    Christmas night

    Christmas night. I'm not much of a photographer, and obviously my old digital camera doesn't do some of the things that some of you do, but I loved this view. I really thought I would hear something about this sight on the news that night, but never did. Does anyone know which planet this might have been?

    The planet in the picture is....................

    Saturn! On 12/31/03 it was the closest it has been to earth in 26 years. I just happened to read an article in the San Diego paper about it. It won't be this close again for a long time. The article said it would be perfect for viewing because of the tilt which showed the rings off to the max. Needless to say I found myself out here without access to a pair of binoc's or telescope!....I did have it pictured in my mind however.

    Harry,

    WOW, I wish I had looked at it on New Year's Eve. It was incredibly bright on Christmas night, and of couse it would have been almost a half moon on New Year's Eve. I bet it was spectacular.

    Thanks for the info.

    Diane,
    Great picture! You should add it to the Optiphotographers thread!

    Actually I think it is time to start a winter 2004 thread.

    Cindy,

    That would work for me. Maybe a moderator would move it.

    This is one house in Sudbury, MA ! This street has 5 or 6 homes like this and other 5 or 6 that have about half as many lights. Most of the homes are valued over 1 million$$$$. They do this every year!

    wow, Mikef, that is a lot of lights!

    We have a tacky lights tour here in VA every year and they publish it on the news and in the paper and I try to see as many as possible.

    What is this? Well, every day I drive across Tampa Bay on my way to and from work (very therapeutic- except when traffic is bad). The sunset is usally framed in my rearview mirror (when I get out of work before 7)...

    Having the T-tops off in January is still pretty novel for this Pennsylvania boy! Life is good...

    Pete, I see Santa got you a new bike for Christmas complete with streamers. It's red; I would have figured you as more of a black and yellow kind of guy.

    Actually, that's a bright PINK bike for little Sara (who shows me every new trick she learns on it). Her old bike with the training wheels has been donated to GoodWill... Seems like yesterday I was putting that first bike together...

    Cindy,
    You can spend Christmas at the Hanlins anytime!


    Here's a picture I took one evening when I was taking off from Atlanta. I fly a lot, but I never get tired of looking at the clouds... The interesting thing about this scene (to me) is that it was really stormy on the ground. Once you pop up above the clouds, though, everything is calm and beautiful!

    Don't mean to post so many pics, but this one is interesting for two reasons...

    First, that is our German Shepherd Dog (Duke) enjoy his favorite activity- which is laying around doing nothing (for a dog that's so lazy, he manages to get hair all over the place!).

    Second, I constructed that mantle myself about a month ago (I'll post a tiny picture to show what the fireplace looked like before). I drew a rough outline sketch on a piece of paper, bought some lumber, and- if I do say so myself- it came out not too shabbily!

    Thumbs up

    Wow, big improvement; someone's been watching Trading Spaces and While You Were out.

    That's a pretty nice looking job you did there. :)
