Getting Big

Leslie & Levi joined us for supper this evening. He sure is getting big. Big enough to sit in the high chair.

No not yet, but I'm sure it's not too far away. This Fallingsnow is the lake located off highway 595 near South Gillies. We parked at the base of the mountain and walked up the road to the lake. The road was a little steep and narrow but you could probably take a   4 x 4 up to the top. We, Christopher and I, decided to walk as I shot pictures and he shot birds!. Yea hunting. He didn't get any up there but ended up shooting 2 later on in the day. I shot some nice pictures of the lake, my main reason for going.

3 in 1

I tried a HDR freeware program on a set of three photos from last weekend. The first three images are the originals at three different exposure levels. The fourth image is the combination of the three.

 normal exposure

 under exposed

 over exposed

final image

I'm going to have to try some more of these.

Happy B. Day

Kids were over tonight for cake & ice cream for Jennifer's birthday. A couple days early but the only evening that worked for her. Dade had fun but Levi definitely doesn't like noise. And when he gets upset man can he scream!

Chippewa Zoo

A last minute trip to Chippewa to take Dade to the zoo. I've never seen so many animals moving around. Dade was more interested in running on the board walk than seeing the animals. The only one that really caught his attention was the moose. I got a couple pictures,


Dade the swimmer. He has no fear of the water and loves to splash & play in the tub. Last weekend he got the chance to try Lake Superior and loved it.

I took quite a few sunset pictures during our camping trip. They were taken from the dock, the beach and the dam at Lake Marie Louise. I'm still undecided as to which one I like best.
