To celebrate my newly chipped lenses shown here, http://www.fotozones.com/live/index.php/topic/57878-the-family-is-complete/ I went out to capture a few quick Fairbanks street scenes today at -35°C. This is the first really cold weather this winter, with temperatures dipping to about -40°C - some places in Alaska have seen down towards -50°C over the last few days. (Images best viewed large, image data in EXIF). Smoke columns show up really well. Fortunately it is not cold enough for it to cause dense ice fog. Exposure got on the hot side, so I may need to check adjustment of the aperture lever on the 135mm f/2.8 AI-S lens (now -P) : #1 Street Scenes, first with 28mm f/2.8 AI-S (now P): #2 Then with 135mm: #3 All bundled up in good clothing (135mm is handy across the street): #4 A couple walking along the same street, but something does not seem right here. Can you spot it? #5 Right, thin sneakers as footwear, bare hands, and no mittens or gloves in sight for the male. What are they up to, and how long before he freezes off his fingers? Ahh, selfie of course. This is Fairbanks' most photographed sign. Perhaps also making a live broadcast? #6 Dwindling light at the Museum of the North: #7 #8 And finally the view from there: #9
If you do not like images of mountains as single subject, skip this post. :-) These were captured during two field trips to our Toolik Field station on North Slope in Arctic Alaska this "spring". On the drive up Dalton Highway the light was somewhat hazy and flat, and that is where IR comes to the "rescue". First view of Brooks Range appears when one pass Gobblers Knob, looking north. The low area is among the coldest in North America, and the hills were victim to extensive wildfires a few years ago. The green trees are the few spruce trees that survived, the black ones are burnt. Compare to the hill in the far distance which is almost entirely green. (Please view large). #1 North fork of Koyukuk river. #2 This is not spring melt but overflow that can go on throughout the winter: #3 #4 Still on the south side of Brooks Range: #5 #6 The high areas at Atigun pass: #7 #8 #9 North Slope looking south toward Brooks Range: #10A #10B Arctic logistics. #11 #12 #13 #14
