Gold Fever at -18 Degrees celcius

Out on a hike with a buddy at a place I'd only explored in spring and summer.

My friend remarked on the unique rainbow sparkle of the snow. One of the best parts of going on non-solo photo hikes is how others will see things differently than me, and pause, struck by different scenes than would have given me pause.

I set about work to trying to capture the phenomenon with my camera, and found it came the rainbow came out best in the out of focus areas of the photos. Using manual focus, I played with various levels of blur.

My friend has gold fever, and today for his birthday he indulged it during our hike.

An underwater viewfinder!

Because of the sunny conditions, and very cold temperatures, I knew it would be a great opportunity to collect ice photos with lots of light reflections.
