We're having a late winter spell here. Almost no snow all winter and temps above freezing most of the time, but now at the end of february it's -10°C and we're having lots of snow, more than 50cm in many places and more than 100 in the hills. Surprised

Here are a few shots from a walk the other day. All with a Minolta MD 35-70mm/3.5 macro zoom on a Sony NEX-6 and Lens Turbo II. The LT has a little bit of play on both interfaces (camera and lens side). I padded them with some electrician's tape to get a better fit but it's still not perfect. Over time it gets loose again and then there's problems with one side of the image being unsharp. Sad

You are not alone. Wink
It's definitely too cold for me for any photo excursion outside....

BTW, nice pictures!

I've whittled it down to 1,2 or 6 as favourites miran. I might have to give to 6. Great shot Like 1 .

10cm snow here. And I think -1c is far too cold especially with brutal cold winds.

#5 for me, I like all of these.

Thanks. Smile Yesterday morning it was -19°C and it hasn't been more than around -6°C for a few days now. Surprised

It's pretty nippy around my way in Scotland too at the moment, although not too bad.

The winds blowing the wrong way unfortunately. I live under a 350m bluff, which signifies the land stepping up to form the highlands. All the powdery snow that's been lain down up there is being blown off and straight onto the town. I formed 300mm deep footsteps getting to the door today, and they had gone within an hour under a new coating. It hadn't snowed, just blew off the mountains.

But to be honest, I love the snow Happy Cat .
