Community Photo Sharing Thread

Welcome to the Obsidian Community Photo Sharing thread!

 

Start of previous thread.

 

A combination of "pics of yourself" and other photo topics common to many forums. If you feel comfortable sharing pics of yourself, this is the place. But if that isn't your thing, pics of your pets, your backyard garden project, vacation or that awesome sunset/nature/other photo you captured etc. can go here too. It's not the place to share funny internet memes, as we already have a thread for stuff like that.

-----------------------------------

The most recent pics from the last thread, repeated here:

 

Wild goose. They were huge and looked really tasty. Also I wonder if that specimen with the black head was the only male in that group?

Very still water at dawn. (for some reason this pic lost a lot of quality when I uploaded it)

Woldan, you should freelance for National Geographic. Your pictures aren't just beautiful, they're art.

Thank you, Meshugger, but whenever I see the photos of a true professional I feel completely inadequate. There is much room for improvement.

Got a Canon DSLR camera not too long ago...what follows is a random collection of my attempts to teach myself (a complete newbie) the basics of photography:

This is what I look like if my ride forgot to pick me up at the airport and I've been traveling for 24 hours straight already:

I may look half-dead, but I'm SPIRITUALLY ALIVE.

Testing my new Fujifilm XM-1 with my 16-50 objective. Downsizing and uploading kind of botched the quality, especially the color transitions, happens sometimes, but its still nice I think.

That's a big sunshade on the silver/black one. :)

Its especially helpful in the mountains as the sun reflecting from the rocks can produce a lot of unwanted close proximity light sources making the picture appear hazy. If you want to have a much smaller shade you can get a honeycomb filter. People also use them on rifle scopes.

I don't have any gorgeous nature shots to share, but I was doing the photo album thing again, and ... uh ... guys? Remind me to never get a perm ever ever again. Friggin' 80's...

I think it's time to bring the perm back

I think most other teen girls of that era would agree with me when I say ... no. :biggrin:

Me too. See the three peaks on the left? Its the Dachstein, the three peaks are called Torstein, Mitterspitz and Hoher Dachstein. Been there countless times climbing. I see it every day and every time I wish I could be there right now, climbing. So close yet so far away; but summer will come eventually.

 

But Sweden has wonderful locations too. I love those birch forests, especially in autumn.

Yes, true, there are some magnificient places here in Sweden, some very pretty views. There's mostly fir around where I am, but there are some patches where there is hardwood and you can walk under autumn leaves and enjoy yourself. But none of that is quite as majestic as those mountains. 

 

Though I am pretty certain that if I tried to actually climb any of those peaks it'd be the death of me. ^^

I got a serious case of cabin fever going.  The reason:

That's what Connecticut has looked like for a month straight.  Everything is buried under snow, below average (way below average in most cases) temperatures every day.  Next week looks just as bad, way below average temps the whole week, more snow on Tuesday, maybe more snow on Friday.  Tomorrow morning I get to wait for the bus in -5° F temps with 15 mph winds.  This is my 27th Connecticut winter and I can confidently say this is easily in the top 3 worst winters I've been through here.  April can't possibly come soon enough.  :verymad:

California does have it's perks, sometimes. Although I expect it to be rainy and mildly chilly a few more times before true Spring.

Try to see the good in everything, the harder the winter the more you're going to enjoy summer. Nothing makes summer suck more than a warm, muddy winter. 

False.  There is no correlation between the harshness of winter and my enjoyment of summer.  It's a nice thought, but it's untrue.
