Icy Whiskers

I walked up to a small group of horses in West Bragg Creek this morning as the sun was slowly warming up their frigid meadow.  They were lined up along the fence, likely waiting for their morning hay.  This mare walked towards me and when she was close I noticed the ice frozen onto the whiskers around the mouth.  It was -19°C so the moisture in her breath was freezing as soon as it was exhaled.  The distortion in perspective of a wide angle lens created an interesting view of her head when I lowered the camera and put it very close to the nose.

  3. I love this photo. The perspective is perfect for the wide angle lens distortion. 🙂
