First days of Winter and Snow (IMGS)

Fair warning in advance: this is a multi-camera thread, with images not only made with Olympus E-3 and E-5, but also with MicroFT E-M5.  If you are allergic to that, please turn elsewhere...

Everything has turned back to normal by now (rain on autumn colours), but last week we enjoyed a few short days of wintery atmosphere and just enough snow to make the parks look different without being a nuisance.

We made a walk on the first day of (light) snow, with the E-M5 and µFT12-50 and FT70-300 lenses.

And then another walk on the second day of heavier snow, with E-3 and E-5 and FT12-60 and FT50-200 lenses, to avoid swapping lenses in adverse weather conditions.

Here is a gallery of both days (including also some Iphotography from day three):

Some sample images (C&C always welcome):

There is always some small wildlife roaming the park, but it is easier to spot against snow...

Thanks for looking.  Comments welcome.

If there are technical or gear questions, feel free to ask.
