Pouring a Thermos of Hot Tea at -40°C Near the Arctic Circle

Ontario-based photographer Michael Davies captured captured this impressive shot of his friend Markus hurling a thermos of hot tea through the air in -40°C weather. At such frigid temperatures water freezes instantly to form a dramatic plume of ice. Markus threw the hot tea into the freezing air, which resulted in one seriously stunning image.

“Around 1 PM I jumped on my skidoo along with my friend Markus and we drove 45 minutes to the top of a nearby mountain where the light (which is almost always pink near the solstice) would hit the hills. Prepared with multiple thermoses filled with tea, we began tossing the water and shooting.”

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.
