Default Proactive Winter Pics

I say proactive because I've kept saying that I should take pics at whatever site here, whatever site there. So, this week I grabbed the camera and headed out instead of talking about it.

These were taken with my E-620, 14-42mm kit lens. All of them on Aperture priority @ f8 and ISO100-200

First set, early morning (too early I think) a mere kilometer from my house:









Second set, mid-day, a few kilometers from my house:

Although I detest snow, I must confess to the landscape becoming almost magically photogenic. I really like 1, 3, and 5. Just goes to show how good the kit 14-42mm really is in the right hands.

Hi Tek,

Nothing like the cleansing that snow adds to the landscape when it's just fallen.
In no time at all it becomes dirty and dingy and a cold reminder that winter has yet to arrive.

But, I can enjoy looking at your photos - just hafta turn the heat up here in my office, a bit, as all of a sudden I'm a little cold.


By the way, have you been able to determine what the problem is with your camera?

I just tried it around the house and it was fine. I wonder if it has anything to do with cold temperatures? It was happening when I was out shooting these pics...

I'm not a tech so don't know if cold temperatures might, in fact, be the culprit.
All I know is, I don't work well in cold temperatures at all.

If i can be serious for a second, one thing I do know for sure is that cold temperatures do a job on the batteries. I'm wondering if the battery might not have actually contributed to a lack of response on the part of the lens.

Now those are really nice shots. It's nice to be able to sit inside a warm office and look at them and admire their natural beauty.

(Just as long as I'm not the one outside in the cold. LOL)
