Found these two for a last minute shot. One is from the big ice storm we had in Dec. '08. The other is a pic of snow on a sunny day.

Wow, That little icicle even shows the way the wind was blowing that day.
A lot of fine entries captured this week.

havalotta, i am notorious for not reading carefully and for not following these kinds of conversations.

At the same time:

"you" is a bit unclear--it could've been that Hedgerowe was being reprimanded for saying "you (dapjwy) didn't stand a chance" (Not that I would expect that from her; she strikes me as a sweet person.)

OR, I could be responding because you stated

It was just you getting cirrus about viewing those weird wispy clouds and getting a few more photos in before the sun, Hmmmm I mean the moon sets over the contest tomorrows eve. So tell us....
Yes, I've been hibernating a little bit Havalota. I also needed some time to sort and organize all my photos.

Is that a faint sun in post 326 or a reflection upon your lens?
I think it might be a reflection on the lens, not sure tho.

Quote:
How about that sun dog photo in the same post....We've always heard you should NOT take photos into the sun.... Can anyone tell us WHY?
Because you will melt like the wicked witch of the west?? Just kidding, I really don't know the answer to that question.

Quote:
Has post 327 been stretched a bit?
The wide photo in post 327 was taken with the stitch feature in my camera. It takes multiple shots of a wider area and puts them together. It was the first time I attempted to take a photo with the stitch feature.

Dapjwy I can see y the u was misunderstood and YES you are certainly included in the "everyone" stands a chance phrase.
The sun shines just as brightly upon you as it does on all the rest.

Boo Boo...
If this wicked witch has a meltdown of some sort who will funnel through all the photos I've saved and present the super cell of a grand finale to the winners?

Carry on one and all.... There's still time left to post a winning meteorological photo.

Oops! Missed my reprimand. Please accept my apology, havalotta! One does not wish to inflame the judge.

But I do take issue with your assertion that everyone stands the same chance. That can only be true if you are using the dartboard method of selection (which, if I were judge, would mean that the floorboards would be the clear winner). Even the guest judges for the snag contest, the lovely and fluffy chickens, were more discriminating than that! Once the entries were spread out on the ground for them, they pecked at some photos far more than others.
