Throwback Thursday travels back to Saskatchewan in the late 1990s with one of the slides I made a digital copy of over the Christmas period.
For anyone wondering if that’s -40 Celsius or Fahrenheit it’s both, they’re the same at -40.
This is a section of frozen marsh at Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada at dusk. It was my first winter in Saskatchewan which is probably why I remember the temperature. Strangely enough, I don’t remember it feeling particularly cold but I was 22 years younger then. These days I don’t like -10°C although the damp cold in Ontario seems to chill you more than the dry cold I remember from Saskatchewan.

It was the pattern of snow on the ice of the frozen slough that caught my eye and the way it was reflecting the clouds in the frozen surface. I didn’t notice the weak sun pillar until I was editing a scan of the shot years later.

Just in case anyone is wondering if that’s -40° Celsius or Fahrenheit, it’s both. When you get down to -40° it’s the same.
I picked this shot because this part of Ontario is under a heat warning with temperatures in the 30s with the humidity making it feel like the 40s.
