A bloody cold shoot in the mountains!

It having snowed the evening beforehand, I travelled into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee, for my first shoot of the new year, and my first ever snow-shoot. The thermometer read 18 F (-7.8 C); relative temperature (or “feels like”) was 6 F (-14 C). It definitely was brisk but a good learning experience shooting snow.

    • Thanks a bunch Cayla – did I mention it was bloody cold? So at the first river part I decided to shoot, after a slippery descent, I managed to fill my rubber boots with freezing cold water. Ouch. Made for numb toes for the rest of the shoot.
