So we were having a nice warm winter this year, but yesterday it decided to drop about a foot of snow on top of us. I thought it was going to melt so I went outside at about 9:00 to snap some photos (in a T-shirt, very Canadian :-O)

Only two of the photos are really worth showing (shot with a 40mm nikkor macro lens):

Then tonight I noticed that the moon was very pretty. So I had to go snap some pics (also very cold...) Only one of these turned out and that was only after heavy editing. My camera had some trouble coping with the bright spot.

Shot on an 18-105 nikkor lens at 105mm at 2 second exposure with the flash set to "slow":

Thanks for looking!

Calling all astronomy buffs!

What is the "star" in the bottom left corner of this image. Is it a planet? It should be venus, jupiter or mercury, anyone know which?

EDIT: Photo was taken on the twenty fifth of February.
