The place was pretty deserted, expect for a few workers and people in business outfits? WTF? Strange place to go in your work clothes. The mud wasn't to bad but was glad I had my boots on. The trail isn't a loop right now as some of it is blocked for the workers to replace some of the boardwalk.
Shot some normal shots, as you'll see, and a pile of pano's. Sorry for so many but I really couldn't decide which to post and which not, so said "the hell with it" and posted all the ones that I liked ;-) I still need to work on my white balance on bright blue skies but I'm getting better. You can see the blues not blending as nice as they should/could. Think I might need to start using custom white balance.
Hope you enjoy. Remember to click the image for a bigger version, especially the pano's!
No software zooms, this was how close I could get to him. I didn't bug him at all.
One lonely stick.
Ice is rotting fast.
Spike? Almost looks like a lizard.
Was trying to climb the small tree to jump to a bird feeder.
10 images blended into one. As you can see the ice is still in but it's pretty rotted and melting fast. Not something I would walk on.
Only 7 images on this one! This is how it looks in the summer.
9 images. This bog has always reminded me of Newfoundland.
A whooping 15 images blended here. Yes I was trying to get the symmetry of the walkway.
8 images. Going back over the really wet part of the bog.
and finally 15 images. There were a couple of ducks hanging in the weeds but they wouldn't come out. So got bored and did this shot while I waited. Naturally they took off before I could switch the lens back.
Wonder where I'll go tomorrow? We'll see, I have to go into the city tomorrow for a few errands and then staying at Jen's for a few days. If I have time after the errands and the weather is good I might hit Hog's Back park or something. I still haven't perfected shooting waterfalls and that is the only one I can think of that's close by. My vacation is disappearing fast - doh!
