    Here are a few winter shots with the S2:

    Some minor editing has been done. I used the snow setting for
    some of them. This seems to boost red and yellow quite a bit. (In
    some instances highlights were over exposed as well.) A person could
    do the same with more control by adjusting colour balance in an
    editor. I didn't notice at first but the camera defaults to a lower
    quality setting in scene mode.

    Bricks or roses; whatever you got, hurl it. Some central
    horizon stuff there.

    Nice photos. But why would anyone want to live where it snows?

    Lots of reasons:
    We can bitch about heating bills instead of AC bills.
    No hurricanes, typhoons, scorpions, and very few snakes.
    Going on a trip to a warm climate in the winter has extra merit.
    And the most important reason, we can take pictures in the fresh snow.

    Let's see, we got no AC bills, very few hurricanes, scorpions are not
    all that bad, we have no snakes and we can photograph snow on the
    mountains without getting into it.

    I think this is my last winter if not the second. I am going to North
    Carolina! I won't miss the snow!

    I hope you realize my post was tongue in cheek Scott.

    Hmm.... that gives pause for thought. How about:

    1. Better beaver trapping.
    2. Snowballs can be stored outside conserving valuable freezer
    3. Doggy doo shows up and can be avoided.
    4. Provides a medium for artistic expression while urinating.
    5. Toboggans slide easier.
    6. Provides graphic illustration of the phrase, "Your eyes
    look like two piss holes in the snow". :)

    Apart from that I really am at a blank. ;-)
