Finally got out after a spell of being stuck indoors. Froze my butt off, but didn't come away empty handed



This one is one which I accidentally deleted . Fortunately, there was some freeware to recover it

Love the 2nd shot

Long time no see, Andrew.

Both are very nice; I prefer the 2nd one than the first.

The shadows of the trees are parallel to the each other. This pattern is superimposed on top of arrays of vertical trees, interlacing each other. The lighting is not harsh with a touch of sepia.

Great shots

That is great. The second photo with the shadows really did it for me. Roentarre said it well. For me it almost have a 3D feel to it.

Cheers

Thanks for the comments, James, Eddie & Quaffle.

I think the second one will be printed and hung on the wall a little later today. It was worth the effort recovering that shot

James,

Haven't been on too much as work's been a bit busier and my home computer's been acting up a fair bit (which got remedied this morning when I backed up my images and wiped the drive, LOL!).

I should be on a bit more, now that things are running smoother.

I was about to ask that question - in order to respond to a poster in the DSLR Discussions...how cold was it when you took these? LOL.

It was about -8 celcius. The camera held up just fine, but I will say this about the batteries - cold weather does them in pretty quickly. I'd say both batteries were at about 75% full when I went out and after 2 hours and about 100 shots, both were depleted....that is, util they warmed up. The lithium AA's that I used with my DS2 were a lot more reliable in cold weather.

Been trying to get a shot like that second one for some time. Never in the right place when the sun is low or even out. I like it.

Andrew,
that second shot is really nice! I would say it deserves a place on the wall. Thanks for sharing it with us.
