Races look like fun, reminds me of the go-cart races as a lad in New York.

I like my Winter festival's in much warmer climates!!!! Vancouver is going through a cold spell (almost -1C today at noon). Hate it - particularly with some wind. Bright sky though - which is a bit of a novelty at the moment.
Nice stuff, Joe - those Fuji lenses are good, really good.

Looks like a fun way to spend the day, joe!
Not sure what our winter celebration will be like this year; the lake is still not frozen enough to be on.
Usualy, there is golfing on the ice and the "traditional" cast iron skillet pan toss.
Got a few weeks for the weather to get good, can't wait to be able to get to town across the lake (1.5 miles) instead of around the lake(9 miles).

That is a nice set of images from the North...certainly gives me a better idea than some of the blizzard photos others have posted to scare us Southerners to death. Looks like fun!!!

66 degrees here in North Carolina right now. I'm going outside to take advantage of it because cold weather is coming next week.

I love this shot Joe. Must be the 60. With Fuji putting out camera's & lenses like this leica is in big trouble. What a keeper of a lens.

He, he.

Thanks for sharing. Great pics. But since I can see sunlight in photos this must be far south (seen from Troms°, Norway where we still are waiting for the sun to appear)?

Edmonton is located on the North Saskatchewan River, and sits at an elevation of 668 metres (2,192 ft).[29] Edmonton is the most northerly city in North America with a metropolitan population of over one million. It is at the same latitude as Hamburg, Germany, Manchester, England, and Magnitogorsk, Russia. North as it is, it is south of the geographic centre of Alberta, which is located near the Hamlet of Fort Assiniboine.[30] The terrain in and around Edmonton is generally flat to gently rolling, with ravines and deep river valleys, such as the North Saskatchewan River valley.[31] The Canadian Rockies are located approximately 220 km (140 mi) to the southwest.

The North Saskatchewan River originates at the Columbia Icefield in Jasper National Park and bisects the city. It empties via the Saskatchewan River, Lake Winnipeg, and the Nelson River into Hudson Bay.[32] It runs from the southwest to the northeast and is fed by numerous creeks throughout the city, such as Mill Creek, Whitemud Creek and Blackmud Creek; this creates numerous ravines, some of which are used for urban parkland.[33] Edmonton is situated at the boundary between prairie to the south and boreal forest to the north, in a transitional area known as aspen parkland. However, the aspen woods and forests in and around Edmonton have long since been reduced by farming and other human activities, such as oil and natural gas exploration.[34]

I was out shooting today as well, and even though I am slightly farther up north we don't have much snow here. I think that is a pity, I like a winter with snow. And we haven't had much at all, not too cold either generally.

When I was out a few tiny flakes were falling, and I even managed to get one into the camera when changing a lens.

The more interesting part is how unpleasant a metal camera is in cold weather - even though I was wearing gloves (albeit fairly thin) my fingers became completely stiff from holding the M9. Had the same problem with the 5Dmkii, but not with my previous plastic body 60D. I think the Leica is the worst so far though.

I hope it's fine if I share a shot from today!

Just got to our rental this afternoon here in Yaletown and the host was complaining of the cold... until she found out I'm coming from Calgary.

Joe, nice 2nd pic up there.... (The girl with the hat).
