    Looks like snow. I'll likely head over to Stokely Creek, which is pretty close to my place. Sometimes when it's snowing I feel like I'm risking my life just to come into town. I hope lots of others show up though. It'd be great and I'll get out with a group soon, I hope.

    Just checked the weather and it doesn't look all that great.

    "SUNDAY: A few flurries ending in the morning then a mix of sun and cloud with 40 percent chance of flurries. High -15C(5F). Sunday night cloudy with 40 percent chance of flurries. Wind up to 15 km/h (9 mph). Low -22C(-8F). Wind chill -30."

    I am hoping that it will be better around noon.

    Got there at around 11:30, waiting till about 12:10. It was a no show other than a colleague. I did bring out the wrong lens though. He was getting all the nice wildlife shots, and I had to be content with a different subject matter lol. Oh the pain of it hehe. We both had a very good time. I am open to more outings, especially on the weekends.

    I live out in Goulais and had a bunch of other things to do. I did end up going out for a walk and taking my camera though. I'll post any shots that look half decent.

    Sorry nobody else showed. I'm sure that will change as the weather gets warmer though.

    Looking forward to seeing your photos.

    I wasn't expecting anyone, and that included my friend. I had mentioned the outing to him at work and was surprised he remembered. It has been a busy week with exams and all.

    I am quite content in going alone, as that is the norm for me anyhow. I am also open to going out in a group though (seems to be more fun than alone...go figure! ). As I have said, any other weekend or something like that, and if I can make it, I will.

    As for the results..I have already posted them.

    So how do people post images on here? What's the simplest way?

    Easiest way for me is to open a photo bucket account, upload them as 800xXXX jpegs with a compression level of around 180.0k. Once on your photo bucket storage area, all you have to do is right click on the IMG CODE URL found under your photo, and copy and paste it into this forum. When you submit reply, you should see your photo in your response. Easy.

    I admire your fisheye. Time was I had a bunch of equipment of my own, now I just have a little point and shoot. Thinking SLR in the future at some point maybe. Specially when I see shots like this one.

    I tend to be a packrat when it comes to photographic equipment.

    As for the fisheye, I do like it. Pentax was the first to come out with a fisheye zoom for film cameras, and then this second variant for APS-C digital sensor sized bodies. I hear you can now get the 11-17mm for Canon and Nikon from Tokina.

    Pentax has always been a very good manufacturer. I've always leaned toward Canon, but I have to say when I got my little W60 my G7 started gathering dust. Smaller, lighter, weatherproof and takes great photos. I always found the G7 very bulky, which probably explains why I don't have an SLR at this point in time.
