Sunset Over Ice

Well, I've never been one for sunsets- always seemed a bit cliche to photograph. This sunset changed my  mind. Photography with  a -40 degree windchill (I still can't feel the keys as I type) is far more difficult than I had hoped. After about two minutes out there I was suffering a brainfreeze and loss of function in my fingers (could barely press the buttons to take these shots). The deck is also icy. If one were to fall in the ocean there would be a very short survival window.  Look along the horizon and you can see some glaciers.

Now for some team yoga- having a yoga instructor for a roommate does the body good.
