Moon & the Mill

Recommended Posts

I really lucked out yesterday evening when I set out to capture this old, long abandoned windmill with the full moon rising. Over the years, I have put forth a good effort in and around this windmill, mostly during sunrises and sunsets. This was the first attempt to capture it during a fullmoon scenario. The location of the moon could not have been better as it gave me clear and unobstructed view of this scene.

Another awesome bit of good fortune was the ever so thin layer of clouds laying low over the distant horizon. Clouds have such a postive effect on subjects, especially the sun & moon.

Thanks all! Sorry for the slow response However, I've had my hands full of late keeping an eye on and attempting to do some flooding proofing to ward off the Red of late. Massive ice jams are once again reeping havoc for many property owners north of the City of Winnipeg! This is nothing new, for more time than not, ice jams consisting of ice measuring three feet thick or more take place on this portion of the Red years after year!

Unfortunately this year the damage to some home & property along the Red have sustained major damage. Reports are stating that some homes were actually hit by huge chunks of causing extremely extensive damage.

I'll post a few pic's as soon as I can gather them. I'll post them on the Red River thread...

That would be frightening. I have really only had one ice jam here since I moved on the river 12 years ago. But the chunks were nothing like those you describe, and never actually left the banks. I'm sure we will all be thinking of you and waiting until you have time for the more pleasant photos again.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
