Weathering the Cold

© 2016 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott

Overall it has been a fairly mild winter, but a recent cold snap has dropped temperatures to ranges of -30 to -40…very cold. The extreme cold has come with some beautiful sunsets, though, including this one that I managed to capture in a quick dash out to one of my favorite spots. I’ve photographed this old barn for years and watched it slowly decay due to the elements. The old timber is surviving one more cold snap, and the weatherbeaten appearance really adds such character to this sunset. P.S. The Rokinon functioned fine even in the extreme cold!
