My wife was doing a vintage event today so I ventured into town with the GF1+20mm lens.
A couple of frosty days in the local area.

Cirencester at night.
D700+24mm at 1600ASA hand held images of some of the windows and the market place, too cold for people to stay around too long though and no snow..........yet!
Took a walk in our local park today with my wife Sheila, it was cold, clear and very crisp so took the D700+300mm f4 IF ED lens - had to push the ISO high and for some of them up to 3200 but the D700 handled it well.
I was on the way home and passed this favourite shot of mine, saw the mist and the faint moon through the trees so had to get the shot - only had the GF1 + 20mm lens but it did a fantastic job of capturing the scene as I saw it.
This was taken near Poulton and the sun just illuminated the colour in the trees and the drive.
Sunset at the Lakes.
We had a beautiful sunset at the lakes tonight so I managed to grab a couple of images I am happy with, the swans in the first image made it for me.
Sheila took me here today to see the colours, started off overcast & dull and rapidly turned to a very fine and continuous rain so camera kit got a good soaking but kept on going (Thank you Nikon)
South Cerney lakes.
This is a view of the Watermark Club taken on a cold & overcast day.

I spent a few hours in Gloucester taking some street shots then ventured to the docks.
This Photographer was not having a good day even though he had a pretty model, he could not get the height he needed, then he untaped his light stand from the pole and it blew over and broke the umbrella stem - he then gave it up for a bad job and went for a coffee - I did manage to grab these 3 images though.
This gent looks very much like Tommy Lee Jones - the film star
