Welcome to The Week That Was, episode 60, Thanksgiving Edition. I'm your host for the week and welcome everyone to share a glimpse of your daily lives, captured by you and your camera. It is not just about putting up your best images of the week, but also about revealing the moments of your lives that you have thought to save, moments with family, loved ones, pets, the workplace, travel, etc.

The usual rules can be found here:
friendlyphotozone.com/component/kunena/5...idelines%29?Itemid=0

Let's run this until midnight your time on Saturday, Nov 26th. An extra 3 pics for holiday-themed images.

Here are some snaps to get us rolling:



The original pano is 500MB and huge, but here is a reasonably sized enlargement:

Sunday morning at the windfarm was a bust because the clouds covered everything. Then while driving home, I noticed a pink glow in one spot off in the distance. I got out and zoomed in just in time to see the sun for a couple minutes before it disappeared again.



I know, not my usual look, but you'll at least recognize the bridge, lol. This was a scouting test for a future return visit using the 9-stop ND filter at night. This place gets so dark, if you didn't come early and compose the shot, you won't see nuttin' later.

Go get 'em!

Wow, am I glad you're hosting this week. I'm sure that first shot is a screenshot from a movie anyway. ;)

Working on some pumpkin bread pics for Tim as I type.

It is fantastic!
I'm using it as the background on my PC. Hope you don't mind. :-)

As promised, the pumpkin bread photos:

Rising


Ready!


I wish I had taken the time to take more photos of the process, but I didn't think of it until I had already cleaned up. I'll know for next time I guess.

It did turn out tasty. Was that more the type of DOF you were mentioning a couple weeks ago?

Yes, I think the DOF of those shots works a lot better.

The contrast seems just right to me Pablo.
That looks like a very pedestrian city. I like it!

Rosemary .... Oh my goodness!
She looks amazing!
