    Yeah, my batteries died five minutes after I reached the destination of my two mile walk in the cold. =( lol, what a bummer.

    Anyway, here's what I did get.

    I learned that I my batteries only die on me when I have an important shoot.... but I dont realize untill I am there... I always carry extras now....
    but looks like you had some good shots befor they died. I love b&w when shooting snow. I dig the contrast.

    Nice series Jon. Dig the tones in #2 with the little bit of white snow on the right side to offset the rest of the image :thumbup:

    I like the tones also... My favorites are the 2nd & last. I know how hard it is to take pics of snow - these came out very well!

    yeah, batteries dont tend to hold a charge very well in the cold, if you stick the battery in your warm pocket when not in use, that will help a bunch

    Nice shots! And thanks for reminding me to go recharge the spare battery (now) that I emptied at Cathedral Caverns the other day!

    Nice work. Don't feel bad about the batteries, not once but twice this year I have driven quite a distance to shoot, only to get there and realize that I left all my memory cards at home:grumpy: Not bad I thought I could still shoot 35mm film in my spare SLR body, you guessed it I had a bunch of empty cans and no film:lmao:

    Well, as it seems, you still made the most of the five minutes that you had with your batteries still working, eh? My favourite here is your second photo! I really like what you did to it. I have grown quite fond of this soft toning action of late!

    I realised my batteries don't like the cold, either. Now my camera is small, so I usually "insulate" the battery compartment with my hand now, and keep the little camera in my hand also when I put it into my pocket (it is small enough to easily go into my anorak pocket), and the flashing "empty batteries"-sign has stopped flashing even and the camera kept on working for yet another while. Not that my hands could re-charge the batteries... now THAT would be something, but I think only Hertz could do THAT ;) ... but they stayed in working order another (probably longer) while.
