Wounded skies

12 posts in this topic

With all the late evening thunderstorm activity this last week and all of us posting images, I thought I'd throw a couple more into the mix.

Miners Lake dwarfed by the sky

Canon 30D, Canon 17-40 f4L at 17mm, iso100, 1/6 at f22, handheld and braced

Into a troubled sky (actually, the storm had passed, the winds had dropped, and there were blue skies within a few miles)

Canon 30D, Canon 70-200 f2.8L at 120mm, iso100, 1/1250 at f2.8, handheld, panoramic crop

I also really like the 2nd shot but the first gets my vote. Nice stuff Steve.

Both are sweet shots Steve. #1 is my favorite of the 2.

You know it's strange how different people like different things.

For me, the second image is a winner and the first an also-ran, just "another sunset shot." I just tossed the first one in there as an afterthought. I'll be printing the second image really large and custom matting and framing it, I like it that much.

In the end it's all good, and things like this are a continual lesson that what's important is not which nature image we like best, but that we simply like nature images as much as we do. gringrin

The second image does it also for me!...those skies sure made the photo!...one never can tell till we get back home and see the photo on the puter what we really have sometimes......I think maybe that image was the last thing Amelia Earhart saw before she took "the plunge" shocked.... grin

    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
    • Well there are a lot of ways to do it.   I'm going to bolt it down through the counter top, using the bolt holes for the leg levels. The idea of using straps and d rigs would look like dump and Be pretty pointless........it would be has much work having to ratchet strap the thing every time I was going to move vs setting it down on the floor. 
    • Yes it is a very good round.
    • I picked up a 6.5 creedmoor in a Kimber Montana last fall for a super lightweight 0-400 yard deer/antelope gun.  It is definitely the hot "new" cartridge in shooting circles due to the really good ballistics and low recoil.  And extreme accuracy.  I doubt the cartridge is going anywhere any time soon.  Virtually all the big manufacturers are building one now.
