I went to talk to the owner of the local bike shop while I was at the market Wednesday so I grabbed a shot for Monty. AND to my surprise saw what was coming across the street, oh boy!

Leighton, do you all actually get winter? Before you answer, consider the following:

What is your lowest temperature that time of year? We've been known to get as low as -40c before factoring in the wind chill. With the wind chill, you're looking at -60c ish. Brr.

That's -76f btw.

Now, do you ACTUALLY get winter all the way down ther

A day with one of North America's most magnificent bird the bald eagle. This is probably one of the best sites on the east coast on the Susquehanna river. I counted at least 20 juvenile eagles and twice that many adults. We felt very much out of place here as you can glean from the one picture. I counted no less than a half dozen Canon 800mm's and a ton of Nikon 600's. As I told my wife I think we brought our knife to the gun fight. First 2 shots of the crowd and my wife(50 1.2 AI) and then a couple birds. She took the almost perfect in flight shot with the 400 3.5 and like I told her I am sure I could not have done any better. The last shot was as we were leaving. We saw about 20 Lenses pointed up in a tree so I took the 50 1.2 off my camera and stuck the 300mm 4.5 on it and grabbed a shot.

Believe it or not yes. Just three years ago we had 3 snowstorms over 12" each. One of them was over 2 feet! But I don't believe we get those kind of temperatures, Brrrrrrr.

I wish we could just get snow, and skip the massive negative temps.

I try not to slow down during the winter, there are still places to make photographs. I do shoot outdoors, my wife thinks I am crazy.

Ron, nice story and a great capture, especially the last one!

Philippe - I love the second one, why does it look like the Jag's front end is on the ground?

Tell her it's all about being a photographer. We're a crazy bunch.

I grew up in Newfoundland so I'm used to wind and snow, but not real cold. I find Toronto too cold even, the few times it hits -25 or so with the WC is too much for me. I lived in Vancouver for three years, and found those winters very agreeable.

That seems to be the way the Jag's engine hood is opened

Dylan - of course he gets winter. Winter in Sydney is 12 - 13c (daytime temperatures). If it drops to , say, 9 - 10c we stay inside, we're not geared for that cold (of course it drops lower at night to, say 6 - 8 c)....I guess it's like Southern California. -40c?? I'd emigrate!!...lol

Phillippe, oh Phillippe, that second Jaguar shot!!! wow!! I'm amazed the people on the far right of the pic weren't staring at you, you must have been crouched down virtually on the ground and right up against the grill!! beautiful PP too.

Ron, thanks for sharing your birding-adventure! The bald eagle looks really majestic.
The nature-photographers over here - a similar long-lens-crowd - are in the crane-fever right now.
Up to 40.000 cranes are stopping by here to bolster up for the trip to the southern winter habitat.

Philippe, cool point of view at the Jaguar-shots. In my very first own photo-teaching-book (for kids) a low point of view was called "Frosch-Perspektive" - frog-perspective. Just like you I still "do the frog" from time to time :-)

Here's a staged portrait of a young violin player - taken for a local paper. This time I've set up two speedlights - one SB800 at about 1/16 or 1/32 power in a small softbox high and left of my camera and another SB800 (bounced to the ceiling, at about 1/4 or 1/8 power) on a small lightstand behind the girl. I'd choose some colorful lockers as background because I've tried to avoid a concert-hall-look. The cut-off forearm bugs me a bit.

Tony, excellent panos with the 105/1.8;

Rolf, great set with the 135/2, I liked the colours; glad to see this lens performs very well in the D800;

Samy, liked the "solar filter" and the bokeh;

Philippe, that second Jaguar shot with people behind is awesome!
