    It's March 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.

    *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.

    I thought you managed to keep your GAS limited to Fuji and Sony?

    I've wanted one for ages and finally bit the bullet last week. I'm going to sell my X100T to fund a new lens. Then GAS is over for a while whilst I sort out a buyer for several internal organs to pay for the M9.

    If anyone wants to buy a mint condition X100T and you're in the UK by the way....pm me.

    Welcome to the too poor to buy the lens I want club!

    I bought a Nokton 50mm f1.1 and was disappointed. :-(

    Pick up a deal at TPS? I'm going to look at some carbon fibre tripods. I keep leaving the aluminium one in the car because of the weight.

    So I have a flawless plan... She is a second card holder on my account and when she is buying Ugg boots and lelly Kelly shoes for the girls on it, she is scared to look at the bill....

    Linked my mother in law's Kindle to my account too... That was a mistake! She spends £35 a month on books... But as she looks after the girls after school, I can't complain - to her... I can moan on here though... At the utter tosh that she buys... !

    Here's a tip tip for a guy that's been married nearly 20 years. When making a big purchase put some on your card and pay some in cash. That way it looks like you spent less ;)

    Summer 2016 in Germany on the "NoJokes Trail". MTB is also one of my passions. On the picture two friends of mine on their bikes, I was behind the cam (this time ;)).

    A6000, kit lens

    ISO 2500 (very low light conditions in the forest!)
    F5 @ 30 mm
    1/2500 exposure
