The first of 2006....(pic)

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Doug Barber, Jan 3, 2006.

  1. Well after a very busy Christmas season and almost a full month of nothing but cloud and fog. I finally gave up and went out to (try) and capture something worth keeping.

    This can be a little tricky when one cannot see more than 20' in front of your face. So after bumping around for a bit I gave up and just snapped this shot and went home with my tail between my legs.

    Darn I hate it when the weather warms up and we got all this darn fog.....
    What a waste of a perfectly good winter....

    Oh well I need to start 2006 someplace so it might as well be here....

    Shot #1 for 2006....

    I know the shot is no hell but for now i'll blame it on the camera...:Whistle:
  2. Doug,
    with a start like this, i get the feeling the Cafe is in for a treat from you and the north.

    That's a beauty!

    When I see your images I realize that there are things right under our noses that we can be shooting.

    We've had bad fog every morning down here in Florida for over a week and I never thought of going out there--now I'm hoping for more fog.

    Thanks for sharing your 2006 'start' with us,
  9. If that is a tail between your legs shot I don't understand photography. Lovely image so soft and mysterious. Thanks for sharing your talent Doug.
  10. Thanks, Doug! Yet another reminder that we just need to stop, clear our heads of preconceived notions, and look around for image-worthy scenes that may be right in front of us...

    Nice moody feel to this one.
  11. Oh boy Dave.....
    Now you are putting lots of pressure on and I'll have to live up to it...lol

    Thanks for the kind words
  12. Boy you can have this weather.....
    Mind you I'm sure would deal with it MUCH better than I can.

    Thanks Terry, Kevin Phil and Mike...

    Thanks for the kind words. I'm not sure this image deserves it but I thank you for them.
  14. Good Morning Gaye....

    I'm just trying to get to your level... After seeing your "Best of 2005"...
    I'm not sure if I can get there or not.
  15. Heck Gordon....
    The "old" tail between shot is when you just GIVE UP"... POINT THE CAMERA AND CLICK THE DARN SHUTTER....:wink:

    I'm sure you have done it a couple times yourself.....lol
  16. Well Dave....
    There is more times than I can count that I walked and walked looking for a shot. But then remembers the wise words of Jarrell Conley and stopped to look real hard at everything you can see from were you are standing

  17. Love both of them! You're off to a good start - still haven't dusted my gear off yet this year - dark grey skies with rain. I'll take fog!
