Here is an image I took at the very beginning of the year. To say it was a cold morning is an understatement. Two pairs of gloves plus hand warmers just didn’t do much at all. This is a 4 image stitch, probably the most challenging stitch i’ve had to do yet. Trying to set up and reel off the 4 shots with bulky gloves on in ridiculously low temperatures was a task. I lasted all of about 15 minutes out on the frozen lake until my hands became ice blocks.

Then came the fun part. Getting back to my car. As I was trying to scurry as quick as I could across the ice one of the cleats came off my boot. Great! Walking on this ice without cleats is almost impossible, as you can see in this image it is not exactly flat. Whether I fell over or not I will leave that up to you.

Aussies should stay off the ice.

This is spactacular. Now I've been out on some mighty cold days...Do not take your Auto focus for granted......I once found my self focusing a manual 400mm telephoto with the lubricant in the focusing ring freezing. I got the shot but boy was it hard to move that focusing ring.

not to be a pain but the colors seem to be a bit much on my nec 2690
how does it look on your monitor?

You are right. I processed this image on my calibrated Lacie monitor and then later uploaded it to DA and other forums from my Macbook Pro. I viewed it on my macbook pro and ended up giving it a little more punch. I just viewed it the other day for the first time on my lacie monitor and realized it was over done. I am going to go back on it some day soon and replace it with the original. Thanks for the reminder :)
