POTD 27.02.19 - Toronto Snow Day

Yesterday we were blasted with a ton of snow… like a lot. We crushed the previous record for February 27, which was set in 2013. 12.4 cm was the last record and it was the greatest snowfall on record since 1938! We destroyed that record. There were spots in the city that had up to 20 cm of the white stuff. The extreme weather we are experiencing more recently is probably super normal and definitely not global warming *hard eye roll*. Yesterday I resisted the urge to stay inside and got out to capture this epic snow event. Here are a couple of the stills I captured.

I survived this snowmageddon and I’m happy to report that it has stopped snowing and is now a sunny and beautiful day.

Blasted by Winter at the Winter Stations

Wind and blowing snow at Woodbine Beach. This Winter Station seems to be holding up pretty well, but it’s signage has seen better days.

I have been waiting for some winter weather to hit before I got out to photograph this years Winter Stations at Woodbine Beach. I thought I might have been SOL since just yesterday I was out at the beach for a run and it was mighty sunny, it felt well above 0°C and all the snow was melting. This year I guess I would be taking some spring-themed Winter Station photos, but lo’ and behold! This afternoon the winter weather came in with a vengeance. It was a little chilly at first, but the sun was shining. Within a few minutes of walking around the wind started to pick up and the snow really started to blow. I got my wintery Winter Station images, hooray! These came at a price though. I wasn’t really expecting this weather so I was caught shooting glove-less. Usually not a big deal. However, this time I had the weirdest thing happen to my hands. After I got back in from the cold they swelled up. I’ve been out in the cold shooting with thin gloves or no gloves lots of times before, in far worse weather too, but I have never experienced this phenomenon before. I found it comical how big they got. Luckily once I ran them under some warm water they went back down to their normal size.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy these wintery Winter Station images, I almost lost my hands for these ones!

Ending January with some crazy cold weather. I’m not even angry about the frigid temperatures when it comes with light like this.

Happy Friday! Here is a trio of cabin photos before you head into your weekend. These were all taken within 5 hours of each other. It almost looks as though these were all taken in different seasons. It’s crazy how fast the weather can change.

One more blog post 'fore I go

Last post before I sign off for a month. I'll be traveling through China. Hopefully I'll come back with lots of photos to share. Until then here are a few selects from a shoot I did with Versa. These guys were absolute troopers getting dressed down in the cold weather. I was wearing my parka in just about all the images that these guys are wearing the white clothes in. Hardcore if you ask me. These guys were a pleasure to work with, and their music is delightful too.

Make sure you check it out their music video which I have conveniently embedded below. vvv
