@gaweidert It is maybe just me but the white balance is off. Too much bluish tone in the pictures...

It may be, but the ice itself is a bluish/green. Plus the day was cloudy. Unfortunately I really wanted to go the day before when we had crystal clear skies and bright sunshine but my wife had other commitments and she wanted to go too. Still in all, it was a good day, just not a great day for these types of shots.

We had a pretty late (for us) winter snow storm. Just got six inches of the fluffy stuff and have to dig out this morning, but it was really coming down last evening. Snapped a few on my way home from work.







(hopefully it makes all of you who live in tropical climates add an extra ice cube to your drink this evening in sympathy)...

Coldest winter in history up here, average of minus 15.4 in February (-15,4 C, or a bit above 4 farheineits)...Let's have a drink together!

First two shots are from a George Benson concert in Honolulu a couple of nights ago, shot with the 18-135 WR at ISO 1600 f/4.5 and ISO 6400 f/3.5 respectively, and the third is from a big day at Waimea bay a couple of months ago, shot with a $39, 40-year-old no-name 400mm manual lens with which I had some focusing and depth of field adventures but with which I am also irrationally pleased.

Moon Set (with 50-135).



I should have used a tripod, but I was in a hurry and so iso went up a little bit on the high side...

Had a Scotch on your behalf, hope it helps. I especially like the third shot.

About 50 (80 Km) miles from my house is a park called Letchworth State Park. It is a beautiful place with waterfalls and a gorge. It was carved by the Genesee River at the end of the last Ice Age when glacial debris blocked the old channel. In the second half of the 19th century some people were going to develop the place as an industrial site using the water as power source.


A Buffalo industrialist named William Letchworth used to visit the area often and decided to take action. He purchased all the land around the waterfalls and built himself a "summer house" and named it The Glen Iris. At his death he willed thousands of acres and the house to the state of New York for use as a park. The house still serves and an inn and restaurant. There is a fountain that shoots a stream of water 50 feet (16 meters) into the air. They leave it running year round.

This past winter has been one for the record books as we just had the coldest month ever recorded since 1830 when records were kept in this area. So the fountain is now about 45 feet (15 meters) tall. My wife and I decided to go take a look. This is my K3 and a Sigma 17-70mm lens. The temperature was 28F (-3C) when we were there. The auto focus on the Sigma essentially stopped working in the cold so I switched to manual focus.

The "Ice Volcano" has received worldwide attention. The BBC actually sent a crew to film it.

3 shots here. One of the "Ice Volcano". Another one of he Middle Falls only a few hundred meters away and one from an overlook called Inspiration Point looking up the rive towards the middle and upper falls.

Because of the snow pack and ice, you could not get too close to the falls for safety reasons.


I particularly like the river shot, really well-composed.

You just expose for it. I had to raise the exposure of the foreground considerably, which wasn't great, because I was at iso 800 already and so the photo is kind of noisy.

the moon is very bright so my settings were 1/200 second, iso 800 and f6.3. Shooting the moon, I will often shoot manually and play with my exposure until I get it with enough detail.
