Photo of the day: November 2012

It's November on the International Dateline.[/B]


Welcome to Photo of the Day. The POTD thread was started by iGary in May, 2006 and converted to a monthly thread in November 2007 by Arn. POTD is one of the most popular picture groups on MacRumors, often exceeding 500 posts and 20,000 views per month.

Photo of the Day is intended to be a showcase for your best pictures. There is no limit to your gear, just your imagination. P&S and film cameras are welcome along with DSLRs. There are no themes like the Fortnightly Challenge and Weekly Contest, and no winners (or losers) either.



Policies


*One Photo per Day - Don't post more than one photo each day.

*Quote with Thumbnails - When you quote an image please restore it's thumbnail before replying. You can do this either by installing the AutoTIMG browser extension or by editing the code by hand.

*Multi-Quote - To comment on several photos, click the Multi-Quote button. This puts all your comments in one post. Multi-Quoting is required on all of the MacRumors forums.

*SFW (Safe for Work) only - This is a site - wide rule. If you wouldn't show it in a public place, then it's NSFW (not safe for work). Think before you post.

The local beach this afternoon. Experimenting with a circular polarising filter that I just received.

I shot this guy at our local Butterfly Pavilion. He was very kind to pose so nicely for me.

Proper pronunciation is Lake District. When you see Lake's District, it's a possessive spelling. The district belongs to the lake.

Extra credit question: Who was Vinandr?

The Lake District is on my "bucket list".

True... and it's Bassenthwaite Lake. I talk about 'Lake Windermere', which is a bit of a tautology, since lake = mere... but merely to differentiate it from Windermere, the town. As well as the main lakes (16, most folk agree), there are hundreds of smaller bodies of water, mostly known as tarns...

Hey, I wasn't being a smartass about 'lakes'. I really like the Doylem pictures ...and in answer to the nitpicker correcting grammar... it turns out I was correct. It is the Lake's District. Only one lake

Mere and tarn have Old Norse origins. Lake is more likely linked to Old French and was probably imported by Billy the Conk. 1066, and all that.

This was shot a couple of weeks ago when mother nature was kind enough to allow me a couple of hours of non-rain to go out and play with my new 5DMk2 and 17-40L combo.

This is in Discovery Park in Seattle, by the way
Very nice, snyder7. I like how the clouds sort of frame the top of the lighthouse, and the logs of course make good leading lines. I think I'd like to see less of the grass covering the lighthouse, but perhaps you needed the grass to hide something there?

What a feast for the eyes. The yellow curtains inside the ornate window add a lot to this shot. Nice timing and very well seen.

I love taking photos out of airplane windows. This is from somewhere in the Andes between Lima and Cusco.

Photo of my daughter I shot on October 30th..... I shot a family photo with us all being zombies out in this great field, with this industrial section in the distance behind us. And then I shot several single shots inside my studio. This is one of the creepiest ones....

Fire!



Cropped Photo from a bonfire I recently visited. I'm finding fire to be VERY fun to photograph.

I used a Canon EOS 300D with it's stock 35-80mm lens. Unfortunately I can't remember the other details. I just cranked it down a couple steps and gave it a slowish shutter speed.
