Taken after the contest was set - so it counts. Although, is there really a "winter" at the equator?



But since I'm back now, I probably could have done something more on topic. If it makes anyone feel better, I had to scrape my car off in -7 with my shorts on.

That one was at Keystone. I don't remember the other one you speak of. The sunset was off my patio over the Allegheny.

Doug can't see your pic.

Jesse - sweet.

Snorvich - LOL, unreal, and I bet someone has bought some! The state of Alaska needs a few million tons. They've already canceled some dog races and move the Iditarod start even North of Fairbanks. The skiing and winter biking trails are horrendous.

On a positive note there was some Aurora last night. Not sure if my focus was off a tad or if the light breeze was moving the branches. Nothing spectacular, but it is recent photo I took in line with the theme

How often do you get to see these in your typical winter? They are so cool.

Thanks. Hm, not sure how often actually. North of here in Fairbanks its quite common. Probably most nights of the year when it's dark enough. That pic I posted, is a fair display. When it's really rocking it can be almost unbelievable.

The Aurora is most active at the fall and spring equinox for reasons not understood. Of course it needs to be dark to see them so we can't see them at all in the summer. If I had to guess I'd say they would be visible probably at least once a week. I don't know though. Usually they are the most active around midnight or later and then again in the 4 am to 6 am range. So, having a "real" day job the activity needs to really be up for me to go out on a work night. They can be as subtle as a dull pulses in the sky to as intense as huge curtains raging overhead like a tepee of light coming down on you. All depends on the suns activity, and weather. They are actually quite active in general but too often when the sun activity is up the clouds roll in and we miss the show. Such is life.

Ok, I haven't been following along all the time. Has the topic "back lighting" been done?

Hm, for some reason i think "back lighting" has been done. That is still my first choice, but if it was done already then my backup topic would be "toys".

Very pretty drive to work today - cell phone pic doesn't do it justice. Always liked the "morning after snow" drives...

Nice Joey!!!!

OK, since Louis can't pick just one, how about everyone back-lighting one of their toys.

, I just thought back lighting had been done already. Doesn't matter to me though. Backlit toys sounds good.

Bought my daughter a D7100 last week - today she had a snow day from school...so she's been sending me a ton of pictures.

Fortunately, my puppy loves the snow, so it gives her a shooting topic.



This one's a tad out of focus (looks good on the phone though) - something I'm not sure a 2.8 lens could pic up quick enough for the action shot. For the most part, she shoots everything in full manual mode, only with the RAW file, and tries to manual focus on still subjects. She's learning...probably getting better than me.

If she's setting her exposure manually, the snow should be a +1.5 - +2 when metering. It looks like she's just dialing the exposure to the center of the meter (which is why the snow is grey)

HAHA... Yeah... Onetime it was supposed to have bad weather so I set it up and went to work. I saw my kids and their friends back and forth. I asked what happened with taking the trash out, 'Ohh we stayed inside all day'. HAHAHAHA
