Rural landscapes: the frost and the tire

BITTER MORNING ON THE PRAIRIES, NEAR CALGARY, ALBERTA

It was at least -15 when I stepped out of the van to make this picture. Definitely worth the discomfort, especially when I converted it to black-and-white. (The scene was already close to monochrome.). A key part to making the picture successful was to put as much space as possible between the top of the tire and the distant horizon. I was definitely on tippy-toes when I pressed the shutter button.
