    It's March on the International Dateline.

    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.

    Had to make a choice yesterday , clean the basement or see if the Great Falls in Paterson were still frozen . I feel kinda guilty breaking the string of bird pix , but , if you look real hard under the bridge , just above the peak of the roof of the beige house , there's a small speck that could be a bird .

    Edit : Wasn't a bird , just crap on my screen.

    Shot the snow shovel in my garage which I posted a few days ago again today. Wasn't happy with several things on the previous shot when I looked at it again. Didn't like the composition (the shooting position in the previous shot gave the shovel a funny perspective), didn't like the harsh shadows on the wall, and wanted the foreground to be in focus.

    Nikon 85mm PC-E @ f/11, ISO 64, 1.6 sec. Slight tilt to bring everything into focus. Overcast daylight coming in from the front of the garage.

    What are you talking about? I think you guys are losing your minds. :D

    Seriously...I have no idea what I did but the first posted shot was a mirror image so I reposted to the one you see now.

    Not that it matters much but this is the original way it was shot.

    A moody morning at Crescent Head, NSW.

    I lost my grad filter and Z filter holder here :( Let me know if it finds its way across the ocean and ends up on your beach ;)

    Magnificent. Outstanding composition, framing, colour and subject. Terrific lines, and lighting. In a word, superb.

    Ah, I love your snowy owls. Lovely shot.

    (But the one of the snowy owl brooding on the fence post in the snow from last month was superlative - I loved it.)


    Gorgeous picture.

    Some cracking photos have been posted already; what a great start to this months' thread!

    Here's a shot of The Shard, taken a few days ago. It was grey and raining, and Siri told me it would be a dry day so I didn't take an umbrella with me, and I found myself a little sodden at the day's end. Still, it makes for interesting photos!
