Default Snowshoeing

My son and I went snowshoeing on the weekend after receiving my snowshoes last Friday, before the big storm.

Taken with the E-620 with 14-42mm kit lens, aperture set at f8.









It took us almost two hours to do the loop as we were making our own path. The next day, it took us 45 minutes! LOL

Good captures of a beautiful snowfall. Obviously the E-620 stood up to the cold temps.

Just what I was thinking as I looked at these.

Beautiful conditions, although I am glad they are THERE, not here...

I had it in my Slingshot on my back and took it out when needed. When I got home, I put it into a plastic ziplock and left it for a while.

I think it was like -25C windchill that day, but in the woods like this, the wind was far from being a factor... until you got out of the woods.

Really nice shots Dan. Always nice to see "Other peoples" snow shots these days. In one lifetime I lived at 7,000 ft and actually liked to go out in that.

Well done.

Thanks! I will get to shovel more as 20-30cm are coming my way tomorrow. Nice powder for the weekend to go snowshoeing in though!

Default Wooohooo! Here we go in the Mid-Atlantic US

Don't mean to jack your thread, Dan, but here's the beginning of a 10" (25cm) dump today in the next 6 hours in Maryland, US.
