Default Ice

While the folks over at the Olympus dslr forum are posting their incredible images from warm sunny locations, I thought some shots of the results from our most recent snowfall would be in order. This is the ice forming on our downspout chains.
Mounted the camera on my tripod, turned off the IS, manual focus and exposure and moved in as close as I could with the kit lens. Getting good focus was difficult through the lcd so I'm going to order the electronic viewfinder...

good images. I hope I don't come back to any that ice when we get home, though.

By the way, the VF-2, while expensive, is an amazing performer. You'll love it.

Nah, it's a balmy 52 right now Boston!

Actually, that's as warm as it is here in Dallas right now. I just went out for lunch and it's quite cool. By Sunday it's supposed to be almosy 90, but not today!

Kula, you'll love the VF-2. Makes everything from viewing in all types of light to manually focusing extremely easy.

We are on a bit of a heat wave here too, hitting 41 as our high. A lot of the snow from last Thursday is gone. The ice on the chains is now gone.

Looking forward to the VF-2. Finally decided to take the plunge after the session shooting the ice, more shots than I would have liked where I did not get the focus bang on. Really checking the depth of field off the lcd in bright light is just too tough.

Am taking advantage of a 20 percent discount that I received by completing a survey for Olympus, so with shipping and taxes, I got it for list price ($240 CDN).
