Pan G1 plus 14-45
A proper Devon lane
Panasonic GF1 with Voigtlander 12mm, f/5.6, iso 200, 1/25 @ f/11
This is the lane going up a hill behind my cottage photographed after our first snowfall on 2nd December.
Nice lane to go Barrie, great captured! Thanks for sharing.
Cold cold ice Babe...
snowed overnight, which is unusual here in the South West
Christmas scene - but it is just cold, damp and misty, which is reflected in the images - not great for "photos" - but I had to get out there as I was instructed by my wife to do so, " go and take some pictures so that I can "get on with it' was the cry"
I think the dampness has brought out the dreaded LCD "coffee stain" on my M8 - anyway it's a Leica so you are supposed to "just give praise" and ignore any faults, sorry I mean't quirks
Looking down on our humble abode and back up through the back garden - just waiting for the thaw to see what leaks we have in the roof!
we should really get back to "the City" - as it's nice and warm there - Oh dear, I've just started to sneeze - my middle name is scrooge

Its a bit cold here!
One from yesterday. Taken with the X1.
No such snow here. Just rain here and there and 50deg is pretty much as cold as it gets.
big blizzard around the northeast here in the USA

Taken at about 9.30pm on the 17 December when it finally 'landed' on Merseyside couldn't get out quick enough with my X1 stood in the shelter of the door way because of the rate the snow was falling.
Yesterday, I took my new G12 for a tramp through the fields above the village. Here's a sample:
Here's a gallery:
Preuschdorf, Christmas, December 2010: G12 in the snow Photo Gallery by John Ewing at pbase.com
You can leave comments on the images, e.g. "load of rubbish", "get a life", etc.
These were all shot as JPEGs at standard settings. Default G12 sharpening is a bit fierce, as you can see, and there's a bit of red/cyan fringing in places. I shot most of these on Canon's "200% dynamic range extension" and adjusted levels afterwards - I usually underexpose on purpose, anyway. Generally speaking, I'm pleased with the range of hues captured - it's almost comparable to a small SLR.
One thing I found: although I kept it in a handwarmer pocket when not shooting, using a metal-bodied camera at -7°C is a chilling experience.
@BBW Great shot. I hope he wasn't frozen in place. Lucky for us the blizzard stayed to the east of us.
Thanks all, it was mighty chilly and deep.
Penny, I can feel the stillness and quiet as you stood in that doorway. John, your "sample" is so compelling with its subtle beauty. I haven't made it in to your gallery yet, but plan to. There's something about the countryside in snow...and seeing your image makes me wish I were there instead of in the pretty but suburban town where I am most of the time.
