  1. Important: please keep your image under 1000 pixels on the longest side for in-line viewing, and please 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 Wednesday threads are right here: http://www.photo.net/nikon-camera-forum/00W7km. This forum's moderators are allowing up to three Nikon Wednesday images per week, so share some work!

    Nature generously provided a friendly, short-lived snow for us to enjoy here in the mid-Atlantic area. Just in time for a season bit of Nikon Wednesday-ing. Here, a tripod was called for, as it was a 2.5 second exposure by candle-light. I'm sure some of you encountered some snow, too - share some photos!

  3. No snow where I am in northern California. Would you settle for a kestrel?

  4. From our house here in Uruguay, we can see one tree standing defiantly at the top of a hill as 'king-of-the-castle'. The other trees seem to be cautiously approaching up the slope. Given the sometimes fierce winds and periodic lightning, it must be a very tough tree.

  5. I had snow this week, but only a tiny dusting. Ten miles north they had four inches; c'est la vie.

    I can do you a little frost, though - this was in a sheltered spot. D810, 24-120, polariser (for no good reason).

  6. We actually had semi-photogenic weather in Staines for once. Here's the view from the bridge in my lunchbreak. 24-120, polariser (for a reason this time), D810.

  7. Staines is mostly known for swans, and the occasional crow. However, the pigeons are moving in... (D810, 24-120, polariser.)

    From the peak on Hong Kong Island, overlooking the Victoria Harbour and the Kowloon Peninsula.

    Nikon D850 with 18-35mm AF-S lens @ 18mm, f11, 1/160 sec and base ISO 64.
    I was there last week around noon time such that lighting wasn't the best, but being in December with a lower angle from the sun helped a bit.

    When I was growing up in Hong Kong 4, 5 decades ago, the buildings were not nearly as tall such that we had a better view of the harbor. Today, much of that is blocked by this "concrete jungle" unless one shoots from even higher up from an aircraft or drone.

    Victoria Harbour at night.

    Nikon D850 with 24-70mm/f2.8 AF-S VR lens at 48mm, f8, 1 second, and ISO 800 on a tripod. Of course I could have used ISO 64 with a longer time exposure such as 7, 8 seconds, but once again, the motion of the boats in the harbor could be an issue, or that could be a desirable effect. As the way it is now, some of the ships are blurred.

    No snow, rather warm for the season. This from another time.
