They are usually uploaded anonymously and so it is this time with photos showing riders very happy to be on the snow. It doesn’t have to be that way. Photographers can identify themselves and their subjects in the comments below the photos or just comment and stay anonymous. A few words to describe your photos can make them even more interesting. I’ve created a new gallery called 2017-2018 Season where these few photos could use some company. Upload at will with our upload link found here, on SmugMug and elsewhere on this site. It’s easy and the club pays for our SmugMug photo sharing site with your dues so you might as well get some use out of it! Here’s a sample.
This photo was just uploaded to our SmugMug site and I’ve added it to “Member Uploads.” It appears that Sno-Birds can have fun even off the snow but I’m only guessing because there was no comment to provide any information! Please, anyone can add some more info in the comments where ever you see this picture. It would be nice to share with other Sno-Birds what’s up. Was this a meeting?
Final Day of Season Photos
Riding was good to the end in Shrewsbury Sno-Birds’ high country. Several more photos taken on April 15th were submitted by Douglas. Be sure to read the comments Douglas has entered for his photos in SmugMug by clicking the cartoon balloon symbol to get the whole story. Douglas has uploaded enough photos so we could make his own gallery on our SmugMug. His photo above also links to his gallery on SmugMug. As a thank you to Douglas for sharing, we are featuring his photos in SmugMug’s new carousel display on our SmugMug homepage. Thank you, Douglas!
The mobile vision of our website has been active for a while now and I haven’t heard any complaints.You’ll have to view it with a smart phone to see it. Tablets are big enough to view the regular site. This may be news to some but is not the big news. The big news it that it is now easier than ever to upload your photos straight from your smart phone to our SmugMug site, no computer needed. This only makes sense because smart phones are often used as camera’s.
I just signed us up for a Twitter account. If you use twitter, please follow us and you’ll have links to our blog posts on twitter. Here is the link: twitter.com/snobirds. It seems fortunate that such a short handle as SnoBirds was waiting for us to grab up! You’ll see the new photo of Roy and the groomer. Oh sorry Roy, you and the groomer were mostly cropped off so just the grippy rubber tracks are left as a banner for our Twitter page. Find the originals on SmugMug. This image links there.
An anonymous person uploaded this great shot of the Stone House to our SmugMug site. We ask the photographer to use the comments under the photo to add some details to describe the photo. It looks like the end of a cloudy day but I’m only guessing.
Let this photo inspire you to upload your own photos from this past year. Also, some time ago, Roy sent out an invitation to upload any old time shots of snowmobiling you may have to go in the Photos from Years Past gallery. Now that you’ve put away your sled for the season, we hope you may have a chance to scan some of your favorites showing off sleds from a earlier time. So far the gallery only has shots of earlier grooming equipment. It really needs some sled shots.
Some nice end of season shots of this classic sled were submitted using our Upload Link. Clicking the photo will take you to the Guest Uploads gallery. Thanks to the photographer and please add your comments so we know who you are and what went on that day. It looks like it was a best of season day! Anyone wishing to add some more photos to our collection is still free to do so using our Upload Link. Thanks!
Copying and Sharing a Link from SmugMug
This business of sharing SmugMug photos is something anyone can do. You don’t have to be logged into SmugMug to see the Share options! You can share photos via email, text or blog. There are also options to share to your Facebook, Twitter and Google+ accounts.
Embedding a Link (for bloggers)
The trouble with the image above is that it isn’t linked to a larger version but everyone wants to see more detail because this size doesn’t show any. So to continue this photo test, instead of using just “get a link” I’m adding an embeddable link found while viewing the same photo on SmugMug.
