Interesting Photo of the Day: Dumping Tea at -40 Degrees

Davies lives on Baffin Island, in Pangnirtung, Nunavut, and captured this shot of his friend throwing tea in -40 degree Celsius weather. As the hot water hit the freezing air, it turned to ice particles, leaving a beautiful icy spray in the sunset:

Most of Davies’ photos are from around the Hamlet of Pangnirtung, Baffin Island, 20 kilometers south of the Arctic Circle. As he says on his website, it is a place for cold winter vistas, northern lights, twilight, and jagged mountain peaks.
