I'm pretty good at spotting a decent composition and have the skills to shoot it but that's entirely different than actually assembling a composition.

    Dave. The feeder is a big chunk of wood. We've used the wire cages for years but after moving to the city the crows are pretty good at destroying those. It was shot through our den window at a distance of about 12 - 15 feet so made the shot pretty easy. At what point does the ice load on that stuff you're shooting start breaking things? Great shots.
    Curious, Sandy. I've only posted a handful of compositions, as they rarely work out. Only three-four I can think of, really. All of them took a lot of time, and I was rarely happy with them. LOL....

    Even my latest one with Bernie is very flawed.

    Well, the pier house and the beacon tower have been there for over a hundred years. Are made of thick iron plates riveted together like old shipbuilding techniques. The pier house also has a big concrete base shaped like a ship bow to break any ice flows. Summer time view:


    And the catwalk is almost a hundred years old. That too seems to withstand ice load, but does get bashed up from time to time by big ice chunks getting washed up against it. Portions have been rebuild over the years.

    Well Dave. We have ice as well. Maybe not quite in the quantity you have though. We're just getting over a cool spell, minus mid 20s, so I thought I'd better get down into this local canyon before spring arrives ....soon right?

    HAHA I know! That's basically it right there! We are moving on to the 3 month mark and she is bonded to me and loves my affection. I definitely don't restrain myself in dishing that affection out. This is my first dog as and adult and it's by far the best thing I've done in along time. Thanks!

    Thinking that with the clear sky might be interesting sunset, but nope, sun disappeared behind heavy clouds on horizon.

    So went out onto the pier, cranked up the ISO, and waited for lights to come on.

    Ice is from when was cold and windy with waves splashing up onto the pier. And has remained cold since then.

    Dave these pics are great! I would swear your on the ocean... Stay warm out there!

    Well, when stand there looking at it, and know it it goes 70 miles to the south, 170 miles to the north and 90 miles across to the west and all that see is water all the way horizon, left, right and forward, it might as well be an ocean.
    Bad part about it that know are no roads to explore anywhere to the west, so cuts the riding area to half of about anywhere else.

    Thanks Jedz. The ice still had some water flowing over it so using a tripod and an NDx6 filter allowed me to use a slow shutter speed to soften the water movement.

    I'm using Flickr for my pictures right now. Seems to be working but I've had to change free hosting services before cuz what do ya want for nothin right?

    I also have some add ons on my browser that "fence" facebooks from everything else I do on the inter stuff. So I guess don't worry about it.

    Eesscccchhhh ... I dont want to know what that is like.

    But I suppose not too far below normal for you, and if you want to get out into the canyons and/or upto the mountains that is what you have to deal with.

    Actually the temp was in celsius which would be around -13 F. which is still a good chill. Last week it dipped to almost -30c which is not unusual for winter temps here. Just not usually the middle of February. It is a dry cold though, LOL, and we do have nice warm clothes and know when to just stay home.
