First Canoe trip shots

19 posts in this topic

I've got just a little time to go through my shots of my canoe trip, so picked just a couple for now. Hope to have some more later:

Birdseye grain from a dried stump next to my tent site on Cap Lake, Canon 40D 100-400 mm used as a macro:

One of my party, Vince, checking the map on Thomas Lake:

and this one's for polarsus81 who was "disappointed" that I didn't have one of these on the last trip pix I took:

Very cool. I picked the wrong time to look at these. It's about supper time and those fish look great. I have to clean the slobber off my monitor now.

Neat stuff, Ken, as I'd expect! grin

Tom, you should hook up with Ken if you need some advice on the trip. I mean, it's not like he's a BWCAW veteran or anything. I think he's only been going in there for more than 40 years. gringringrin

Great shots Ken! I have been talking with some of my friends from Duluth about planning our annual fall BWCA trip this fall. I certainly love canoe country. Wonderful job capturing some what makes canoe country great.

Ken, that image of the three different colored water lily pads is excellent!

Is that the actual colors, of the lily pads? That is really cool. However, that shore lunch sure looks delectable. I haven't had a fresh meal of fish yet this year. frown

Mike,

Yep, those were the colors. I saturated a tad, but that's pretty close to what they were. I was sitting having lunch and they caught my attention.

Those lily pads are great Ken, along with the rest of them. Nice work, looks like a lot of fun.

    • The Schrillary reich didnt compromise Bernie? And when hasnt the biased media compromised an election in recent memory? Nick is a hack and consistently posts 2nd grade propaganda, hes sold out to the party. They've been exposed and are resorting to extremes.  They went all in with obama and got called, he had far more to do with the outcome of the elections than anything  leaked by anyone.  Now its the fake blame game, humorous to say the least.   Snowflake butthurt apparently leads to desperation.
    • Really??? Catfish is my favorite fish.
    • I suspect you haven't visited this year or seen the reports.     And, for the record, I didn't say I was catching "tons" on Mille Lacs, but it was the best lake I've visited in the last two years.  And it wasn't even close.    
    • I think Schells is Minnesota's oldest brewer, so they must be doing something right.   I know some guys from New Ulm, and they all drink Schells.   That's how I got turned onto it in the first place.  Never got burned out on it, though..
    • Sink or swim? I am sure that some of you have heard that if you put seeds in water the ones that sink are better then the ones that float. I have heard this from the old guys but I have never tried it myself. Well I found myself with some radish seeds and I decided to pour them into a cup of water and sure enough about half sunk to the bottom while the rest floated. I got out a bowl and filled it with coconut husk planting mix and put the floaters on one side and the sinkers on the other. I am now waiting to see what side comes up first or if both sides will come up at the same time.   Any comments? Has anyone else heard of this and does anyone check their seeds before planting?
    • Maybe he's just hungry............    
    • Catfish!! I haven't had that in about ten years! Dang, that looks good! 
    • All day long you sit here and demand answers from everyone else but you never answer anyone else's questions. I wonder why that is?    
    • I would guess even Fletcher would say Stall has passed all expectations. I will give credit to Fletcher for building this team from absolute zero, we had almost no skill or prospects when he took over,  sure it took longer than we wanted but right now it is worth it. No doubt luck can play a roll, most GM's don't have a Suter, Parise, Stall & BB fall into their lap but quality drafting and development are also paying big dividends right now. We also have a lot of high end prospects that can fill in for the vets in the coming years. A cup is still a long ways away but this year is probably the best NHL team the state has ever seen.
