    Last shot, the clouds are really Ice clouds. The outside temp. when we started was -37 without the wind-chile factor that in and it was -42. Here in Maine we call the effect Sea Smoke or Ice Smoke.

    Something about the colours is really off-putting

    Hi All,

    I think I should have taken off my Polor Filter it might have helped with the color contrast.

    All and All considering the weather conditions I think I got some good shots.

    I like the first one, tho, you're right, I think a little more contrast would help. The second one I think needs cropped down a bit off of both the bottom and the top. Too much dead space. Nice pictures, tho. They are really ICE clouds???

    The first two don't catch my eye. But the third one is amazing. The stark colors and the bleek landscape make for one terrific photo.

    Hi All,

    Thanks for the kind words,

    I live and work right here in downtown Portland Me.

    The third shot is of the outer channal marker leaving the South Entrance of the Harbor, the floating object is the Marker its self, there is a bell that rings.

    Yes they are Ice Clouds it only happens when the weather is below -20 the warm air off the Ocean causes this effect it only happen once and awhile.

    Cheers
