Default K7 standing up to winter conditions

Hi gang. -7 degrees fahrenheit, was out as long as I could possible stand it... but here is a photo taken with my K7 at 11:00 a.m.

If it looks a little blurred... blame me... I freezing and could hardly take any pictures... I was using gloves to just get this ... Hope the photo is ok. Oh, which photo do think is better. The second photo was processed with Topaz InFocus All of the trees have frost and snow on them... just to let you know.

Ned

Great picture, guess I'll have to wait 2 days before it gets white where I am.

We do already have incredible low temp forcasts of -7°C ,

(thats real low for over here - compared to your -22°C)

Great photo Ned. If it's blurry at all, I can't see it on my monitor.

The trees don't look blurry at all - love the scene and thanks for posting it, makes me want to see some more snow (it's not in the forecast though). I'm sure we'll see more than I want to see by the end of winter (or maybe not).

Many thanks mtnman and mtngal! Mtnman, the snow in the foreground seemed blurry... If it wasn't so cold (-6 F) and if I had not been out so long already, I would have really taken my time. Many thanks to you both. Harriet, we are in for a bad winter they say... last summer was the hottest in Finland for a 100 years... they say that this winter is going to be a tough one... so far, we have had snow cover and freezing temperatures for all of November. All the best.

If you folks would be ever so kind, could you look at the photo again, which is compared with a second photo slightly cropped differently, processed with Topaz InFocus, and Risized via PhotoShop Elements. I would appreciate any feedback, I just want to get my Winter photos right... Thanks. Ned
