What a nice day to do a little snow shoe camera expedition on the island with a friend. Here are a few photos taken earlier today.

Great photos! I love seeing pictures of the Island, my husband's grandparents live out so we go out there often.

Glad to see you back here Chako, missed seeing your photos!

Thank you.

I am not much of a winter shooter, but it was great fun to go snow shoeing on the island.

I was worried that my big feet would somehow trip me and I would go for a swim in the snow with my camera cushioning my fall buried a few feet under me lol. Luckily, no such thing occurred. I do know I love my Canadian Military surplus aircraft aluminum snowshoes. Because of this slight fear, I used the Pentax K10D that is at least body weather sealed. I just don't have one of the better Pentax weather sealed lenses yet to ummm…seal the deal.

Can't say that I have. Too bad it wasn't a 1.8. They tend to be a little cheaper and..er...more disposable.

The pristine, glistening snow "almost" makes me forget how much I hate winter! LOL. Nice stuff.

I agree. It almost makes me like the snow.
