Freezing cold today, and the 300 PF Nikkor doesn't much like -15C. Sharpness suffers apparently (temperature affecting optical calibration?). I don't like it either sharpness or not. Only hope of relief would be some heavy snow falls -- alas none are imminent. The colours are enchanting in their cold sterility, though.

The major river through our valley still runs open, free of ice, and that adds to the humidity levels, which in turn makes the cold feel even worse. However in my part of the country temperatures but rarely go into the -20 to -30C range. Inland the climate is drier and they can have much more extreme cold spells in those regions.

The heavy blue of the shadows is for real. This is what you get when the sky is blue, solar elevation is very low, and little snow can reflect into the dark areas.

The bitterly cold weather leaves its tell-tale marks everywhere. At the same time, the cold clear air and the very low sun elevation make the distinction between direct and indirect illumination most obvious.  I must admit to have a longing for some heavy snow fall.
