    Here are a couple of pictures I took the day after the only real snow we got here before Christmas.


    Some footprints in the snow a while after there were people around to have made them



    I like this one because the way the sun has overexposed the right side of the picture along with the way my dog's ears are up make me imagine I just caught a nuclear blast going off.

    @Rob: Adorable Dog, awesome background, very nice shot!

    Took photos the other day, and played with them in the editing section of Photobucket... Much preffered to the GIMP :)

    My favorites:

    I was out playing with some toys in the snow late last night.


    The whole set is here.

    Only wish I had a better camera, or at least one that had photography as it's first priority. Ended up with lots that just wouldn't focus.

    @William DV Camera = Digital Video Camera.

    or to be more specific, usually refers to the series of camcorders that use miniDV tape but are not HD.

    Thanks for encouraging words, oldhat, dorkmuffin and 256.

    I froze my nuts off taking this picture:

    Subzero temperatures fortunately have the benefit of making the air really clear.

    Out in the snow again this morning.
    I've been all over excited about taking pictures so need to calm down a bit and get back on with my writing, but I wanted to share this, which is probably my favourite shot of the last few days.

    @RobSpalding: Beautiful, and unnerving if seen through an airplane window.

    Speaking of snow...it is time to keep your appointment with the Winter Man!

    I've been spending a considerable chunk of time lately researching what sort of DSLR would work best for my needs. Then I realized I shouldn't be thinking of upgrading my camera, I should be out using it. So I went for a walk.

    @Jon, those are incredibly beautiful shots!!

    Question for all you folks who use SLR cameras from a gal who is learning how to use hers: without using a light meter, what is the best way to determine what f-stop and shutter speed to use? I can't seem to get the right settings in any circumstance. I kind of feel spoiled with a DSLR since I can immediately see how it looks, but with SLR that's obviously not the case.:P

    @JonCarpenter: Fantastic shots.

    @Oldhat: You can use sunny 16 rule, but I found that with time you can approximate the settings based on your own experiences. Also, film (specially BW) is very forgiving and has a rather robust dynamic range, so even if you dont get the spot on exposure, you can probably fix it in post.
