    I really like that Piter, really evocative shot. Was it hard to get the glow of the watch to come out with the lamp light behind it? I imagine that the exposure would be all over the place.
    Just looking at it reminds me of relaxing in camp after dark when the work of the day is done. Very relaxing.

    Thanks! In fact it was not that hard... all you need is careful composition and a piece of black card (sometimes shaped to comply with your composition). Ever heard about Black Card Photography? It applies not only to landscape...

    I had heard about it, but never tried it. Then again I only have a wee compact camera these days. Stunning result though. Thanks for the reply and explanation. Really like that picture.

    Is it a dog? I thought it was a fluffy cat? Mr Blue Train will have to let us know.:eek:

    Our Maine Coon cat looks like no dog I've ever seen.

    We had a heavy late winter snow last Sunday night. My wife sent me an e-mail the other morning mentioning she had seen deer tracks in our back yard (we've even seen deer tracks in the snow on our deck). So when I got home that evening, I looked out the window to see the tracks and noticed the deer down at the edge of our property, which is sort of in the woods. One of the deer had only one antler. I often see deer back in the woods but not so often from the house. I brought the cat in to see and he didn't notice them at first, then his ears perked up.

    One Sunday afternoon a year or two ago, someone knocked on our door and informed us there was a deer in our side yard that had been hit by a car. I went to see and sure enough, there was one there. I think it had two broken hips. Animal control came and a young woman about my daughter's age killed it with two shots from a .22 rifle. She left the carcass lying in the creek just beyond where you can see the deer in the photo. Inside of a week it had been picked clean.

    Wow that was a quick response sir. Thought it was a "Puddy Tat!" Quite a breed the MCC. How big is he by the way, I've heard the can get very big.

    Window's can be great for pets. I used to joke that my French doors were "doggy TV" as my JRT used to sit and stare for ages at the birds and other stuff out there. Though looking like one of those toy "Garfields" stuck to the pane when his doggy Nemesis passed.

    Well, he's an indoor cat, and we've had him for at least ten years. He might be a little overweight but I don't think he weights over fifteen or twenty pounds. He likes to sleep on his back.

    By the way, I posted a picture of myself in that thread under Bushcraft chatter. I don't like to sleep on my back, however.
