      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Going to Wabasha, any tips on locations?

Recommended Posts

Girlfriend and I are going to Wabasha tonight to celebrate V-Day early, and tomorrow we are going to take a trek to the National Eagle Center. Wondering if anyone has any tips on other locations in Wabasha to shoot some photos.

You will see plenty of birds along the river. north of Winona along the east side was some good viewing ares. When I moved my daughter down there for school it would be nothing to see 50-100 eagles. Good luck and hope to see the shots on Monday when I return to work.

I've actually had my best luck at Colville Park, on the south end of Red Wing. Read's Landing is another potential area. There are a couple areas along the hwy. to pull over. Even if you don't see anything, it still pays to pull over and just watch for awhile. You just never know when they are going to fly by.

Good luck.

Snapped a couple shots at Reed's Landing on the way back on Friday.

Here is one that I did a 100% crop and adjusted the exposure on.

Still decent detail considering it was shot at 200mm from a pretty good distance. I need to go back down there armed with a 400 or better to get some better shots. A little bit of blue sky might have helped too.

Here is the original.

Tom, I know how you feel. The day I made it to redwing, it was greyer than a black and white TV and the birds were a long ways away.
