      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Dry and Very Dusty!

Recommended Posts

Conditions couldn't have played out better that allowed this one to be captured! A couple of days ago my buddy Andre` were combing the countryside in search of a cougar that was sited. Upon happening down a very dry, dusty gravel road in Andre` pick-up truck, Andre` spots this old well pump just sitting there in the middle of a grain field. We stopped to investigate and to judge weather or not there would be a decent photo opp. As this was happening, huge amounts of dust caused by the pick-up started blanketing the field and the old pump. because of the very low angle of the sun I quickly realized that there was about to be a great photo opp...

I wasn't disappointed!

WOW! that is a sweet shot Stu. The photo alone is amazing. The story makes it even better.

Thank you for the comments!

I did look at cropping it, but I wanted to include the hydro pole shown in the distant left.

The cropped photo does work and still offers good composition! I feel that the vegetation located at the bottom of the pump does it some real justice too...

Awesome capture Stu. I like the 1st one the best as well. Sometimes less is more, but sometimes it's not.

As usual I go against the grain and prefer the second shot with out the powerline. Its a beautiful shot on its own and I don't care for the distraction of the pole of the background taking me away from the pump.

Really doesn't matter you've captured a winner with either shot!
