    Snow

    Well - I couldn't find a suitable thread for this! and I am sure there are LOADS of fantastic snow scenes and images out there!!!
    Here are just 2 images from around 77 I took the other day for my daughter.
    She had friends around and they wrecked the snow in the back garden...
    I was very happy with the results, though most of them would not be interesting for anyone other than my daughter and her friends!!!
    I used my Sigma 17 - 70, in centre weighted mode with small exposure +0.3 or +0.7ev - I also used Manual focus as I found I was faster that way than in auto focus - set the lens between F5.6 and F8 which is its sweet spot, ISO 250 so I got my shutter speeds around 160 most of the time
    Sorry - to much info....



    At the end - let's all get the photographer!!!

    The day the snow came

    The day the snow came - this is what I saw when I looked out of my bathroom window.
    I really wish I had more time to go out and grab some 'cool' images and everywhere looks fantastic!
    Hopefully some of you guys out there will add some.....?

    That first one is great Geoff. Too bad there's a snow flake in front of the snow ball thrower's face. The group shot is very nice as well.

    Where's the Panorama thread gone??

    I wanted to post this in the panorama thread - but it appearsa to have fallen off the end and disappeared -
    a pity - I liked that thread (*not just because I started it!)
    This is a panorama of our snowy garden before the kids desicrated it!
    (The bluer colouration towards the left is not a stitching error but a WB issue
    where the colour in the more shaded part is bluer due to the house shade)

    Have a look now Geoff you should find the Pano thread. Shame I didn't have a shot to post. Our garden got trashed too but more snow on the way. Maybe I'll get there first this time.

    I don't know where it went - maybe it's my eyes - but I looked for ages!

    Great photos!

    All this wacky weather of the cold kind makes you wonder if scientists got their modeling and simulation algorithms inverted somehow. Significant snow in England, ice storms and extreme cold in the US,...

    After 22 years of experiencing Colorado snows, I still enjoy the beauty of fresh snow. Since it melts quickly here at high altitude, it rapidly disappears.

    I thought it strange that there is no snow thread but I guess I wouldn't have noticed in recent years as snow here in East Sussex has been a rare occurrence.

    However this week we had by our standards a shedload i.e. about 6 inches so the country ground to a halt and I got to take some pictures in a local wood on my way to work(yes I did get to work!).

    This one is early on tuesday morning its stopped snowing but its all still fresh and the sun is just coming through.

    Snow scene at home

    Snowy night out of our bedroom window. Bit of a long exposure this one balanced on top of an old shoe box as I couldn't get the tripod in position close enough to the window.
