Niagara Falls, Canada
The U.S. side of the Niagara Falls is pictured in Ontario, in this January 8, 2014 file picture.
I was out on a specific assignment to photograph the partially frozen Niagara Falls. There was a lot of angry muttering under my frozen breath that day, mostly asking myself why I lived there in winter, laced with several expletives.
I wasn't outside for very long, but taking photographs in such a bitter-cold temperatures was challenging. I was dressed appropriately for the weather, but the bone-cracking cold still pierced through all the layers. I had only brought two cameras and two lenses knowing there was no way I'd be changing anything out there.
For such a static landscape image I thought it was strong, and from what I've seen and heard, it was widely published. I didn't think the image would strike the chord it did, as I've never photographed a weather feature generating so much of a reaction. I think it was a testament to how strongly people felt about the miserable winter we had to endure. - Aaron Harris
