Welcome to Week 38 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge. This first TPC of 2017 is something appropriate for the season that we’re currently experiencing in the Northeast of the United States, as temperatures have started dropping for the onslaught of the lovely time of year that we call Winter.
The theme for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge is Cold! Of course, cold is a relative concept, and it doesn’t require that you’re in a colder climate to capture it… Use your imagination and let it roam free with the excitement of the new year to interpret your view of cold.
Here’s an image from almost 10 years ago that gives an idea of how cold it can be in this area…
This capture from January of 2007 came from a little expedition to the town of Deep River, Connecticut, where I went to give a presentation on action photography to the local camera club. As I arrived early in the afternoon, I decided to do a little sightseeing and found this lovely view of the Connecticut river.
The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:
- Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
- Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
- Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
- Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!
Have fun going out there (or staying indoors) to capture cold (just don’t catch a cold!) in your style!
This image was captured with a Canon EOS 1D MkII using an EF 70-200 f/2.8L lens. Exposure settings were at f/7.1 and 1/200 second with 250 ISO. Just fast enough so that I wouldn’t add shake to the lens from the outside temperature.
