It took very little to actually get it running again - certainly a lot cheaper than replacing the motherboard. They replaced the CMOS battery and upgraded the BIOS. I still don't have a good explanation for what a hard lock is though. All they could tell me is that it had something to do with the electrical system - go figure.

Best wishes to you and yours for a happy and prosperous New Year.

Week 50 Hoar frost macro.


Hoar frost on the "fruit" of a wild cherry tree that grows in our back courtyard. The fruit doesn't all fall to the ground, nor does it always get eaten by birds. In this case, the withered and frozen remains of a cherry was covered in hoar frost, an occurrence that is not that common where I live as we don't often get enough humidity and cold together to give us a freezing fog/mist.

Shot with my 5D IV and a 100mm L IS lens. Processing was done in Lightroom Classic CC. The biggest problem I had in this image was trying to get as much as possible in focus shooting handheld. It was -8°C and I wasn't exactly dressed to utilize a tripod to give me a decent exposure combination for a better image - next time I will find a warmer jacket and a good toque.






As usual, relevant comments and questions are welcome.

Week 51 - Lily flower

This is my first attempt at focus stacking as this image is composed of 7 images shot at different focal points and combined in Photoshop to render the entire flower in focus.

Shot with my Canon 5D IV and a 100mm L IS lens. Processing was in Lightroom Classic CC and Photoshop 20.0.1.



As usual, relevant comments and questions are welcome.

Week 52 - Canada Geese in Flight.

We have had a very mild winter and the rivers have not frozen over. As long as they don't freeze over, there is food for the Geese and some tend to hang around throughout the winter.

Shot with my 5DIV and a 24-105II L IS lens. Processing was done in Lightroom Classic CC.

This is my last image for the "2018" 52 week project and is my last 52 week project. I do not always have the time during a week and I would like to post my images in more relevant forums where I will get different feedback.

A nice image of the Canada Geese in flight WG.

I like the snowy Rocky mountain peaks showing near the bottom of your shot.

Thanks wolf. Yes, it is hard to believe that there is so much snow in the Rockies close by and we have had very little so far this winter.
