love the frost in the third image.

    Looks as if you are sending some of your lovely Wintery weather our way (in the UK). Cold air from Scandinavia is due to meet milder air from the Atlantic resulting in snow for tomorrow 🙂

  7. As uncomfortable it is being outside then, really really cold days are wonderful (provided you can back to a safe warm place with hot chocolate) And yes, the first one looks great with the thin layer of fog!

    • Thank you very much!
      I’m actually out for more today! It is -20C today, so I have turned on my motor warmer in my car, and prepared a thermos with hot strong tea and some sandwiches. Just to decide what film to bring…. 😉

  8. Thank you!
    It is a wonderful camera, and I’m very pleased with it, and it was kinda hard to find one to buy… I haven’t had the opportunity to photograph architecture with it yet, but with trees, which I photograph a lot, it’s amazing to fit the whole tree in the picture, even though I stand close. Yes, I love this little camera! 🙂
