Default First snow (didn't last long thankfully)

I still use the K20D as my primary camera, and here are my latest shots.

Great photos Ira. We got a few inches here in Vermont as well, which are mostly gone. But I really feel for those people along the mid-Atlantic coast and southern New England who have not yet recovered from super-storm Sandy, and now have taken the brunt of this nor'easter.

By the way, I imagine it must be nice for you to see daylight at this time of year. I suspect for the last couple of years you didn't see much of the sun in November and December!

It is pretty dark right now in Tuktoyaktuk, just a little light around midday I would expect. Temperatures have stayed below freezing there since late September, nice to be home. All of this snow was gone by the afternoon.

I haven't posted here much lately, had to get the micro 4/3 thing out of my system, it has now been relegated to its proper role as a street and party camera. I shot a major convention in October using my Pentax gear but since it was a paying gig I did not post any pictures here (got some interesting shots of our provincial premier). I sent two items to Pentax Canada for possible repair, an FAJ 75-300mm which will not communicate with the camera body, and my old DL which now shows horizontal lines on images shot at higher ISO. I am hoping that the repair estimate will be reasonable, I like the old DL and the FAJ is not a great lens but it is the only 300mm I have right now.

I once quoted the old "horses for courses" line here and with the Olympus and the Pentax I really do have a great range covered now. I still have some great old first-series Maxxum glass from Minolta so someday I may get my hands on a SONY DSLR so that I can make use of the great 70-210mm f4 and the 50mm f2.8 1:1 macro. My photo club has a majority of Canon and Nikon users and a number of full frame members, then there is the misfit group, three Pentaxes, a SONY and an Olympus (we tend to sit together for support)

So I hope to post more often in future, get back into the fold so-to-speak.

Love the last picture, looks like a postcard. We're having our first snow of the season, but I'm not going to get an opportunity to photograph it. I'll just enjoy yours.

Glad to have you back, I'm with ntngal on the last image. The first snow shots are always fun. As for snow none here in lower Michigan yet but we were in NC visiting the grand kids the last weekend of Oct and had Sandy chasing us home thru Virginia and West Virginia with snow through the mountains. We managed to stay about an hour ahead of it and only had to deal with about an 1/4 inch.

Glad to see some of your fine photos again, and glad that the snow did not persist very long.
