We recently had a winter snow storm here Missouri. On the morning after the first snowfall I decided I would venture out and drive over to the historic Hodgson Water Mill. Upon arriving the snow was fresh with no foot traffic so it made for perfect conditions as I was the first and only person brave enough to venture out to this area. The temperature was -7 F. It was so cold my twist locks on my tripod were freezing up making it difficult to adjust my tripod legs. I made my way around this area shooting different angles as the sun came up behind the mill. The water from the spring was creating a lot of steam making the scene very moody. For this particular shot I got down as low as my frozen tripod legs would allow and began to shoot. I shot different exposures of the water until I saw one I liked. Eventually my tripod twist locks froze completely from getting water on them so my shooting was over. But I was able to get a lot of good shot capturing the fresh snow and wintery scene.
