Had a lovely time in the snow in Derbyshire on Sunday morning (the snow in Birmingham today I could do without to be honest, as I'm commuting to Leamington )

Anyway, Sunday:

Nice shot Glyn, I suspect we may see a glut of these from this area given the weather tonight

Here is one I took about an hour or so ago (still snowing!). Again the K-7 with 16-50 @ 34mm, f/8, 4 second exposure (tripod mounted of course).

Don't get too jealous. Tuesday is the day on which Oldham council empty the bins. Today is Tuesday. I took this photo less than an hour ago. As you may have guessed, the bins are unemptied.

Hi all,

While there's no snow on offer in Oz at this time of year, I have an image from our Southern Hemisphere winter - Mt Baw Baw looking South over Latrobe Valley, Victoria. The blob on the lens is - SNOW!

Only recycling for us this week, but not unusually, not collected on the correct, snow-free, day. Now there is no hope:

It's cold out there!
I think I need some gloves that I can keep on when taking photos - any ideas?

I wear a pair of 'sealskins' (some kind of waterproof elasticated wool) bought from an camping shop. They are relatively thin, about the same as a tight pair of leather driving gloves. It's can sometimes be a little difficult to locate the shutter button by feel but on the whole I am able to press buttons and turn dials etc. Despite being quite thin they are extremely warm and airtight and waterproof. They also have excellent grip. About 25 if I recall correctly.

I've also recently seen some interesting gloves in another outdoorsy shop. They were thick skiiing-style gloves for shooting, and the index finger zips back at the knuckle and folds back out of the way while you, literally, take the shot. Unfortunately the thumb doesn't do the same thing. They were about 40.
