Prairie Sunset

Recommended Posts

I took this a few weeks ago and just made some adjustments to my monitor today, then I edited this photo. How does it look on your monitor? My reds had been a little hot lately and after making this adjustment it looks like some of my work may have been a little over-saturated. Please let me know, I realize it is a sunset and open to interpretation, but does it look right in your eye is all I am asking. Thanks for your help.

It looks great on my monitor. I just calibrated it a few days ago also. Great image Yak! It has a great feel to it. I love the way you were able to keep the details in the middle area.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks guys. The colors here on my monitor seem to be looking better to me as well. For you guys with the fancily calibrated monitors, if you ever see one from me where the colors look a little off please let me know. Like X, I am a big boy and can handle it. This sort of constructive criticism will only help me get better.

    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
