Our temperature got down to -24f this morning. I knew there would be some lovely ice crystals forming along the fringes of open water in Fargo Brook. I wasn’t disappointed! These delicate “frost feathers” are only about 2mm across. Fine indeed!

Lovely, John. With that temperature everything freezes quickly and hope you and your camera were safe.

Thanks Tim! By the time I’d gotten outside, the temp had “warmed” to -12. I was able to last about an hour. My shooting hand took some time to thaw out as I was only wearing a thin glove on it (that GM5 is pretty tiny…)!

I’m glad to read that you are okay. I was listing to NPR’s Sunday Morning and they were talking about a parade in Saranac Lake, and it was -15 degrees. I used to travel that area and I’ve experienced low temperatures but not that low.

The lowest temperature I saw this morning was -32 near Cranberry Lake in the northwestern Adirondacks. That’s cold!
