Might as well make an early entry. The snow is a little cliche.



I shall entitle this one, "Cliche!"

Anyway it was taken in Central Park in March 2005 on a college trip. I'm not artistic, I just thought it was a good documentation of the trip.

Its Summer here

Then raise United's banner high,
Beneath it's shade we'll live and die,
So keep the faith and never fear,
We'll keep the Red Flag flying here.

Okey winter is a great title. I just got some nice shots during my Ankara trip. Here we go:

1. Presence
I took it on 12 December during a camping trip to Karamursel. It is on the north of Istanbul. Okey winter does not only mean snow does it?
Camera: Nikon D50
Lens : Nikon 50mm f/1.8




2. White
I took this one on the "Köroglu Mountain Pass"(Central Anatolia) on the road of Istanbul to Ankara. Okey asked for some snow?
Camera : Nikon D50
Lens : Nikon 50mm f/1.8




3. Ice Ducks

I also took this one on another mountain passage on the road of Ankara. These guys have a very strong resistance against cold thanks to their feathers.
Camera : Nikon D50
Lens : Nikon 50mm f/1.8


I am just too good to be true...

No, posting irrelevant content to plug oneself is called spamming. p

I'm not really a winter person. I tend to stay inside whenever I get the chance. And even when I do go on a trip in the winter, it's usually to some warm and sunny destination. As a result my collection of photos that relate to the winter theme is rather limited. But there is one.

A few years ago, in March, when everyone thought the winter was already behind us and we were looking forward to spring, winter came back with a vengeance. Freezing cold and snow took us by surprise and for a few days the green grass of the Dutch polder landscape turned white.

As I came home one night, I heard the weather forecast on the radio predict the coldest night yet. As a precaution I took my camera out of the glove compartment of my car, as digital equipment doesn't like freezing cold much. I placed my briefcase on top of my car and as I was putting my camera in it, I accidentally pressed the button and the camera took a picture, engaging the automatic flash as it was already dark.

I didn't mind, as the memory card was quite sufficient to store a photo extra, and I only have it in my car in case there's an accident and I need to take a picture. So I forgot about it.

Months later I bought a new camera that didn't read my old memory card properly, so I took the memory card out of my car camera to give that one a try. It was at that point that I noticed there was a picture on it, but didn't immediately remember how it came about. When I saw the picture, I was stunned. I had no idea what I was looking at. It seemed like a picture that was taken by deep space exploration satellite, or a still picture of the old Windows screensaver. I had no idea how it got on my camera. Finally it hit me, it was the accidentally taken picture of snow in the night sky.

So here is my contribution to the February Photo Contest, entitled Starry Starry Night. Taken with a Kodak CX6200.


Mercedes bastard & Limburger-loving schmuck

Pretty unfair to make the topic "Winter" in the middle of summer. Not all of us have an extensive stockpile of photos to call on.

thats with a lot of other topics as well. Make the topic nature, not everyone has nature infront of his door, or city, etc. There will always be topics some may not like or suit to their stock of pictures. I can only say it wont be the last contest and some of the next topics may suit better for you.
