Great job, Joe

Nothing original, but I'm always fascinated when I've sliced open a head of red cabbage.....

D90 and Sigma 150-500 @ 500mm - 1/640 @ f11 - ISO 800

This, as most of my photographs have been and will be, was actually shot yesterday since Saturday is my normal day for getting out and walking in the woods when it isn't raining.

Joe has nothing to fear from this bird shot since it doesn't compare to his, but I was thrilled to get this one. Blue Herons are very shy and normally take to their wings when a human is first seen. This one was the exception to the rule and wasn't very concerned about my watching him. He was on the shore of a lake about 82' away from me and I was just inside the woods where I wasn't highly visible. He saw me but as long as I stayed in the woods he seemed to be content with the situation.

A mix of jackdaws and rooks as far as I could see and hear - they gather in large noisy colonies in the twilight close to where I live.

Changed my mind - some tree graphics against the sky in stead.

Scott.... that is a absolutely beautiful shot..nice lighting, detail, exposure, and composition..... I knew you had it in you..... I just didn't know that "Bigma' (150-500) had it in her.

Very nice my friend.

Cheers, Joe

Thanks, Joe! After seeing your bird shots that means a great deal and I appreciate it. That's the closest I've ever gotten to a Blue Heron and as I walked off I made sure to thank him for posing for me.

I've had that lens about a month and I really like it. It's pretty slow and after carrying it around for a few hours it gets heavy but the more I use it the more I like it.

Spring has sprung - a nice contrast to the snow and fallen leaves posted by those in the northern hemisphere.

Sunday I went up to the mountains to photograph a favorite swimming hole from college days. Today was a bit less fun. Seconds after this shot I wanted to move over a bit to get a different perspective. Note the white rock. Unknown to me, the rock several feet ahead of me (unlike the rock under my feet) was covered with a solid coat of clear and nearly invisible ice. I quickly got a much closer view of the ice covered rock. I did not lose my grip on the tripod and mounted camera. My black and blue and swollen fingers on my left hand are testament to this. Slipping on ice leaves no time to plan your landing or, unfortunately, your equipment. I suffered little, except my D700 no longer has a functioning mirror. As I sent it off to Nikon today, any photos for the foreseeable future will need to be made some other way. At least the kind owner of a local photo store loaned me a D200 for a project I was planning on doing this next weekend. It could be worse. Oh wait, it will when I find out how much this will cost. Sigh.

The centre of Oslo. Yes, that's right, this small lake called Svartkulp (Black pond) is very close to the geographic centre (midpoint) of Oslo Posted Image
A thin ice sheet was covering parts of the lake today.

There is such wonderful work shown in the PaW Challenge threads !!

I've fallen by the wayside. Seems I just couldn't keep up with everything - mentoring an active forum, writing tutorials, going on shoots, planning shooting trips, editing and processing the backlog of shots, serving on PoTW committee - not to mention the various social activities & duties and housekeeping chores that require my time.

So carry on everyone !! I'm pulling for you to make it all the way through the year. :party:

So why not just post a picture everytime you can? It doesn't matter to me if you miss a week or five. It is much more annoying to see you permanently out than occasionally in.
