Rural landscapes: frost and snow

FENCEPOST AND TIRE, NEAR CALGARY, ALBERTA

It wasn’t *that* cold, but never mind the temperature. The biting prairie wind made it seem absolutely frigid. I loved this section of countryside just north of my home in western Canada, but after 15 minutes’ outside the car, I was done. Fortunately, that brief time was enough to make this satisfying photo and more. One of my biggest challenges here (besides the cold) was getting a high enough viewpoint to put the tire below the horizon. Nikon D90, tripod.
