Winter is here!

…and that means shooting some ice climbing. Here is a little “Behind The Scenes” of me hanging out with Terry Day climbing “High Anxiety”, a 40 meter, WI5 with very irregular formations in Red Head Cove, Newfoundland. Needless to say that this takes a lot of planning. Not only what cameras and lenses to take but the best outdoor gear and safety equipment that will keep you warm and dry but still give you room to hike and climb in. Thanks to Trevor Wragg for the photo of us.

Ice climbing season begins in Newfoundland

This is Nocturnal Wall on the south side of the harbour in St John’s, Newfoundland. …live, climb, repeat. © 2016 Greg Locke

Our last major shoot of 2013 could not have been more pleasurable. Four days on tour on the west coast of Newfoundland with the brilliant musicians and crew of  Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra and vocalist Eleanor McCain for the Christmas Pops Tour. We stole Eleanor away from rehearsals to play in the snow and shoot some photos in wintery Corner Brook.  But at -20C it was a pretty quick shoot.!
