I've been everywhere ooooohhh yeaahhhh still I'm standing tall.
Parts of Somerset have been underwater for weeks.
"He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.
It actually feels like winter here tonight! Lows in the upper 30's- they had been in the mid/upper 50's recently. We had "rain" (actual raindrops for a few minutes, and later some sprinkles) a few days ago, and there's a chance of rain in the next few days.
It's lately been barely at freezing, if that, up at Big Bear (7000 feet), and right now tonight it's 9 degrees F. It would appear that currently we are having a bit of what is commonly referred to as "weather".

I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

You know, I could say exactly the same thing ... except I'm talking Celcius.
We've just had 39.1 / 43.0 / 31.3 / 36.7 / 37.6 / 43.4 / 43.9 over the last week. Now it's currently only 27.3, it's been falling since 33.9 at midnight and it's only going to get cooler during the day, not warmer. Feels like winter in comparison...
You know what's really hard when it's this hot? Developing. I measured the 'cold' water out of my taps at 26.5C, and I was out of ice cubes. Had to put my dev in the fridge just to get it down to 24C and at least I was somewhere on the time/temp chart...
An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.
Temperature on top of the mountain is hovering just above freezing (external temperature gauge in the Beemer read 0.5C, about 45 minutes ago); forecast is for "mixed precipitation" (read: wet snow, followed by just enough rain to wash away the former) in the am. So...loaded up the F6 with some HP5+ and will either walk to the campus in the morning or, if more ambitious, head downtown and shoot the after-effects...
Well...www.theweathernetwork.com really dropped the ball on this one: no precipitation of any sort. Woke up this am to sunshine and blue skies. Temperature a crisp 2C.
It was a wonderful day for a walk through the trails in Watershead Park - warm enough to leave my jacket half un-buttoned, and to operate my C330 without gloves.
“Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”
