Stu, you manage to find some really amazing shots up there on Lake Winnepeg. I wished I could find some more instesting stuff here on the red river, but since it is only about 50 feet wide and full of mud, and dead trees, not much around there.

Keep em Coming.

If the truth be told Paul, the surrounding area where I grew up offers an extremely wide and diverse landscape. A landscape where the Shield country meets prarie and where river meets lake. It is truly a paradise for anyone who loves the great outdoors.

I am located a mere thirty minutes from downtown Winnipeg (whoopy). Less than an hour drive I'm in God's Country or Pre-Cambrian Shield country, which has the same terrain as where Steve lives over by Ely. Less than half an hour and I'm on the shores of Lake Winnipeg. The Red River meanders through massive Netley/Libau Marsh before entering into Lake Winnipeg. Netley as it is so often referred to is approximately one hundred square miles of wetlands. It's a great place to wander around in a boat or canoe or even a belly boat. Besides fish, it's also home to countless bird species from Bald & Golden eagles, countless shore bird species and a wide array of song birds. Another area of great interest is Oak Hammock Marsh. Fifteen minutes west and I'm in the largest migratory game bird refuge in western Canada where each year over a million geese pass through.

In a nutshell Paul, I considered myself spoiled when it pertains to fishing/hunting and photography, even though I don't hunt these days. wink

Suomi Sunrise.

For what it's worth. Looked great when I stopped to take some shots this morning, but lots of dynamic range (light) to work around. Much happening with frost, fog and sunrise all going on at the same time. Some serious blending here, as well as a power line being cloned out.

Ken. Wonderful. Surreal and dreamy and dark and very boreal Finnlander. The feel is "North of 60" (as in latitude). It belongs on someone's wall.

Thanks all for the nice compliments. Wasn't sure how it would be received, because it took a fair amount of PP work. Steve, I'm going to assume the

Snapped this about 10 minutes ago. My father in law is combining beans right outside our place. Rode the four wheeler out, so this was handheld. I was going for the silhouette effect.

I believe it was at 1/2500, 5.0, -1 exposure compensation, ISO 100.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
