Fall color shots not in monthly challenge

29 posts in this topic

Hey all:

As we did last month, here's a thread to throw in some neat fall color shots that either were taken before Oct. 1 and so don't qualify for the challenge or are extras that you want to share beyond the single challenge image.

Here are a bunch to get started. The canoeists are on Moose and Snowbank lakes, and the long views of fall color are from the top of Lookout Road out the Fernberg. I see the color on the canoe shots died a bit when I posted them. Just saturate the reds and yellows a bit in your mind's eye. smilesmile

Let's see more fall color stuff, everyone! It's one of the best seasons to be out and about with the camera. gringrin

Are these all with your 400? Nicely done. Great overlook from the Lookout Road. Haven't found that one yet!

Thanks, Ken and CG. These were all with the 400. The strong DOF on some of the shots is because they were so far away, plus I was shooting at f8 to f11 whenever possible to render some detail in the fall color.

Gotta love iso400 and a rock solid monopod! gringrin

Should probably put these in the photo challenge, but hopefully though doubt it that i'll get a better pict. Our color around here is just nearing 50%. The girlfriend and I went on a 4-wheeler ride out through my dads property the last hour of daylight today. These pictures were not edited in any way. The sun was setting but still hitting the tree. In the second pict you can see the shade line right around me.

It's tough trying to capture "that special image" of fall in northern Minnesota.....almost every country road has it's unique beauty...Here's another image from last weekend....this particular road is 20 minutes south of Hibbing (Hwy 73) near Beauty Lake/Island Lake country...Always has been that "special place" every fall since I was a teen hunting grouse(45 years ago grin)

Here's some silly fall color!

For over 10 years I had been looking for one of these! A 1996 2182 Cub Cadet with power steering,3 point hitch,PTO,and the 3 cylinder Kubota engine.

I've had many large John Deere riders,but had always wanted one of these-don't ask me why. crazy

Cruising thru the Deere dealers lot I happened to see it and tried to curb my excitement long enough to ask the salesman the price. "Well,it ain't green" he said,"soooo..how about $800?" I paid him immediately and felt like a little kid on Christmas day.

I then called the guy who's been wanting my deere rider and made a sale to him for $3800. So I got what i always wanted and pocketed 3 grand-I'm happy to say the least.

Needless to say,my wife thinks I'm weird for lusting after this tractor and driving it around just to drive it. And oh man,this baby just rips skippy! I love that 3 cylinder engine.

Do I have a problem or what??!! I guess just finding a way to post this image answers that question! grin

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
