    Could almost think spring might be coming. I start losing hope, and then ...

    Although waiting impatiently for the CL (shipping on Monday), the X-Vario shows why it's still a great camera. If Leica had built in an EVF, they'd still be selling them.

    Nice images, Carl. Spring, you ask? We could use some in northern Vermont right now.
    Hey, just a suggestion as you wait for your CL. I found the CL to be a slippery grab. One of Tim Issac's "Thumbs Up", (Match Technical), helped a lot. 'Might be something to consider. 'Just thinking out loud here. Good luck.

    Thinking about that thumbs-up. In the meantime, will try a wrist strap to see how that does.

    Yesterday, beautiful sun, fresh snow, new camera.

    Top from the jpeg, bottom from dng. 11-23mm, no polarizer. Don't think I have one that will fit this lens.

    Carl - Very nice images. I have a leather half case with a bit of pistol grip tape on the CL right now since we are traveling. 'Getting back to images, a different version of the winter months. ;-)

    Thanks David and Christine. Quite a few municipalities around Minneapolis and Saint Paul had the forethought (or just plain luck) to create large nature parks. They've been upgraded with paved trails, interpretive signs and the like.

    These can butt up against commercial projects or freeways, so about a third of time I need to be creative with framing.

    I'll scour Google Maps in my area for hints of undeveloped areas with trails, and try to confirm as much as I can with nearby street views.

    I had a good friend who married a guy from Chaska Minnesota over 35 years ago. I went to visit once but can only remember the forked lightning that we hardly ever see here in the UK :)

    The purple in the background was from some of that forked lightening we have around here. Tough to see here though because of the clouds.

    Starting to thaw. Must be nearing the last of this series, but Minnesota will probably have one more snow storm at least. Heh.
