Hi Brian
We're sort of used to Arctic-like weather here in Québec so we dress accordingly. To obtain views like these, I stand in the open for a few minutes while taking the shots and retreat back to the shelter of my car. I often end up with pretty cold fingers but the end results are well worth the inconveniences.

Great Picture Marc. I don't know how you keep the camera steady at -27. Here in Spain right now we have abnormal temperatures - it was -6 last night!
