Hope everyone had a Happy Holiday and Happy New Year too! I'm getting in early since I probably won't get back on until next year. :)

Great photos everyone, I especially like the Valley of the Butterflies Pablo, that's a beautiful shot of a fantastic location.

I'll have a few more of these to post in a bit and Mike should have some as well. We did a sunrise shoot with San Francisco as the backdrop this cold cold morning (ok so it's not like Canada cold but it's still cold).

Just a technical note about this shot. This was shot on my K3 with the new HD 55-300 lens. I'm astonished about this as it what the camera metered, and very little post processing was done on this shot (which was a jpeg from the camera and not derived from a raw file). Apparently the new HD coating kept the flaring down more that I've seen before. I'm very impressed.

Amazing! It's all about the light. You nailed it Tim.
(I'm not even tempted to laugh about your cold, cold morning. Not even a little. :whistle: )

Hi Kids
Sorry about the prolonged absence but have just been overwhelmed for months and really haven't picked up the camera for anything fun.
I have been keeping an eye on your posts

@ Jimbo- absolutely love the fog rising shot.

thanks guys. Here is a technical note that perhaps only someone in this forum may find interesting:
As I knew I would be shooting this as a mono image, I used my red headlamp to light paint the foreground (rock and straws). Then, in post, I would have a little more control over the levels of the foreground by using my RED channel. I was able to dial it in without affecting the rest of the image.

Yay! I took photos! I don't get to do that much these days, beyond the daily photo of my daughter.

I was just wandering around our yard, but it was a relief to be wielding my camera again all the same.

Building on your FaceBook post I see! :cool: Well, these say winter with a big W! Love the basketball one in particular. Good to see you post here FP!

Unfortunately I think spring is starting to happen here in Northern California.

I'm shooting this month with my new to me Helios 44-2 USSR 1985 58mm f2 lens. I'm trying to track down the elusive swirly bokeh this lens is capable of. Getting close but I'm having focus issues with it. Should be sitting down when you view this one.

True but we enjoy it too. Here is one from this afternoon. February is Yellow, Green, and Blue month for me.
