Greetings from western NY

Hello all!

I've been a Pentax shooter for about 3 years now, mostly with an *ist DS. I've recently acquired a K10D and I am learning how to use it.

Lately I've been struggling with my inspiration and motivation. I've been more interested in skiing with all this snow we're having.

Anyone got any tips for getting out of the winter doldrums?

Ah the age old question. Our version of writers block. Take a break from it, spend some time studying other types of art (not photography). Maybe get out the macro lens and do some stuff in the kitchen or some still life shots.

Nice to see all the Upstate natives! I grew up in Vernon, about 45 minutes east of Syracuse and 1 hour west of Albany. And thirdcoast, I still have some relatives near you in Phelps. I do miss the snow!! If you ever get the chance, go to the Adirondacks and ski Gore Mountain... that is if it's still there. It was a great place to ski back in the day! Enjoy!
