Merry Merry

Casa de Sands

Being away for the holidays means celebrations come late at our house. Tonight, we had my Wife's family over and it was a nice evening with a few too many bottle of "Merry Merry" to go around.
I think I am over snow now. Once is enough. We can gladly go back to 65 and sunny till June. However, the snow pack does a splendid job at chilling my beverages and to add the festive mood- back lit by LED bulbs. Yeah- it was a good night.

* I forgot HOW much noise in any camera outside my D800. (it is now on it's way in for repair/replacement) My D300 at ISO 1250 is like the 800 at 6400.... Miss it already.

other sizes: small medium original

I know what you mean. I've been thinking that I should perhaps be looking at one of the newer Canons with substantially better high ISO performance than the 40D, though any noise in this one is pretty well masked by the texture of the snow anyway. The backlighting was an inspired idea.
