Here we are with the first challenge of yet another year. "Frozen" has many interpretations. Not all of us live in a wintry climate but you can still find "frozen". For those in snow areas here are some tips from "Picture Correct Newsletter" for winter photography:

1. Check weather ahead of time. Tell someone where you are going
2. Travel light - don't take all your gear - pick it ahead of time. It gets heavy when hiking, skiing , snowshoeing in the snow.
3.Dress for the weather - and the unexpected weather (DUH!)
4. Keep an eye out for details: icicles, ice covered objects, textures, patterns, frost (great macro opportunity)
5. Pay attention to your camera's exposure. Snow and ice can fool your camera’s exposure meter and are more difficult to expose properly than normal scenes. Light readings from snow will often see the scene as an underexposed image. Most cameras will "read" snow in greytones. (I personally have found fooling with white balance can help make snow look more white than blue)

Ok, you two have an excellent start on this. It was around 50 degrees here this last week, so I'm going to have to artificially do this one. Or go to archives.

ice from the edge of a river and some fishermen who don't let the cold water deter them.

Beautiful, Kat. I love that very thin skin of ice. Nice scenery too

Viewed from the footpath on the bridge above the river, this underwater ice looks like mountains against a blue sky! My boot shown standing on the footbridge above the river. This is a favourite viewing place for me no matter which season it is.
