Worth getting up early for!

The BoetMeister & I got out & about before dawn this morning (not that hard
to do when it doesn't get light 'till after 8am) and over to Pannerden, only
down the road from me, for some "sunrise in the cold" pictures.
It was bloody freezing All those knobs & buttons on the camera mean I'm
not comfortable wearing gloves but my fingers were freezing off in minus 13
degrees!
I was clever enough to have left my laptop charger in the truck this weekend
so these have been "adjusted" with Google's "Picasa" image editor on the
home laptop and not Photoshop. Not a bad little program, for free.
Boet had me a little worried when we shuffled out onto the frozen lake,
crutch on one arm, thousands of pounds worth of camera equipment on the
other.

Flippin' lovely stuff Mr XL. :)

For cold & frosty mornings, suggest a pair of these; http://www.seasaltcornwall.co.uk/acatalog/jabberwocky_mitt_emerald.php
Got some for xmas & they're a joy & a boon for photography - keep most of your mitts warm, leave your fingers free for buttons & such, & are super-long so they keep your wrists toastie when you lift the camera.

I just found these - they are breathtaking. It was well worth losing a finger or two to get these shots - especially the snowy path one - sixth one down.
