Allan Forest’s photographs from previous winters in Canada.
Being a Canadian, I know all about winter. I’ve seen snow and ice and felt frigid cold. I was in Poona in 1979 during December and remember waking at 5 am to take a cold shower before the first Vipassana meditation of the morning and wrapping in a blanket to be warm. I remember staying in a cabin on a frozen lake in northern Quebec when it was -40 C and digging a hole in the ice for water, only to have to redo the hole the next morning. I remember once losing my car in a massive snowdrift and having to dig it out.
I also remember how beautiful winter can be. Walking in pristine white snow. Being cold enough to photograph ice forming on a waterfall. Morning frost covering my car’s windshield creating the most fascinating patterns. Bring it on winter months, I’m ready for you!
