It's too cold to be outside now.  It was -30C/-20F and now, here (warmer since I live on lakefront) it's about -4F and this is a shot of the sunset.  We're expecting a big snowstorm through tomorrow or the next day...  It's cold.  The lake is half frozen over and instead of slowly growing from shore, I woke up and the lake looked like it does now.  Tomorrow it may be the earliest it's ever frozen over.  It's cold.  Couple guys went ice fishing in the bay and the ice sunk, cracked and they got their feet wet from the "overflow".

The other direction a little earlier (Southeast).   You can see the ice and the open water in the pic.  The wind has caused the waves and they've broken the ice edge back a little ways farther during the sunshine and 22F of the day today.

Those are great Ken!  "Sunset mode"?  You bought an Olympus point and shoot?   :headscratch:

I was told to "come plow the road" cause we're expecting 3' of snow tonight.  Sunshine right now!

Hey Ted, nope, I bought a Nikon D5100. It has M Pixel and a lot of features that my Panasonic Lumix FX10 and Nikon D50 did not have.  Just still trying to get it all figured out. My Circular Polarizing Filter just came in the mail yesterday so I should be able to get even more dramatic cloud shots....

A CP filter for cloud pics?  I have to use a ND filter for bright sun and snow pics.  Bought MC, ND and CP filters, but haven't used the CP yet.  Bought it to get rid of the light reflecting off the dash/windshield into the lens and washing out pics sometimes.

The CP will enhance the contrast between the clouds and the sky as well as bring out the detail in the clouds.  You can rotate the filter to maximize the effects.

 :headscratch:  Hmmm, the descriptions said that it prevented side light from entering the lens causing "ghosts" and white clouds in your pics.  They mostly mentioned shooting pics on water and snow.  I figured that the reflections inside my lens were ruining about 45% of my 'shooting though the windshield' pics.  My Sigma lens being a 72mm I figured that the extra thickness was helping collect reflections.  My Canon lens also got a lot of ghosts and 'whiteouts'.

A contrast increase?  Once I replace my lens I'll try using it.

Sunrise this morning on highway 20.  About 0F.  Looks like sleddin' time.



and ... on the Lower Dean road ...



Taken with my (4sale) Olympus Point and Shoot  DSLR is too large to fit in lunch box and too valuable to pack around at work.

It will certainly help with all of that too. Just like you can use polarized sun glasses to look through the surface reflection of the water to see the fish below.

Take a look at this link from Tiffen for examples. Yes it does work. It is almost like magic.

Yep, I'll have to try one.  I bought the 3 most common/popular filters.  Multi Coated (UV filter), Neutral Density (for sunshine and snow) and the Circular Polarizer.  Sunrise this morning ...



Then I took a load of Salt dow the deadly Bella Coola Hill.  Tow Truck driver went past bragging that he "saved 2 damsels in distress".  By the time I got back to Anahim Lake I'd shovelled out a Nimpo (woman) resident's Explorer's front so that her husband could climb in the ditch to hook his winch cable to the bottom of her SUV.  I sanded the entire Hill as I climbed up it (27kms) and stopped at Green River to fill out my Road/Temp report and a woman stopped beside me.  "Are you smarter than me?" she asked.  I can't figure out how to undo the inside of my tire chains and I'm dragging them under my car she indicated.  So I climbed under her SUV and unhooked her tire chains for her.  So, I also saved 2 "damsel's in distress.  That make 3 women that drove into the ditch on the Hill (at least they didn't go over the Cliff side) and one that didn't understand how to unhook her tire chains ... 

Here's the Hill, even though you can't see how steep it is from the pic...



Can you see that this HIGHWAY is only 9' wide in a few spots?  1 lane for much of the long steep Hill.  It gets really dangerous when it becomes glare ice.  It has mud and snow slides on it and often gets closed when it gets too much snow.  Sometimes WE have to plow down the Hill because the Trucks can't plow UP the Hill as it's too steep.  Reminds me of Peru.  There's a book and a DVD on this piece of Highway.

The wife woke up and when she looked out the patio doors she grabbed my Canon and shot this shot of the Mtns and the pink tinged clouds through the mist.
