  1. Important: please keep your image under 700 pixels wide/high for in-line viewing, and please try to keep the FILE SIZE UNDER 300kb. Note that this includes photos hosted off-site (at Flickr, Photobucket, your own site, etc).

    Are you new to this thread? The general guidelines for these Thursday threads are right here . Remember: only 3 images each week!​
    I'll start this week's thread with a fall shot taken last year. I look forward to seeing your favorite(s) for the week.

    The Palm House

  9. Went to Canada for our holiday this year. Took the 1Ds III, 16-35mm, 24-105mm and the 70-200mm plus 1.4x. Had a great time and managed a few decent shots. Here's what I believe to be a Colombian Ground Squirrel, shot with the 70-200mm + 1.4x at a campsite in Banff.

  16. I just moved to a place out in Almond and Walnut orchard and I have seen this guy out hunting gophers in the mornings. He is a big cat and very fierce looking. I was a little wary of him at first as he was of me. It turns out he likes his head scratched and loves to be petted. He talks loudly all the time when I am outside with him with a voice that is not the traditional meow. I'm not sure who he belongs to but he has a flea collar and isn't around all the time. It seems like he needs a friend but he's a little jumpy. So I may be adopted by a cat soon, as he was lounging on my porch yesterday morning.

  22. How do you post a photo here ?​
    Alan:
    I point you to the test posting forum (see it under the list for forums). You can post away as much as you like and experiment there without anyone caring. You have to write a comment of some kind, and then you are asked to post an image, but only after you have clicked "confirm". The jpegs have to be 700 pixels on their longest side: any more than that and they will not show up in line. You also have to have a title for it to show up. Experiment on the test forum and then post your EOS image here.

  29. Andrew, I'm surprised at the depth of field you got with that extension tube. Both nice shots, too.

  32. Thom, thanks. Many of autumn's finest fungi are out now. I had walked down the other side of this slope and missed these on the way in. While putting gear back in the car a friend saw me and stopped, not knowing that I had dinner in the trunk. He talked about having a quart of cream at home and was hoping to have mushrooms for supper. I had enough to share and everyone ate well.
     
  33. Thanks Thom and Adrian.
