Busy morning in Coal Harbour

The self propelled barge "Sea Romer" in the foreground and the 54' landing craft "Aqua Totem" in the background nosed up to the old Air Force Seaplane Ramp in Coal Harbour. Though both vessels are a common sight around here it's not very often you see them both at the ramp at the same time...

2 min. Exposure.

These shots captured around 4-5 PM, and this is a peak hour for the tourist coming out of the museum.  I did tried to eliminated people in my shot by shooting with a big stopper -10 EV, -3 EV, and -3 GND filters.  On the first photo, there are a few people walking in-front of my camera during shutter open for 2 min.

7 maybe more...

The original picture was severely backlit so I gave it the once over in Photoshop to recover some details from the darkest areas. Only trouble is now I can't decide just how many Eagles are in this picture...

Morning on the lake Take Two

This is another morning shot from our trip to Minnesota. I really loved all of the lakes up that way.

Foggy morning at Quatse Lake

A couple of experimental pictures with the new cell phone a couple of days ago. Still doesn't hold a candle to a proper camera but it's getting closer!

City Lights

This was taken the same night as the last photo I posted but I turned the camera back towards the south.

The orange glow is from the lights of Duluth, MN about 70 miles away from where this shot was taken.

Who sang that song?? Surely somebody besides me is old enough to remember.

And no cheating by looking it up on Google!

Crawling on the forest floor

There's fungus among us!

It looked like a little critter had been digging out around this one for some reason. Maybe a mouse needed an umbrella.

I have found at my age that the hardest thing about getting shots from ground level is trying to get back up off the ground!

S'More Light

There's nothing like sitting by a fire on a cool evening with good friends and enjoying the night sky.

The only thing that makes it better is chocolate!

It rained!

A lot! 

The first day we were there they got two inches of rain in two hours. Needless to say the creeks and rivers were running.

The rest of the time we were there the sun was out and the temperatures were in the 70's. Just the way I like it!
