Cold To The Core | Mining Industrial Photographer James Hodgins

Just because it’s -32 degrees Celsius outside doesn’t mean we get a day off from doing our jobs.   The core samples don’t stack themselves nor do they care what temperature it is.  Photographing on site in the cold Winter months does have it’s challenges.  Equipment freezes up, batteries drain faster, and fingers go numb.  In the Summer months when I am underground at +32 degrees I wish I was topside and in the Winter months on days like today I wish I was underground enjoying the warm humid stale air.  In the end though it’s all about getting the job done and being prepared for what the environment has in store that day.  We look at the bright side here in Northern Ontario, the 4 seasons always have beauty for us to see, even if our eyeballs are frozen in their sockets.
