    Might as well start this off! A thread for your 2017-2018 winter images.

    Here's one from last Thursday, earliest of winter. Temps drop from fifties today, down to teens and twenties tonight/tomorrow.

    We've only had two days of freezing temperatures over the weekend so far. It's back up to a comfortable 8C now. :rolleyes:

    I have 8 weeks of leave and a beach house in Florida. Told my wife and daughter not to annoy me... That would get me through most of the Winter "In Style".

    No reason why this should only be "classic" winter shots ... Balmy and beach-house winter shots welcome, heh.

    Brian, are you going to be in the panhandle, or ?

    We usually come down every Summer- had to skip last summer. We will be down next Summer, most definitely. When I retire- the plan is to head down to Navarre and Pensacola. I've vacationed in the Panhandle ever since a Baby, which was 60 years ago now.

    We had 4 inches of snow on Monday, utter chaos. I never went out to take photos. :\

    So here's another one of some frosty spider webs

    I agree: stay home after or during a snowstorm. No reason to get the car stuck.

    Those are some busy spiders there!

    I need to push myself more to get out for pics regardless of skies. I see gray and just don't even want to put a camera in the glove box. But sometimes gray days can offer the best pics.

    Thanks, David. The last two are with a D-LUX (the twin of the LX100), those before that are with SL and the 24-90mm zoom. All are with polarizers. I use Marumi DHG CPL filters - they hit a sweet spot for polarizing-cut, pass-through transmission, and price.

    Yesterday, cold as if Minnesota temporarily joins the Arctic. SL with the 11-23mm T lens, a superb wide zoom. Could only stay out for a half-hour, this was the last shot.

    Day before yesterday, Rice Creek North Regional Trail Corridor. Leica T, 11-23mm, no polarizer (don't think I have one for this lens):

    David, Christine - Winter can sure be beautiful. Great shots.

    Mostly grey and overcast here. Shouldn't be a deterrent to pics, I know. Have the D-LUX in the glove box though, ready if opportunity strikes.

    Believe me, it's a bit of everything here in the UK. From lovely Spring sunshine to freezing sleet and wind (today) in a matter of hours! That's what we get for living on a small island!
