    Inversion

    Jackson has been in the grips of a cold spell for the last part of December and most of January. The morning lows at our house have ranged to -27 F to -12 F. Some days have not gotten above 0 F. The cold air sits in the valley and is covered by warmer air at higher elevations. The resulting inversion makes the air stable and traps fog and clouds. This photo was taken at -13 F. I was outside photographing for about two hours.

    Chuck,

    Beautiful image of a beautiful area. Those are brutal temperatures for you and your equipment. I draw the line at a chill factor below +20 degrees F if I'm going to be stationary. The old body has never liked cold weather much and likes it even less the older I get. I admire you guys who can tough-it-out in conditions like this and get such wonderful images. I'm a wimp!

    Paul, Paul, James and Richard, Thanks for the comments. I appreciate the fact that you took the time to view and comment on the image. There is a kind of beauty that comes with very cold temperatures. People here say that you can tell when it is really cold just by looking at the light outside. I don't know how that works, but it does work.
