Braving the cold, I do mean brutally frigid temperatures, of -20°C without the windchill and for the Imperial readers, that would be -4°F, of course I'm pretty sure everyone can agree, it's cold. I had joined the Toronto Film Shooters on the trek to Elora this past Autumn to hopefully capture the fall colours, but unfortunately, due to the rather warm Autumn we had, the trees didn't change to their usual vibrant colours.. But we got some colour, nonetheless.. Well, this time I decided to trek up and see how the town was in the winter.. I only went to their quaint little downtown section, only barely, snapping a few photos while there. I'll have to do a longer walk around the town, but the wind was so biting cold that I could only stay out for about 30 minutes.. After that, a brief coffee stop... Then another 20 minutes walking around and then back to the car and home.

It wasn't for naught, I got some E6 shots on my Canon ELAN 7NE, maybe a frame or two on the Bronica EC before it decided it was too cold even for it... but a complete 8 shot roll in my Super Ikonta, which just, like usual, kept on firing.




Here are a few images from there;
