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.

    • If this crazy weather keeps up a guy might have to go to the mountains to have enough snow to ride.
    • I purchased a 20v 986 Dewalt brushless and used it with my Nils 8" and could not believe how fast it cut. Very close to my Tanaka motor as far as speed. My plan is to use it with my 6" Nils but wanted to give it a good test and it passed with flying colors. 
    • Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals).   Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
    • Here's the exact reason why I encourage everyone to buy the digital readout.  After getting holes drilled and everything setup, I always run my bathroom roof fan/vent to get rid of the moisture as the slush on the floor gets melted.  Yesterday I cranked the fan on max which moves some serious air, but I forgot to crack a window, which caused it to actually suction the CO from my water heater back into the house through a propane line pass through.  I looked up and saw 30ppm on the CO detector, which isn't high, but an indicator that something wasn't right.  All it took was cracking a window and turning down the fan for a minute and it was back to 0.  
    • You do realize the person you wanted to be president couldn't even understand the proper protocol for setting up a cabinet level email account don't you?    
    • I looked into fiberglass a few years back for a build.  I decided against it as it needed a wood backer.  Not sure if there is a different product out there now.  
    • finally got out Friday, put on 75 miles in the heavy drizzle, not the first time I have riden in the rain. the trails were OK, I rode in aitkin co. that doubles the miles I put on in the last two years.
    • they load tested the battery and said it was bad, everything else they said was fine, they put in a new battery. tried it today after sitting since Tuesday, and it started up fine, problem fixed.   I have a 2002 grizz carbed, and that sat for close to 3 months, went to start it this weekend, and it cranked for at least a minute (very cold blooded machine) and it started, it has the same battery that's in the Polaris.
    • Precious snowflake Trump needs a safe space from the media apparently.   I suggest you familiarize yourself with the word kakistocracy, because that appears to be the road we will be traveling down.
    • No,I am saying those who are left with jobs are working for those who Obama is happy to give money to for nothing. He was as bad as it gets in terms of getting people back to work after a recession especially when you factor in the amount of money he spent to do it.
