It's dark when I get to work and dark when I leave.

I hate the winter.

Yours doesnt look to bad either Kenan.

I keep meaning to bring a camera on my commute; although its mainly urban (its all urban), I still get some good veiws from Highgate over the City, Horseguards Parade and the London Eye as well as Parliament square on the way home.

Bit dark both ways at the moment.

There's a nice section of mine. The 'rural' in the suburb-rural-castle-village-town sandwich. :)

To be fair, when I ride it there is usually more traffic and it's travelling a fair bit slower. Less spectators too.

Getting lighter on the commute now, can actually see some of the surroundings.

OK, so it wasn't the most direct route, but it only added about 5 miles...

MRS, it was your photos on the other thread that made me decide to take some!
But in order not to be considered boasting, better hide them here. :D

Looks like a lovely part of the world, BG!

Hoping for a fab morning tomorrow - sun burning off the mist. Wish I knew what I was doing with a camera

Another nice sunset.

There's thin ice on the fjord, and boats have left tracks in it.

Continuing the ice theme:

26cm thick now, and starting to get pressure ridges at the edges.

Very nice, going for the arty and atmospheric approach. Changing the game compared to a phone camera.
I like the one with the moon, did you have to zoom in to make the moon appear so large? And is it through a filter?

Thanks. I experiment quite a lot - especially because there's so much beautiful stuff to photograph. They're all from my commute.

The moon one is slightly zoomed but most of the apparent size of the moon is atmospheric (I guess) - its been looking very big low in the sky. Not really any filter - a bit of blurring around the edge using Snapseed on the iPad - it's also heavily cropped. I'm slowly working out how the Samsung NX100 I bought works but it's all trial and error

I dont usually stop on the commute but seeing as I was already going snails pace, thought i'd try and capture the colours from the setting sun.
