Took this photo as I was leaving for work this morning at about 6:50am, the sky was nice and colorful and the snow had a neat amber tint to it from the street light nearby.

I caught a glimpse of the lonely mailbox nearly buried in snow from my morning snow blowing and thought I'd snap a shot of it to capture the moment to look back on when it's 90 degrees out this summer.

Shot was hand held out my Suburban's window with a 2 second exposure on 200 ISO, f/5.6 (all of which would have made me go 'huh' 2 days ago).

No post processing was done, but I may crop it a bit so the mailbox is more within the rule of 3rd's, right now I think it's just to the right of where it needs to be.

I think I'll stick with SmugMug, MyPhotoAlbum is too confusing when it comes to sharing images.

Thanks!

I had the camera in my hands and my elbows resting on the window opening to help steady the camera... kind of a spur of the moment thing. :D

Nice job.. I would never be able to do that! I can't even get a 1/10s shot clear if I am resting against something... Maybe its the caffeine I drink... Going through 5 to 6 mountain dews a day with monster energy drinks occasionally I think my shaky hands are something I will have to live with...
