We usually think that getting up early, or catching the light at its best during the golden hour, offer the best conditions to make the best landscape photos.
Getting out in sub-zero temperatures, however, is a whole different game by itself!
Here’s a photograph I produced in the middle of Canadian winter, at minus temperatures, by the lake, at Bronte Harbor in Oakville. Yes, I froze my ass off! But the end result was nothing short of spectacular to me.
The trick here is wireless flash and the placement of multiple remote flashguns in strategic positions:
There is one behind the tree stump, towards the low-center of the image, hidden by the tree itself.
Another one is hidden just off the frame, to the low-left part of the image, placed on a tripod, shooting down on the ice. This gave the ice this wonderful, diamond-like texture.
A third gun was placed on stand, to the left of the frame, bathing the frozen brunches with light.
I triggered the guns using my trusted Cactus Wireless Flash Transceiver V6.
Photography and luck go hand-in-hand! See that magnificent light coming through the clouds? I never planned for that! It was just there, the right time!
