This is the one shot I got of Steve's clouds last night during the football game:

Getting ready for a wedding over on Lake Vermilion. So what's your excuse? gringrin

People like the couple I photographed today remind me why I love to shoot weddings so much. Laid back, totally cool couple, big anglers. Him in his tux and her in her wedding dress, I got them out into the musky boat and they cast lures toward me for some of the pics. Would've been wild to have a toothy critter explode on one of those topwaters at boatside. What a shot that would have made. shocked

Gotta love those outdoors couples! She even kicked his butt walleye fishing on Vermilion the other day. gringrin

Ken, looked like you had great sunny skies for football this afternoon. Cool to see you're working with VCC now, too. Hope that honey-do list went well, too. gringrin

Still thinkin about Hawk Ridge next Sunday?

Thanks, all. Steve, I get a little VCC work once in awhile, some on spec, some asked for. This was a game I was asked to be at (and actually paid for!).

For those of you who don't know, this is kind of where I started with my photography a few years ago, and where I spend a lot of my time now:

Canon 1D Mark II, 300L 2.8 + 1.4 converter. ISO 800 Tv priority at 1/1600 f/7.1 - f/8.0

Steve, I'll be in touch about mid-week on Hawk Ridge. Supposed to fly sometime this week after work, but if it doesn't work out, next Sunday is the back-up.

The action in the first two are cool, but the third one looks like the photo on a trading card.

Third shot has all the ingredients of a great sports photo! Great group of shots. Tv huh? With the exception of panning situations or bike racing, airplane propeller shots I can't recall ever shooting anything sports related in Tv! It sure worked well for you.

I don't shoot in Tv much, but I was playing with some stuff in the second half, and that's where I was when I took these shots. Seems to work for me if I've got some room for light changes (here I was up to f/10 at times)and back ground is not as important to me.

    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
    • What a fun election cycle, first Trump dismantles the Republican party and may take them to even lower lows by winning. Then even more surprising is the Democrats totally imploding all on their own and losing to Trump in the process. No hollywood script can compete with this kind of crazyness, just happy to be alive to witness all of this mess and hope there is much much more to come. Something tells me I won't be disappointed, I am almost excited for the next one, 4 years ago I never would have thought that in my wildest dreams.
    • 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.
