A great way to greet the day!

With my new 100-400 L series lens, I slipped out the door this morning at 4:00 am headed for the south west shores of Lake Winnipeg. It's only a 20 min. drive from our home and I was hoping to capture a few sunrise photo's or two. As it turned out, I wasn't to be disappointed! I spent 1-1/2 hours walking along the lake shore and these are just some of the results.



This is how it all began. The small dots on the distant horizon are actually pelicans.


A multitude of birds were beginning to start their day off including the pelcans who are very abundant in the region.



NO, this is not the dorsal fin of a skark, in fact, its actually a common carp surfacing...I had no idea that I had captured it until after I downloaded the pic's!




This appears to be a black capped turn, it's definately not a gull...


Last one...

Very nice! I really like the footprints, and the second sunrise shot is my favorite!

Very nice. I agree about the second sunrise shot, also love the last one.

Beautiful morning. I hate to get up early, but love to be up to see this kind of show.

    • better late than never!!  so far it's not to late any way!
    • I'm curious about the GenieJar.  Looks like there is a 30oz and a 17oz version.  I wonder how it works in fairly cold weather.  The nice thing about styrofoam is that it insulates against the entire water mass freezing into a minnow-sicle.  I wonder if they recommend throwing it inside your jacket or something. 
    • Agreed. I am getting nervous about the state of out financial situation now, well, I guess getting MORE nervous. Toward the back end of the contract Parise's deal isn't so bad since it was front loaded, but the term is so long. IMO we cannot afford any more buyouts. Pominville is such a buzzkill. Koivu has really played great the last 1 plus this year. No, he isn't going to win many races for the puck, but as long as he isn't on the top line I am OK with that. Staal is doing a little better than I had hoped I guess. I was hoping just for solid play, but there have been a few games where he and Coyle we so strong on the puck the opposition couldn't get control of it.
    • Hey Star, I wouldn't leave the fan there. It's going to get really HOT and will melt ! Move it to the bottom of the cabinet just left of the gas valve and have it blowing up so it pushes the heat out the vents on the top half of the heater.
    • I agree with the backing for the fly line.  Never had any problems and the stuff seems to get better with age.
    • Best thing I've found is backing for fly line.  It has no memory and virtually no knots.  It's better situated for rattle wheels because of the physical size of the backing but I've not had any problems yet with my Frabil tip-ups.  Deepest water we fish in is only 30' with normal depth of around 12'.  Our local Runnings sells 50 yard segments for like $3 each in any color. 
    • The next year my Mom and Dad cooked the turkey in one of those white roasters and it was awesome.  So I told her that too.  Big time.  It was nice and juicy too.
    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy.
