A really really cold New York winter

Playing in the snow

I recently landed in New York for one of the coldest winter days on record! The temperature officially reached -16 degrees Celsius (3 degrees Fahrenheit), though it felt like about -23 degrees Celsius with the wind kicking in.  I had just flown in from Europe where I thought I would have experienced the coldest weather on this trip. If you just want to get to the photos - please head straight to my gallery at http://elusivelycaptured.com/gallery/a-new-york-winter/. I was only in New York for four days with a number of scheduled work meetings.  In between these meetings, I managed to snap a few pictures using the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the Voigtlander 17.5mm lens to document my couple of days in New York.  This was an easy combination to use with gloved hands, though I went through about 5 batteries at -16 degrees.  It really was a cold couple of days and a good work out for my camera.  The only issue I had with the camera was that the electronic view finder (EVF) ended up fogging up and becoming useless when it started to snow - even though this is meant to be weather sealed.  I did use a flash on some of the photos - though I just used the small flash unit that came with the camera (FL-LM2) and I found that this worked well for what I wanted to capture.  During my work meetings I exclusively used the same camera but with the Panasonic 7-14mm lens (hopefully another post later).  Hope you enjoy the collection of what I saw during these couple of days.
