Here's one more from my local forest in Pilsbach, Austria. Taken just before the sun went down; I liked those sun rays fighting their way through the gentle mist and making such long shadows on the floor. Seems to give it a more 3D feeling. Hope you like it too.

Happy New year to everyone!

Btw, on my new web site I just added a gallery with some shots from my home town if anyone wants to see some more. (link below)

Hi fireplace33 (Trevor):

I took your invitation and spent 30 minutes on your new photography website, it is simply beautiful and filled with wonderful images. A few of them I have seen displayed here in this thread, lovely work, thanks for sharing!

Happy New Year and all the best in 2014,

Rudy

Thanks for looking, it was a lot of hard work but also fun to make that website. Glad you liked it
When posting here on DPR the images are somehow short lived; soon disappearing off the first page, but they all stay collected in one place on such a website. Even if the guestbook is still feeling a bit lonely

After some mild weather this red tailed hawk put on quite a show as he found the voles to be easy pickings for a little mid-afternoon snack.

Re: flaps down...

Nice shot Jim.  It was a pleasure to meet you and put a face to the name.  I can't believe I'm going to say this but I want the snow back so I can return to try and capture some great shots like yours.

thanks Rudy, daRRski, Rich...

Perhaps this is the winter for these guys Rudy. Funny, I used to take Great Greys for granted - they would come down every four years or so, and I would get my shots - but I haven't got a decent shot since D70 days. Glad to see that you're taking advantage of the opportunity. Nice to meet you parkie. Oddly, you and Rudy are the only DPReview posters I've run into in the field in the past couple of years. And yes, we need snow.

Offering...

... Albertan willing to trade snow for sun.

... Every morning I wake up, look outside at another dark gray day where any possible photography will be a desperate juggling of ISO, aperture, and shutter speed... and think "Seriously?".

icy engagement self portrait

Me and my sweetie got engaged on Christmas eve. On Friday we drove to Michigan where they had been hammered by an ice storm, which, while troublesome for those who lost power, was extremely beautiful, especially when the sun would peek through the clouds and light it up. This photo is literally taken along the side of the road with my camera on my suitcase.

This is a good image. Looks like you were thinking about your compositon and captured well.

A couple of the snow owl images in the entrys look overblown, the detail in their feathers fading into the snow. But, don't mean to knock anyone, must make an effort to make an entry myself. Regards to all.

Thank you Tusk.  And, I like the four letter, two number format of your name.  You are new, at least from the count of your posts, so you may not know that negative comments are not permitted on the Weekly Contest thread.  One of the bylaws.  The purpose of that rule is to let people feel free to post images without fear of critique.  So, we all just go out, take pics, and share what we think is our finest.

Re: Whatchyou call me??

... Draacor: I remember seeing an Alaska Park ranger asked "Of all the animals, which is your favorite?" His answer was squirrels.

... And, your's is great. Looks half fox.
