I shot these pictures some time ago (in 2011) and I've posted them on other forums. But I do like going back to them, especially now that autumn is slowly turning into winter (yes, I like the cold!).

As the title suggests, they were shot on a very cold day, with temperatures ranging between -30 and -20 C.

Superb...an extreme environment well captured. The 2nd has the all important dynamic light but the first has such atmosphere. Really enjoyed these two well done.

Yes, forests are always challenging. #1 is especially good.

Both are excellent, but I've mentioned before on other photographs that I am drawn into the image by the trail.  I think no. 1 is simply stunning.

I love the shots but I am wondering how you get a camera to function normally in 22 degree below zero conditions. What special techniques must you use?

Cheers Francois and Chris! Shooting in such a low temperature takes some preparation. Namely, you need to get the batteries fully charged and bring some spares with you. These were shot with a Canon Eos 50D/17-40 mm F4L and the standard battery lasted for about an hour and a half. And I can tell you that was pretty much the longest possible time for me to stay out in those conditions!

I can feel the stillness of the cold air in those photos. You're making me even more impatient for winter.

Chris, shooting in the cold isn't too different from normal. Battery life is cut short, and you need to be careful about condensation. When I'm in the backcountry, I sleep with my batteries to keep them warm. The camera goes into in a sack and buried in the snow to protect it from temperature changes. If you bring the camera in the tent with you, it'll take hours for the condensation to clear.
