“Frozen Capital” – Vilnius, Lithuania – Laimonas Ciunys – Featured Photographer @ PhotoBotos.com
Yup! It is as cold as it looks. I am curious to know how many people are reading this post and are thinking that this looks like a typical winter’s day. Here in Southern California we are pretty wimpy when it comes to weather. I don’t really care for anything under 60 degrees Fahrenheit and my brother Tom in coastal Carolina complains about anything under 50 degrees. What is your threshold? In the meantime read the “chilling” story below and then be sure to check out the rest of Laimonas’s beautiful portfolio at http://www.laimonofoto.lt .
Here is Laimonas:
This was a very cold winter morning in Vilnius, capital of Lithuania. I went to work and I saw a beautiful vapor over river. I always have my camera with me and I decided to take few shots, but very quickly, because it was very cold -25°C (-13 F) ! So I did a few quick shots and ran back to my warm car. When I published this photo to Internet I was pleasantly surprised about great the success!
