Photography Addiction by rvwalker

Photography Addiction

Let's face it... anyone who would go out to take pictures in frigid foggy weather on Christmas morning before opening gifts or having breakfast must be hooked on photography.

Well, this one made it to # 11 on the top 20 list! I am pleased that you are hooked on photography too! Thank you for your comments and favs.
lol..I know the feeling

Lovely blue sky and sunlight on the frost-covered tree.

Yes, definitely an addiction! A beautiful shot and well worth the effort.
December 27th, 2013  
I hear you Ross--I was out at sunrise Christmas , I love going out on holidays, no traffic, no cars, no people.I don't have those kind of temps though !
December 27th, 2013  
What a stunner. Fav. I was out early before sunrise but a pretty nondescript sunrise.love the light, hoary frost, leading line sense f magic
December 27th, 2013  
FAV Ross! Great contrast between the low lying fog and the blue up top!
December 27th, 2013  
This is gorgeous Ross. Love it. fav.
December 27th, 2013  
But isn't it wonderful to be hooked? :) This photo sure is wonderful!
December 27th, 2013  
Simply wonderful colours and the starkness adds such beauty, fav
December 27th, 2013  
very very pretty!!
December 27th, 2013  
@jgpittenger Thank you for the fav, Jane. I'm glad to hear I wasn't the only one to get out early on Christmas.
December 27th, 2013  
@karenmatthews Thanks for the fav, Karen. This is just a little way down 8th Street in the same place as the photo of the horses in fog.
December 27th, 2013  
@libertylady Thanks for the fav, Alice. At least it wasn't as damaging as your recent ice problems.
December 27th, 2013  
Amazing capture. That brilliant blue sky sneaking out of the fog adds such a great contrast to the snowy landscape. Merry Christmas to you and your family Ross. Hope it was great.
December 27th, 2013  
@ch1ppy_m1nton Thanks for the fav, Chippy. The amazing thing is how much the fog adds to the stark feeling. Without it, the scenery has a totally different mood.
December 27th, 2013  
@genealogygenie @pflaume @momzo @lily @nicoleterheide @losthorizon Thanks for all your great comments. It is nice to hear that so many of you share my enthusiasm for this hobby.
December 27th, 2013  
Beautiful shot!
December 27th, 2013  
It certainly produced a super scenic - fav!
December 27th, 2013  
Great shot! I would walk through ice and deep snow to get the right shot!
December 27th, 2013  
@kbird61 Thank you for the fav, Kay. We might not have much snow, but we sure have plenty of cold weather.
December 27th, 2013  
@ivan Thank you for the fav, Ivan. The frost around here can be incredible.
December 27th, 2013  
@kjbadger Thanks for your comment and the follow KJ. This would be the place to visit if you want winter conditions!
December 27th, 2013  
Awesome shot, Ross! Are you loving the K-5 II? Have you always shot Pentax? There's so few of us, you'd think I'd remember! Congrats on the PP! This shot deserves it and you do for being out in the frigid cold taking it! How do you protect the camera/lenses in this kind of cold? Just curious
December 27th, 2013  
oh, for the loveā€¦
this is perfection, ross. fav
December 27th, 2013  
@roadshow LOL. What a fun, abbreviated comment, Gloria. Thanks for the fav.
December 28th, 2013  
@soozieqt The K5 II is awesome, and an incredible bargain. It does nearly everything the more popular cameras can do, at a fraction of the price, and with built in image stabilization. So far I haven't tested this in prolonged exposure to really cold temperatures, but no doubt will get that opportunity soon. I always keep an extra battery in an inside pocket when it gets really cold, but my old K20D was used in temperatures well below zero for long times with no ill effects. When not in use, I tried to tuck it inside my coat. Thanks for your comment, Susan.

FAV
December 28th, 2013  
Another Fav Ross, the composition and blue sky is incredible, and the whiteness of the snow has a lovely purity to it.
December 28th, 2013  
@tesssa Thank you for the fav, Tessa. I'm glad you like this one.
December 28th, 2013  
@seanoneill Thanks for the fav, Sean. I think the fog helped keep the image looking clean.
December 28th, 2013  
Stunning! Fav! And yes... hooked on to photography...
December 28th, 2013  
Awesome!! Yes, addiction does force you out in ridiculous weather but what an amazing outcome!
December 28th, 2013  
@taffy Thanks for the fav, Taffy. Maybe "compulsion" would have been a better word?
December 28th, 2013  
@amrita21 Thanks for the fav, Amrita. It is fun sharing our hobby with people around the world.
December 28th, 2013

Wow...stunning snowy scene...fav. What ever happened with theme fences? I expected you to win it!
December 30th, 2013  
@amandal Thanks for the fav, Amanda. I think the official themes are a bit slower to finalize. Ross picks the finalists himself and posts them a week or so after the closing date. Thanks for your confidence.
