    The Cosmic Wind Locked in Ice

    Taken near the small boat harbor (such as it is) here in Anchorage this morning. We have had about 10 days of sub-zero weather lately. It was minus 2 degrees when I took this photo at noon. On the plus side, the skies have been sunny and we're finally getting more hours of daylight as we climb out of the long dark days of winter.

    Anchorage International Airport is located on that land in the far distance is . The brownish haze is pollution. It can be very noticeable here in the winter.

    Clear Winter days, crazy warm, perfect to take the old bike for a ride to the top of a mountain.

    The composition is a bit unusual in that the motorcycle is pointed out of the photograph, not into it, drawing your eye away from the hill and cows. But, that's o.k. I like it anyway.

    As regards the "Great White North" thermometer photo, I offer this photo taken here in Tucson this afternoon:

    Pyramid Lake



    I had high hopes for this week's assignment, but I'm left disappointed with my meager effort. Normally, Bakersfield is socked in for the winter, devoid of any direct sunlight and blanketed in chronic cold, wet fog; however, this winter, we've been cursed/blessed with constant sunshine and temps soaring into the 60s. I've taken some nice pictures, but none that really say, "winter."

    I had to go to a conference last weekend and snapped this shot of Pyramid Lake, just south of the Grapevine. Taken with my Canon S80. Contrast is too low, exacerbated by the fact that I was shooting almost directly into the sun.

    We feel your pain, Tom.

    This winter has been the best weatherwise we've ever had

    - nestled in the Big Bend Country of Texas. Only snow was one morning after Thanksgiving.

    Both are great shots, but I really love this second one, Dave.

    In the ideal world, I think I would have preferred them both coming into the frame. But, sometimes, you take what you can get! And this time you done got good.

    I like the first one better, but would have opted to put the bike on the right side of the picture and looked down the road on the left. The cows don't add to shot but I think the road would have. Either way the bike steals the show.

    I like both of Dave's shots just the way they are (minus the little bit of cow peeking in on the right edge of the frame). They may be breaking a couple design rules, but as is they aren't cliche.
