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.

    • You might try calling shorelandr.   When I called them (some years ago) they were very helpful.   Second choice would be take it to a good auto parts store.  I bet they can tell you what it is and sell you another.
    • B & B in Cloquet has whole porkbutt for $1.29 lb this week if you need to fill the freezer.
    • -----------------------   Some decoy porn for guys who can appreciate a hand carved bird.   
    • The first hand report from LOW is its very quiet up here. I was told there were redheads and cans on the bay last weekend. Not much moving here at all today. The marina mallards and even a few bluewings are still hanging around. But most of what was tolling the decoys this morning was buffleheads. Most birds in pairs or singles. No real flocks. Very little in the way of shooting by me or anyone else. 
    • might be the worst "tailgate shot" ever. 4-buffleheads and a ringer in there all cozied up together. 
    • Specks showed up on the the sodak border this morning. Wind forecast to turn north. Could bring some fun and be one of the first real duck migration days.
    • He hasn't insulted my peeps and me.   Ok, women, yes they have a beef.   Hispanics, nope. Illegal hispanics...oh boo hook you snuck in here or expired work visa and you push out a few puppies and now you crying about split families? If you gave 2 shiats about your family you would of filled out some paper work.   Muslims, self explanatory.    Everyone else, delicate sensibilities, entitlement and just flat out pussEcats.    
    • This election isn't about the GOP turning their backs on Trump.  The party was forced to go anti-Trump.  The man went out of his way to insult every group possible.  If you want people to vote for you, you don't insult them.      16 days, 14 hours and 34 minutes until this stupid election is over.
    • thx don.  so far only seeing bluejays and the male red bellied on the bungee corn.
