If you remember, last year my daughter got a new coat for Christmas. So, why, you ask, does she need another new coat this year and one which should keep her warm down to 40 below zero? The answer is she has accepted her first professional job in the northern plains state of North Dakota. Wind chills in winter often are in the 20 to 30 below zero (Fahrenheit) range where she will be living.
This brings me to the teasers from the Christmas day blog post. I will be helping her move via rental truck. We leave early on New Year’s Day for the scheduled three day drive with stops in Chicago and Minneapolis along the way. I’ll be twitting along the way and you can follow our progress here (see the Follow Me on Twitter in the left sidebar) or, if you’d like, you can follow me on Twitter directly by clicking on the link.
I will be using the WordPress iPhone App to update this blog a few times. Don’t worry, I am bringing my camera. I’ve been reading up on Winter Photography and how to handle extreme cold conditions. I’ll be reporting how I do and hope to share with you some unique photos from the upper plains of the United States.
Do you have any cold weather photography tips or ways to stay warm in very cold weather? I could really use them! Leave me a comment!
