Moon & the Mill

10 posts in this topic

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.

No, I didn't I am ashamed to say. And I am such a moon person.

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 question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
