Mark,
Looks like it's time to put that hammock away. :-/ :-/

I put ours and the picnic table umbrella away six weeks ago ;D and my fire wood is all in (thanks to the wife and a neighborhood kid) :D :D

Winter is just around the corner for us.  Snow should be up around the back pockets to my belt in no time.  :D :D :D

Mark,

WOW those are some very unique pictures, I have never seen anything like that here in the Mid-Atlantic. I'm not sure which are more fascinating the trees or the spider webs, I can't imagine how cold it must have been to produce those results!!!! Right now it is about 40F here with a pretty good NW wind, so the heat isn't staying too long in the house.

Do you mind me asking what type of digital camera you used to shoot those pictures? The contrast of the sky and the white frost were great to say the least. I was also fascinated by the ones you had of Briden-Roen sawmill very neat step back in time.

Hi Mike

Well the temp was in the upper 20's or so but we had a heavy fog. It doesn't happen too often but when it does it's really a treat. My daughter came in as said "our house is covered in spider webs, we need to go clean them off!"

The camera is a Canon EOS-1D. It is almost identical to my 35mm film bodies and uses interchangeable lenses. I think it is around 4 megapixels. The neat thing about it is it can take 9 frames a second so for sports or action it can't be beat. I went to an ice skating show a couple years ago and took 1200 pictures in 2 hours. A lot were mediocre but I got 50-100 that we as good as you see in the magazines IMHO. On the website where the pictures are you can click on "full exif" and it will show all the camera settings.

Thanks

Mark

Here is one I took a couple of winters ago. Wish I knew how to paint as this would make a nice painting.
