    One of our local Church's produced a snow hill and the kids loved it.:)

    A6000 and 50mm SEL. I continue to be amazed at the lightning fast AF and tracking on this A6000. ;)

    Looks like a lot of fun!

    Out of interest, how does one 'produce a snow hill'!?

    Reminds me of Xmas 2010 here, me and my best friend on a tractor inner tube :)

    Ya, we are having a little bit of a cool spell with temps in the low 60°s all week. We even occasionally have 80° Christmas Days.

    Hmmmm . . . go sledding in shorts, and you don't have to drive in the snow. Somehow seems wrong. ;) I did notice some people in jackets or pullovers. At 60F this time of year, we'd be sweating. Goes to show how we all get used to different things.

    It's pretty funny. 60° hits and people are pulling out winter parkas.
