While winter brings its own beauty, I often find myself uninspired to take out my camera when it gets cold outside.  I was looking through a few of winter pictures that I’d taken last year and hope to get inspired to try out my 300S this winter.  Here in Alberta we are currently sitting under 3 inches of snow and while it looks pretty, the lack of color leaves me a bit deflated.

That being said, I’m pretty happy with how this shot turned out last year.  I believe I was using a D60 at the time.  It worked out quite well and I really like the depth of field in this image.

If you want to take a look at a few other winter pictures and such, I’ve got a couple more worth looking at over in my “Ben Heide” flickr stream.  I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments.

In about a month, I’ll be heading down to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV and will be taking along my camera of course and hope to get some nice night shows of the Las Vegas Strip.  Time will tell how it all works out, but I’m hoping for some nice long exposure shots as well as a some HDR action.
