Silhouettes at Dawn...

6 posts in this topic

Early this morning I stopped by "Lower Fort Garry", also known as the "Stone Fort" because tis entire outer walls were contructed of three foot thick limestone! Today it is a national treasure and museum and see's in excess of 130,000 visitors each summer. There was a thick blanket of fog covering the landscape which in the end made for some interesting subjects to shoot.

The "stone fort" was built along the banks of the Red River back in 1836. The once great "Hudon's Bay Company" built the fort and was intended to be used as a local fur trading post.

They have some interesting exibits which are located outside the walls of the fort such as an Indian village which was common sight back in the day.

Thanks, glad you liked them. For the record, all images here were captured on Canon's 50D and a 17-40mm L series lens.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
