Winter 2011 Show Your Photos.

Tue Feb 01, 2011 5:34 pm

Well, it snowed and rained a bit in the DFW area, overnight (2/1/11).
Parking lot at my apartment complex has a layer of ice.
I was going out and take pictures, but it ain't worth risk driving.
Oh well. Here are some pix.

Came across this fallen tree recently.



I have never seen frozen tree resin before, and it looks as if the tree was vomiting.

This was right outside my window in the hostel I am staying in. More surprising as it backs on the the airport perimeter fence!

There were three altogether and I managed a few shots before they went and hid behind a bunch of trees

Because you neither linked to pictures (but html-sides) nor did you use the correct BB-code (no end tag).
Nice pics, though.

Dammit, I followed the destructions and it still didn't work. Oh well, some of us are destined to be computer illiterate i guess.

Your end tag should have the slash / included.

That is freaking cool!

Here are my contribution - I uploaded the first one for screening, but dunno if it will make it....and I don't have the original file on this computer (was taken 1/30/11):



2nd one isn't great quality (was from my cellphone in a moving car) but I happen to like it:

That is seriously cool stuff, never seen that before.

Here are a few of mine, though the first three snuck in from just before new year, but the winter bit of the description is still accurate, so forgive me please!

No luck this time either Skids   I feel your pain because I'm probably even worse at linking and showing pics. From another

As said before, you need to link to pictures, not websites hosting pictures.

The suffix for pictures is usually .jpg or .png. Your link looks like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/andymarks/5381269781/in/photostream

Where's the image-suffix? That's not a picture but a website that displays your images.
For obvious reasons, Flickr makes it a little difficult to hotlink to pictures.
Here's the full URL/address to one of your pictures:

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5005/5381269781_d0effc6bbd.jpg

So 5381269781_d0effc6bbd.jpg would be the picture, and http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5005/ the address where the picture can be found. Now you can use the Image-tag to hotlink to your pictures by using the full URL mentioned in the paragraph above. That is, if Flickr allows hotlinking pictures and don't replace them with placeholders.
So why all the hassle? Just provide the link to your site on Flickr, and let people see your pictures there. That's a simple copy&paste from the browser's address field:
