Art GalleryESKIMO SPIRIT, MAMMAL BREATH, NOVA SCOTIA, 1975 JANUARY

Taken in Truro, Nova Scotia, the shot took me more than two hours to get counting travel time from the car and back.

With the wind chill it was -16 F and I found my shutter froze. I had reached the waterfall with no way to shoot so I stopped the lens down and put the lens cap on, set the camera on bulb and shot, then removed the lens cap and counted to 16 (chimpanzes). Of all the exposures this proved to capture the spirit of the place.
