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.

    • 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.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!
