    Man, its a blasted 86° out there. 2 nights ago I had a fire in the wood stove. Now I'm out there with the DR brush mower cutting the briars and sweating like a hog. All my life I've been a summertime person. But you know what?--I'd lot rather be out there in the cold with a maul than out there sweating like a pig behind the power implements.

    But the theory has been debunked many times by the earthquake experts.

    The theory only works if everyone in the area wears a cone shaped aluminum foil hat.

    In Minnesota and across the Midwest we are expecting a snow storm tomorrow and into Friday that could potentially yield 6-12 inches of fresh snow.

    Can't wait for that one. It's been a very long winter.

    The advent of snow is a good opportunity to try and emulate this shot by Andre Kertesz, taken in Central Park in NY.

    https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Ke...ml%3B640%3B455

    Take two shots, cut both negatives in half, flip one and join to the half of the other shot in the negative carrier and hey presto a wonderful concentric composition.

    At 7:52 LCT ("Left Coast Time"), the temperature is sitting around 20C here, on top of the mountain. Cherry and magnolia trees are in full bloom (captured early this am on E100VS), and everything else is green. Just watching a gorgeous sunset from my second story window. I really should have been downtown (English Bay or Granville Island or...) or else down in Ladner or White Rock, but...just a beautiful day to appreciate being alive and doing nothing more than savoring the fact...

    Bradley,

    Was a little cooler in the Seattle area, but mostly sunny from about 10:30 am on.

    Of course, if the Cdn State (Province) Department hadn't been knuckle draggers, you would've been in Kent, right?

    Yes, and spending some Federal Reserve Notes and doing my bit to make a few minor adjustments to the current account balances. lol

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
