An hour last evening...

Once again the smoke filled sky up here is having an interesting effect on the sun's color. The haze is the direct results of forest fires burning up north. In turn, the smoke from these fires winds up upon us when the winds blow out of the north.

I captured these yesterday evening at the end of my driveway during a well involved sunset.

The first capture was of this Wood Lily with the low lying sun (not visible) in the immediate back ground. Notice how the sun's light was able to penetrate through the Lilies pedal giving it that nice showdow effect on the other pedals.

After capturing a few photo's of the lily I swithed my attention to the large drainage ditch that runs along the road in which I live. Here the ditch is filled with these very tall, broam like grass that I simply refer to as, you guessed it, "Tall Grass!

Regardless of the actual name, the photo opps. became very intersting as the setting sun continued it's advance.

We too have been having the smoke the last few days. It is making the nice sunny days really hazy.

    • I would say your results speak for themselves, we often do things that don't make sense or trade short term gain for long term trouble. Nature does things for a reason that we often don't understand, why try to fix what isn't broken?
    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
