Nature in winter

Some winter pictures are in order this seriously cold year. Above woodpecker shot with Nikon 70-300 VR through the kitchen window (yes it was that cold, not me being lazy or anything...).

Still excited about my 70-300, btw. A whole lot to learn (build some muscle maybe?) before I manage to hold it still even with vibration reduction on...

More cold pictures inside the post!

Some bugger left footpints in the snow. All kinds of creatures come by the house looking for food.

Some dry grass and a field covered with snow. Want more vacation in the middle of nowhere!

The three last images were made with my kit lens (18-70) and D70s which still works fine when it's under -20 Celcius.

Have fun!
