Snow Day in Mississippi
Lens: Sigma 50mm Macro, Pentax-A 35-105mm Camera: K-5 ISO: 50

So I just received my K-5 not too long ago. It was on eBay and labeled "AS IS" and I made a bid and won it for under $150. It was a big gamble as it did not come with any accessories and it was untested (just a note saying "dust located behind screen", but it turned out to be worth it! Great upgrade from my K-7. Anyway, here are some shots on a rare snow day in Mississippi. Let me know what you all think.

Haha. Yeah it started off as a low bid! Yeah I think we ended up getting 5-6 inches, but you are right, it was all gone the next day.

Ya, we still have the 5 or 6 inches that fell in December on the ground, plus another couple of feet on top of it. But for 12 hours, you had us beat, at least for snow fall one day.

I'm jealous. I still have my K-7, but wish I could get a K-5 or 3 - especially for $150! I'm also jealous that amount of snow is considered a snow day. :-) We get about 14 feet a year here. There hasn't been more snow than usual this year, but the temperatures have been bitter cold and we've set a bunch of records there. The south sounds pretty good when it's -41 degrees below zero wind chill. here's our average year:
