    I like very much #1. Composition, sharpness and theme are great.

    Ame here, I really like #1 - and I can't imagine how people can actually live there during the winter. Although, a friend of mine out here is from Calgary, and he claims it's nice in the summer... He actually plays icehockey in Hawaii. :confused:

    I've spent many winter holidays in Russia. Temperatures down to -40°C, that's cold, but those are the beautiful days !

    I think I would like it in Alberta too :biggrin:

    Nice pics, by the way ! How do you deal with the cold for your camera ?

    At -40, you don't need to specify *C ...

    1. It's seriously cold, regardless of which scale
    2. -40*C = -40*F

    I always laugh when my colleagues in Edmonton mention temperatures. They are always clear to say "plus" in front of the temperature, even in the summer. I guess when it's just as likely to have +30*C or -30*C, those clarifications are important ...

    Many of those photos on your website Jeff are now considered classics...
