Close to the Edge
I have some photos to share from a walk yesterday evening. It was shortly after 6PM. The temperature was -18C with a wind chill making it feel like -25. The snow was continuing to fall lightly as it had been doing through the day. Bundled up in my parka, snowpants, gloves and heavy boots I was comfortable enough at the start but half an hour later my toes and fingers were numb. I was thankful for the automatic setting and robustness of my Nikon that allowed me to take this series without removing my gloves.
I’m calling this post/series “Close to the edge” as my journey took me close to the edge of Edmonton’s downtown core (south along a deserted 96th Street) and then close to the edge of the river valley. I might also add that it was close to the edge of the weather conditions in which a sane person would be out taking photos.
96 Street ends at 101 Avenue with great views of and across the North Saskatchewan River valley
