Lovely pictures, made me shiver just looking at such cold!
Not living in a cold enough environment to see things like this, how does this form, is it snow that melts but not far enough to fall off or is it Freezing fog or something else that causes it?
Oceo, nice pics, like the cat surrounded by snow!
DJD, great shot, we know people are looking out for the birds, but thawing the feeder every couple of hours is dedication.
All others, well done great pics, thanks.

I'm looking at getting a backup to my 6D, and also something the family can share.
Depends on your family :-> ... if they aren't the p&s type definitely get the 40d as this is the lowest dslr level with a competent usability (top lcd, back dial, overall size, menu options) ... and the 40D runs Magic Lantern so you can use all the goodies like focus stacking, focus peaking, timelapses, auto iso and whatnot.
I have a simple non-chipped adaptor for 40 Euro. Some experiences:
- Using manual is a pain because the exposure simulation doesn't work. With Av mode everything is o.k.
- Manual focus is easy with 5x or 10x magnification but not for moving subjects. Just focusing via the excellent display is possible (by focusing back and forth and minimizing the intervals).
- Quality of the old lenses is mediocre compared to the new lenses I use on the 600D (3.5 50 macro, 4.0 17, 2.5 135, 4.0 200). Just the 1.4 50 mm chrome ring is an exception. I am really impressed by the clarity of the images. See the example below. The center strip (2nd image in my post) is a 100% view:
Buydig via eBay is selling the Rokinon/ 14mm f/2.8 for $275.
I don't believe those are 2200 mAh and I don't like batteries which someone sells with different charger (usually they are NOT decoded and the camera does not show battery level).
I got 2 of this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2Pcs-Full-Coded-1250mAh-LP-E12-Battery-for-Canon-EOS-M-Camera-Show-Battery-Level-/170895464586?pt=Batteries_Chargers&hash=item27ca29d88a
They are working fine, I don't see any difference with the original battery.
