BWCA July '06

Recommended Posts

Here's my first submission to the photo forum so be gentle. I don't do any PP cause I have no idea what to get or what to fix. I'm open to suggestions since my wife and I are spending almost as much time taking photos as we do fishing in the BWCA.

I have a Nikon Coolpix L1. Its our first digi cam, but we chose it for its extended optical zoom, macro mode and all the optional scene modes to help a newbie.

Fog in the morning, Beaver Lake.


Moonrise over Beaver Lake. From a tripod with one of the night modes on. I took several photos til I got the right scene mode. Bringing the tripod was great for group timer photos and these nightime long exposure shots. campingpicsBWCA048.jpg

A water spider. One of my favorite macro shots.


White water lily The wife wanted one photo. Took 3 days to find the perfect one to photograph.


Portage landing from Beaver Lake to Adams Lake. My wifes favorite pic.

    • Good yo hear from you again!  Hope your search for property goes well and your time in stand is fruitful.
    • Nice pics jbell! That is a nice yellow garden spider you got there.
    • I had a nice size garden spider on my garage door. It stayed there about 3 weeks. Had a mate who I assume did his business and met his doom. I finally needed to open the door so I safely caught it and let it go in the woods near our house.  Her body is about an inch long. Probably about 3 inches total.       
    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
