your photo translates the cold so effectively, but adds a ray of hope with the warmth from the sun.

Thank you. I think it was empty at the moment. It's more of a worker's hut but I can picture your thought!

I love the hint of warmth with a sliver of the sun peaking through. You give a sense that warmth is taking place in the cabin. Beautiful composition.

Behind The Lens

Location
In Forssa, Bollebygd, Sweden.
Time
It's in the late afternoon just as the sun is setting. (Ca 3:30 pm, it gets dark early in Sweden this time a year.) It was the coldest day in January 2016.
Lighting
It's all natural light as I love the warmth of the golden sunset even though it was -20 degrees.
Equipment
Nikon D7100 and Nikkor 24-70mm
Inspiration
I was on a walk and bumped into another photographer walking in the woods. We came to talk and he didn't know the area so well so I took him here. While he walked down to the frozen rapids, I stayed on the bridge and snapped a few photos from above.
Editing
Yes, I added a bit of HDR to it in Photoshop. I try to keep it as natural as possible. I don't care for added saturation and gamma so I hardly ever add that to my photos. Ever.
In my camera bag
Nikon D750, 24-70, 70-200, 200-500mm, a remote release, some cleaning tools, a camera light (Manfrotto Led8) and ym tripod.
Feedback
Just wait for the light and don't fear the cold! Dress well and keep the camera warm.
