Last week's thread

  • I'm no longer seeing the text to the right of the featured photo ("submit yours or vote for next week's image", etc.). Is this a "feature", browser artifact, or something else entirely? – D. Lambert Apr 1 '11 at 18:24
  • Ok, never mind - it's back now. – D. Lambert Apr 1 '11 at 18:39
  • @DLambert - the message has to be manually set and renewed every 48 hours, so there are occasions when it's slightly out of sync or missing - any of the moderators should be able to do it, and we can be poked in the site's chat room over at chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/14 as required – Rowland Shaw Apr 1 '11 at 18:46

    That explains why it has been appearing and disappearing seemingly randomly in the past. :) – Guffa Apr 2 '11 at 1:39
  • @Guffa that's also why the winner announcement generally appears not long after I get to the office on Monday mornings :) – Rowland Shaw Apr 2 '11 at 13:29
  • @Rowlnd -Interesting. The old sites allowed the mod to specify the date for the message to expire. – John Cavan Apr 3 '11 at 2:02
  • @John there was a change that changed this behaviour back in December - it's now limited to a maximum of 48 hours – Rowland Shaw Apr 3 '11 at 8:47

Cherry Blossoms

Cherry blossoms

It's cherry blossom season at the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

I took this photo Saturday on a beautiful, but cold spring day. A persistent breeze kept the branches and flowers waving to and fro, so it took some patience to get a clear shot.

Taken with a Canon 5Dmk2 and Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L lens at 70mm and f/4. Shutter time 1/640 and ISO 100.

A bigger version is available here, along with more shots of cherry blossoms from the National Mall.

  • Thanks! :-) Blogging has turned out to be a great motivation to get out and take pictures on a regular basis. – user2559 Mar 29 '11 at 23:59

Ice under water
I took this, my first ever HDR picture, in a nearby park (former landfill). What may appear to be a reflection of clouds is actually ice, melting beneath the water's surface.

Taken with a PowerShot G12; the original can be found here.

So It Begins

So It Begins

Took this last year in October (hence the title). I never posted it to Flickr, but I did post it on my site as part of my Project 360 - October collection if you want to see a larger copy.

    Like the picture. Voted for the picture. But, John, there's still freakin' snow on the ground here in TO -- couldn't you have rounded up something a little more hopeful? You know, a bit of green poking out of somewhere? (Dave Phillips says we're getting a summer worthy of Southern Texas this year, though, so maybe a bit of chill is still okay.) – user2719 Apr 1 '11 at 1:59
  • @Stan - LOL, I suspect that the subject isn't helping my cause this week either... I will try to be more hopeful in the next one, but thanks for the vote. :) – John Cavan Apr 1 '11 at 2:17

Stoat

Taken in Cambridge, UK.

This was taken in Cambridge, UK when I was out for a walk. I was mostly photographing the birds but then this stoat appeared! I was lucky to get this shot just as it clambered out of the river after a swim.

  • This is 375x250, you need to crop down to 375x210. – fredley Mar 28 '11 at 21:45
