Winter weather 2014
Negative Temps in the Keweenaw.
I was born and raised in the Keweenaw. It is located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Here we are used to cold and snow. Our yearly average snow fall is around 300+ inches. This year has been no different for us. Cold temps, negative wind chills, and many inches of snow falling daily.
When this photo was taken, it was -8 degrees outside. I had to take a few shots and run back inside to warm up my feet and fingers. The cold winter months sometimes bring the most beautiful crisp clear nights, perfect for practicing night photography. That is, if you can handle the negative temps. I use the cold winter weather as an opportunity to explore new photo techniques and expand my knowledge. It maybe cold, but that doesn't mean you can't go out and capture its beauty.
