And it's a much prettier landscape than most photos on the Wikipedia page: Sun dog - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Thanks - I'd never heard of Sun Dogs until today. I don't remember seeing one. I sent it to DW at work and she suggested I send it to the Chicago TV stations. I did, and there's hundreds of other Sun Dog photos taken today on their websites. It was still slightly visible at about 4:00 pm

It has to be really cold for them to appear. Brrrrrrrrrr!

I don't think my camera batteries would function very long at -17!

I was only outside about 2 minutes with the camera today. It was too cold for the camera and for me. And very windy. Yesterday I had some fogging on the lens after 10-15 minutes outside and some moisture from the snowfall and I don't want to put a camera through that again

Beautiful!
First look, I thought it was black and white only. I'm always amazed at photos taken in 'winter light'. Maybe its because I don't get that kind of light at the latitude I live at.

Isn't that Broomville? Maybe Broomville is another town not in the Adirondacks?

Sometimes the days that you really don't want to take your camera outside are the days that you should.

Great shot of the pup, Mr. Paul. I hope to take my SIL's dog on a photo shoot next week when I dog sit. But I'm a little reluctant to let her off the leash.

+1

Some of my best images are taken at the cusp where rainy weather turns to sunshine and visa-versa.

Still at St. George Spirits (Alameda, CA). Lots of lines and textures.

Pileated Woodpecker

Spotted this fella in a neighbor's 'almost dead' oak tree. Have also been trying to get a photo of a red-cockaded woodpecker that visits my sycamores this time of year. However, unlike this Pileated Woodpecker who would preen for the camera, the much smaller red-cockaded woodpecker don't like the paparazzi.

The copper kettle really makes the image 'pop'.

Nice image. Have you thought about cropping the top 20% out?

No I can't say that I have. The building itself is beautiful (a former aircraft hangar on the US Naval Air Station Alameda), and the building's structural elements are beautiful in their own right (IMO at least ). I think that the still's copper color makes it pop enough, even out this rather busy background.
