Winter's Coming

from last winter...this was one of the first times out with my D200, and I was disappointed with the performance of the battery in very cold conditions ( -25 C ) I head out with a couple of spares in a pocket near my body to keep them warm. At this temperature, battery power plummets very quickly--I almost drained a battery in under an hour. It was also one of my first tries with an ND grad filter...I used a cokin 2-stop soft filter mounted on the wide-angle version of the P holder...the edges of which were visible at 12mm on the Tokina 12-24mm lens.


I think this image demonstrates the classic landscape principle of using lines to draw the eye into the distance
