had been itching to shoot here for months by the time I finally got this opportunity.
I had hoped to get the chance during my September road trip but bad weather
once again meant that I would have to wait. The October full moon was clear
and perfect but it was a terribly frigid night. It was unusually cool everywhere
but according to the weather office, I had headed right to the middle of the
coldest area on the map.
The good news was, as the night progressed my subjects gradually became covered in a thin layer of frost which reflected light beautifully. The frustrating part was that the frost was also slowly covering my lens. It was good for two shots at a time before I had to trudge back to the Starving Artist Van and thaw the frost over the heater vent. I shot until dawn but finished less than half a roll of film.
