Photographer Michael H. Davies decided to take advantage of the -40°C weather at Pangnirtung, near the Arctic Circle, by having his friend Markus heave hot tea into the air from a thermos.
The amazing photo that resulted gives new meaning to the term “iced tea”.
The shoot wasn’t spur of the moment either, and with only two hours of light during the day, a great deal of planning was needed for a favorable result. He told Colossal:
Nothing of this shot was to chance, I followed the temperature, watched for calm wind, and planned the shot and set it up. Even the sun in the middle of the spray was something I was hoping for, even though it’s impossible to control.
