send some of that our way please! It's raining like mad here, but no snow anywhere; and that's the worst when it's grim, dark, ugly and miserable outside, but snowboarding season isnt even close to starting yet.

The tracks are from our tractor actually, I wanted to take the photo without the tracks, but my dad had just been driving there before.
I walk on foot :D

Oxenkiller: Hehe, I know all about that, we have had so much rain too the last months, or well, the whole year actually. So the snow is very welcome now.

Will post some more later tonight.

Taken yesterday. Pretty tough to show temperature, but this is what truly desperate cold looks like. Despite knowing how to dress, my nose and a few fingers were frost nipped in the 7 or 8 minutes I was out of the car. -54 degrees.

-54?? WTF, I checked the forecast for various cities in Alaska and the coldest I saw was still "just" -33 Celsius... o_O Where do you live, Boreal?
Edit: not calling you a liar, btw... I saw this, haha, ouch.


Those are some really awesome pics though!

I LOVE the fourth one.

Yeah, coldest official temp I saw that day was -47 (Fahrenheit), but some friends on that side of town said their thermometer went to -54, so I went with it :D The temps here do vary a lot over short distances because of the temperature inversion, elevation, ect. A gust of wind will raise the temperature 20 degrees - kinda weird. If anybody's curious, the record low for this general region is -82, from just across the border in the Yukon. Don't think it's ever been past -70 here in town though.

I'm in a little place called Delta, about 100 miles southeast of Fairbanks, Alaska.

That.... is.... so awesome.... ;_;

Makes my pics from Yellowstone seem bland and banal. Holy crap were those bears fairly close, or do you have an amazing zoom on your camera?

No way, south island's the shit. I'll make it down there one of these years; opposite seasons are very attractive.. And yes, that Sockeye was at the end of its run - not actually very tasty, but cool looking at least.

In early winter, bald eagles gather on a few northern rivers that have late season salmon runs. That pic was from a month or so ago near Haines, in southeast AK. I guess they just arrived along the Fraser, Nooksack, and Skagit Rivers down in Washington, but not as dense I don't think.

Morrigan, I liked your Yellowstone pictures. I was there years ago, but only for a couple days. I can't remember why I don't have any pictures - it's a fascinating place. Almost hate to admit it, but the bears were both photographed from my truck window. They love the cleared roadsides in spring. I wish I had a pic of the bear that was ripping apart our neighbors' (vacant) tent at a bluegrass festival last summer. Not something you want to see first thing in the morning, hungover, and not wearing clothes..

Awesome pictures, Boreal. They radiate professionalism and make us hobbyists look bad so please don't post again.

Just kidding, moar!

Yes it is, I have just recently got back from a two week self-driven tour of the south island, and will post the pictures when I'm finished uploading them all. All I can say about the south NZ island is :o :love: :bow:

I WILL be going back.

Right. Here is some of the pictures I took on our glorious New Zealand south island holiday. We started in Christchurch, going west to Greymouth through Arthur's Pass, then down the west coast, stopping at Fox Glacier, Hokitika, Queenstown, Te Anu, Glenorchy (to sample the bloody epic Routeburn track), Mt Cook, Dunedin and Purakanui Bay. In all we traveled almost 3000klm with "sunny" our faithful erm... Nissan Sunny. The south island of this nation holds some of the most beautiful and stunning landscape I have ever seen. There are quite a lot so they will be in the spoiler tag, and I'm sorry but they're all in a random order.

Thanks mate, very sad to have left. I would happily move there, as there is so much to do, hiking, fishing, photography etc and the place is really quite chill. The place is simple awe inspiring.

Whoops! :oh shit:

Thanks! Went on the glow worm tour down there at Lake Te Anau. Interesting facts on the lake: it's fresh water (apparently you can drink it straight from the lake), and it's the biggest south island glacial lakes and is over 400m deep at it's deepest point.
