Winter – Silence Snowfall, the whole day Winter at last Cold and grey All quiet I hate it! Share this:EmailPrintLike this:Like Loading... Related 25 thoughts on “Winter – Silence” Add yours Frank, great to read something quite poetic, like a little winter haiku! Quite surprised the image isn’t b/w though, to fit the weather and mood… We had a brief flirtation with snow here yesterday, a few flurries for all of an hour. Then an hour later still and it was all melted and forgotten. What’s your favourite season for photography? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Spring! No questions! Autumn is Ok for the colors but there’s nothing like spring light. There’s hope! LikeLike Reply Spring is very close – lots of snowdrops and crocus peeping through the cold earth over here… Re the K10D, an A 50/1.7 certainly shouldn’t be soft. Have you tried it on a film camera? My focus confirm light (the little polygon on the VF) is reliably accurate and I’ve used it when the light has been too difficult to focus otherwise. I have heard of some cameras (not just the K10D) having issues with “back focusing” When you Google it there’s lot that comes up… https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=k10d+back+focus LikeLiked by 1 person I’ll look into that! Never had that problem with a Fuji X-E1… LikeLike Dan, pssst, don’t tell: that’s a photo from a Pentax K10D! I struggle with focusing though. The A SMC 50 1.7 seems very soft. And I think I’ll turn off the focusing aid as it gets it wrong mostly. Or can it be my camera???? When I do color I mostly prefer it subdued. LikeLike Reply Aww! You been holding back on us with that there Pentax, Frank. 🙂 Thought we wouldn’t notice eh? 😉 LikeLiked by 1 person Awww, you got me! I’s sawry Master LikeLike Dan, I took along my 55 1.8 Takumar today and focus is spot on…. strange. I’ll do some more tests with the lenses. I’d love to have a real focusing screen with all the bells and whistles. Microprisms and split screen… LikeLike Wish we had some snow that settled, it’s always a media sensation and the whole country breaks down when it snows. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Same here, three centimeters of snow and the country grinds to a stop…. pathetic LikeLike Reply Nonsense! 🙂 Snow fight, sledging, little drifting, it was a really good day over a long time. Now I hope that there will be more snow followed by good cold sunny weather and I can finally make good winter pictures. The low contrast grey is really not interesting.
