We like living in the Midwest for the variety of the seasons. Each season offers differing photo opportunities.
All week the weather people have been forecasting a Polar Vortex bringing sub-zero temperatures and dangerous wind chills. Today dawned at -23℉ with a wind chill around -50˚! Schools and businesses are closed, the commuter railway is shut down, and even some postal regions have cancelled mail delivery. Everyone says “do not go outside!”
But as a photographer, we don’t let anything stand in the way of getting our images! Some of them I was able to get from the warmth of inside the house. The image above is the frost on the inside of our kitchen window. I was able to use the Macro lens for the close up and photographed the frost using the blue sky as the background.
I tried blowing bubbles-they froze but the strong wind popped them too quickly. I also had to try throwing boiling water into the air.
