On the ground and in the air

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

Taken last thing before heading home

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!

    • Whatever happened to reinhardt1?  He caught a lot of heat down here because he was so enthralled with Michelle Bachmann, but when he left Sillytown, he moved to the cooking thread, and he was very knowledgeable about cutting and preparing meat, since he was a butcher by trade.  I never spent much time in the cooking forum, but I would read reinhardt's posts occasionally.   I didn't mind Lmitout, but I've been frequenting these forums since the wild & wooly days - back when Jackpine Rob & the crew was on here.  Lmitout was pretty tame in comparison to some of those guys...   One who comes to mind went by the handle "Mariner Magnum"...                
    • Fun time at the river
    • There you go again, calling names.   "senile elders"  "brainwashed baby boomers"   "need the blue pill"     Are you serious dude?   And you wonder why folks don't take your alternative chiropractic talk seriously? 
    • some are still here, just not as busy posting.
    • The administration I referred to was not the Obama administration.  Don't edit me when quoting.  It was the HSO administration. 
    • Like I said I pop in from time to time , not like before. I do remember you rundrave stepping in and commenting on all the babble when the cooking thread crashed, you think that was the only babbling going on here? Hey, your a mod and we're just trying to cool things down, I get that.  In my opinion it came down to the cooking thread was dominating the rest and some didn't like it.  But if you want an answer on politics ,you don't have to look hard..
    • Rage, ok, thats funny. More so making light of rebels transparency regarding not being able to handle differing opinions and allowing his homeboys to throw out as much smack talk as me, only i come a little harder and sensative people struggle with their emotions.  Hence deleting a post with no rules breaking.     This whole post was a story, made up to start something. Nice troll work OP, i knew it a long time ago but played along cause it was fun but now its just a bunch of senile elders or brainwasher baby boomers that cant exchange without feeling like they were talked down to. So soft and zero passion for anything worthwhile, thats why you all need the blue pill.    
    •   Well shistter,  I had to WiKi the curry wurst so it looks like a real deal!   Currywurst (German pronunciation: [ˈkœʁiˌvʊʁst][1]) is a fast food dish of German origin consisting of steamed, then fried pork sausage (German: Bratwurst) typically cut into slices and seasoned with curry ketchup, a sauce based on spiced ketchup or tomato paste, itself topped with curry powder, or a ready-made ketchup seasoned with curry and other spices. The dish is often served with French fries.
