Photo of the day: February 2013

Well it's February already...where is the time going?

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.

** To see all of our past POTD threads please see the sticky thread here **

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.

*Describe your photo - Tell what it is and where you took it. If you know the EXIF data of a photo, include it. The following EXIF fields are recommended: Camera, ISO, Focal Length, Shutter/Aperture and Lens.

*Photography forum tutorials - If you need any help with posting, try one of these tutorials.

Posting Photos to Photo Forums from Flickr and ImageShack

Hard walking. Brutal at -20C with stiff wind. We gave it up and went home.

Nice to see the snow on the landscape. I bet you're having fun with that.

No wildlife today but maybe some this weekend, instead I snapped some photos of one of my MGS figurines and made a little collage thingy as I'm excited for the new MGS games that will be coming out this year.

Playing with a homemade snoot (a tube of cardboard) attached to my wireless flash with a rubber band, using it in conjunction with on camera flash... This is just the second time I've used my flash and so far it's been pretty painless.

While I'm certain that this photo is SFW, my photostream contains artistic nudity. (Granted, Flickr hides these photos containing 'moderate' and 'restricted' content if you do not have your filters set to show things rated other than 'safe,' or if you are not logged in, but I just wanted to give everyone a heads-up.)

I love seeing thoughtful architectural design features like this little bench by the doorway. Nice observation Doylem.

I was surprised by the many cars speeding down around this corner given the icey conditions, many lost traction.
