Well, I guess winter is here.  Good thing we got the leaves raked up yesterday.  Not a photographic masterpiece; just a sign of things to come.  If you don't get snow...enjoy; for the rest of us, it's time to break out the shovels and make sure the blower runs.

Jonny, as some years we get no snow at all I like your image and find it soothing, which if I lived in an area where I regularly had to shovel snow, I might think differently..(-:

geedee, thanks for the reminder. It is a nice photo, but it suffers from blue snow. There is a way to fix that in PP, but it escapes me right now. I'm sure somebody here has a better memory than me :wacko:  I also think you can prevent that in camera by setting your white balance to something other than auto.


Jonny, sorry to hear about those two deaths. Unfortunately, common sense is not a common trait.

Thanks RDB - I didn't even check it, but I reckon blue snow is better than yellow snow  :huh:  .

 

Mark - those were 25-foot waves, and 90 mph winds were recorded.  The winds of November came early. 

 

Gedee - it is what it is.  I think I'll miss a lot of it by being in China, but you get used to it.

Sorry Bob, though if it is any comfort I have shovelled a few tons of stuff much heavier than snow. There were similar gales across parts of the UK and Ireland a couple of weeks back and in one news report there was a guy swimming in the sea and in the teeth of the gale.....I guess some revel in a measure of educated risk taking at times, and others just do not understand the risks they take.

That was in Marquette. I live over in the Sault. It was pretty nasty out that day, but we didn't get hit nearly as hard over here on the east side. You can see some of my pics I took over at Rotary park downtown on the St. Mary's river. It flooded pretty good and was super windy and cold and rainy of course. http://eupphotograph...st-marys-river/

Nice shots Peter - the Pentax yields some very nice colors, and the images have a nice feel to them (not the storm, but the images - color, depth, tone etc.)  I am new to this area and enjoy it very much.  We bought a camp in 2013, and didn't last much longer below the bridge.  Welcome to the forum!

As Conrad said,

The sea — this truth must be confessed — has no generosity. No display of manly qualities — courage, hardihood, endurance, faithfulness — has ever been known to touch its irresponsible consciousness of power.

And in "An Outcast Of The islands":

It's only those who do nothing that make no mistakes, I suppose.

 

A sad one, Jonny.
