Photo of the day: September 2013

It's September on the International Dateline.


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 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.

*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.

How to Quote, Multi-Quote and Edit Posts

Restoring Thumbnails in Photo Quotes (AutoTIMG Extension and Code Editing)

For One-Click Access, they are all here: Designer Dale's Google Docs Folder:



Note: Anyone may start the Photo of the Day thread on the first of the month GMT. Please copy a quote of this post or download the Welcome file from HERE when you do. Both maintain all the formatting and links.


** To see all of our past POTD threads please see the sticky thread here **[COLOR="#808080"]

I'll kick it off with this one.

F5.6, ISO 200, 1/220, Fuji X100

When driving at night, these birds will dart out right in front of you and run across the road, often in great numbers, you can really only do 50km/h max (~30mph) safely in these areas.

This is a photo of Dingle Bay, Ireland, on a rare sunny evening. I like the way that the line of the boats leads your eye into the sunset.

I can't help returning to this spot since it's literally just outside my back door. The sunsets get interesting this time of the year aided by the forest fires west of here. From last night.

Nice shot. I like you went for B&W on this. Seems to work well.

Nice light and shadows in the church yard.

There was some great light in that bungalow. It was a little metal prefab from the late forties/early fifties that was used after the war. Even though I'm not from that era, being in it made me feel really nostalgic and warm inside. It was like stepping back in time to a more simpler and nicer period. It had been done out really well to depict what life was like after the war.

I know that it's a one photo per day thread but I thought you might appreciate seeing another pic from the same house as it may stir the memories some more

Reminds me of when I was a kid , too . Actually , up until around 20 years back , I could visit older relatives whose houses were furnished remarkably close to what was in that museum house . They were from the Depression Era , when folks bought something and expected it to last them out.

Both those chairs could have come straight out of my grandparents house. They never replaced anything!

Gorgeous colours and great detail Peter.

--------------------

Found this little fella out in the front yard this morning amongst the rock roses. It was pretty small, about 40mm in body length. Wish I had the macro lens on to get even better detail and that I could have gotten a front on view, but as I went around to grab a shot from the front it took off.
