On the ground and in the air

9 posts in this topic

It was a windy, windy day, but I'd had enough of sorting thousands of images on the computer and getting part way through cutting, splitting and stacking 10 cords of hardwood for this winter's heat.

Yeah, saving $2,000 on the heating bill is a pretty big deal for us, but all work and no play make Jack a VERY dull boy, as one horror novelist once wrote. winkwink

So I chucked it all and headed up the Echo Trail for the afternoon and evening.

I only made two images I liked, largely because of the wind pushing everything around. But I like them pretty good, and hope you enjoy them, too.

Two species of moss, two species of lichen, granite and a dead balsam fir needle cluster, taken 10 minutes into the trip

Canon 5D, Canon 100 macro, iso400, 4 sec at f32, remote shutter release, tripod, mirror lockup

5D, Canon 400 f5.6L, Canon 1.4 TC Mk2, manual focus and manual exposure settings, iso400, 1/40 at f8, tripod, remote shutter release, panoramic crop

Both are VERY nice, Steve. I would have to agree, however, I like the second one a little more. Takin' advantage of the 5D I see! Good for you!

    • It's a female Bigfoot,  silly.
    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
