Winter moon

I was able to get outside this afternoon and evening and get some new photos for the first time in quite some time. I got a bunch of nice shots of the end of a cold late-winter day, featuring an iced-over Tyler Creek. Stay tuned for those.

This is the current moon phase. It will be full in about three days.

Along with my trusty Nikon FM10 fully manual film camera, I took along my daughter's Kodak Easy Share C633, a point and shoot digital camera. I did a few side-by-side shots with the Kodak and Nikon - my first real foray into the digital photography realm. I must say I'm quite impressed by what a simple point and shoot digital camera can do with a little care in setting up shots. I'll intersperse a couple of those among my film offerings over the course of the next few days.

For now, I'm thawing out. Wind chill was near zero while I was out tonight.

Georgeous photograph. Glad you braved the freezing winds to capture it. Was this taken with your Nikon?

Yes, taken with the Nikon and a 70-210mm zoom lens. The one drawback of the point and shoot is its limited zoom capabilities.
