It wasn't too bad. There was about a foot wide path that wasn't too iced over. It was still there but because of the traffic, it was pretty broken up. The left side was nothing but ice.

Do you think it is still like this or would the ice be all melted now?

To walk past the first lighthouse is living life on the edge (no pun intended). One slip and you are in the lake!

Fabulous. It almost looks like bone. (I'm a nerd, so I see things differently)

I'm a little confused. This being a photography forum, these comments just don't line up with my thoughts on the PHOTO; not the SUBJECT... The subject matter is obviously very neat but from a technically standpoint I don't see anything that warrants a "wow", "very nice capture", or "awesome shot". I find it odd that out of the 20 or so comments left here already only 1 or 2 mention the technical merits of the photo and not the subject matter.

If this were the G&N section of POTN, commenting on a model's looks is pretty much forbidden and only comments (negative or positive) should be given about the technical aspects of the photo itself (lighting, composition, processing, etc...). But because this is the landscape section has everyone forgotten that this photo deserves more than just "great subject matter blah blah"? This is a photography forum not a show-and-tell "look where I have been" forum.

Honestly there is such a double standard.

Original poster, when looking at your photo it appears to be a bit underexposed and flat. A boost in contrast? Composition-wise the empty space bottom left and top right makes the image unbalanced and right-heavy. Cropping the bottom, top and left slightly would be more pleasing to my eye IMO.

Love everything about it. Really makes living in Cali pleasant. KUDOS.


Have plenty of Canons, enough ammo, enough to blow 'em to "L". Now, I just have to learn to aim.
