    ...but in this wilderness I lost my polarizer the other day, and all my searching for it yesterday was in vain... :grumpy:

    (I took these yesterday after I had searched the area high and low, with no success ... and as soon as the ground will be unfrozen again, it will be all swampy, too swampy to even set foot in there, and my polarizer will sink into the mud... :cry: )


    I took these on the day I lost it:

    Riverbank-impressions, and I KNOW I still had it when I took these.

    And in here it might have gone...

    When I repacked the camera once back at the car it was gone.... whuuaaaaah :cry:

    No, I did NOT.
    And won't.
    Today it snowed all over this (including my polariser). Once we'll get a thaw, it will sink into the mud. :cry: :cry: :cry:

    Sorry about the polarizer - but Fate has a good point (well maybe not the alien part :) ) Just think in hundreds of years time, your polarizer could be an artefact found in an archeological dig! Their understanding of our age will be increased because of it!!

    No kidding, my mother always says she wants to be buried and not cremated because she wants archeologists to be able to find out things about us from her :shock: :)

    If it were the X-Files, wouldn't be more likely that the aliens would ahve discovered the polarizer 1000 years AGO in that weird time distortion kind of thing?

    Corinna, I'm sorry to hear about the filter, but you still take good shots, and you can head over to B&H when you're in NYC and pick up a new one!

    I think that'll make them super confused!! Why would there be a polarizing filter in the middle of a swampy area!

    That is true. (Thanks for the "good pictures" remark, by the way, I feel sooooo bad about my own photography, actually, yet again...). And the best thing will be: I'll be there with my husband (and his purse) by my side... :biggrin:

    (Only does he still not know that I lost it. Likewise he still does not know that I once got my car thoroughly stuck in a quagmire in the woods and needed the help of a farmer's tractor to get me out from there, so please no one ever mention this when we meet, eh!?)

    BubblePixel, you like that little group of trees on the river banks? Thank you.
    I have sad news for you: this morning all I saw were stumps and felled trees in their place... :(
    Someone's out and about cleaning up the wilderness on the river banks, and these seemed to ... be ... in ... the ... way :cry: ...
