    My workplace (well, one of them). I was barely able to drive out of the parking lot.

    Today wasn't even that cold. I don't think it ever dropped below 30. Just lots and lots of snow!

    But why would anyone go into the bar when there's a giant bucket of beer there, free for the taking? ;)

    So I did some experimenting the past couple of days (in terms of where I was to take photos) ... a few of the results:

    Awesome shots. I'm kinda jealous at how much you get out there and snap away.

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone!

    TheSeeker, truth be told, I really don't get out nearly as often as I would like to take photos (maybe once or twice a month at this rate). But this weekend I went upstate to see family. And since I was a passenger in the car, I figured I'd see what I could capture out the window as we headed up the Thruway at 70mph - which offers some interesting views. The snow certainly helped give everything a bit of personality. But I wish I'd set my shutter speed even faster than the 1/2000th of a second I ended up using (it's tough to tell, in camera, just how sharp the images are). I wound up with some decent shots, but I'd have had even more had I jacked the shutter speed up even further. Still, it was an interesting experiment that I'll try again sometime.

    ^after seeing too many potential picture shoots going 70 on a sharp curve without a breakdown lane, I really want a camera on the car roof :lol:

    Everywhere else, it's called "jogging, uphill." In Los Angeles, we call it "hiking."

    I hear TARDISes (TARDI?) get better gas mileage.

    I'll be very, very disappointed if doubleoh doesn't get his own sitcom at some point. Hollywood, you're looking a gift geek in the mouth.

    But you can always get there before you left.
