End of a long dog day
Lens: 21 Ltd. Camera: K-3 Photo Location: enn lake, Algonquin Park ISO: 200 
Posted By: normhead, 08-08-2014, 12:04 PM

K-3 21ltd ISO 200
Most images taken ƒ5.6, flower @ ƒ3.2
Taken in AV mode

After a long day of solo+dog paddling we finally get to rest, camps made, dinner has been eaten...time for a sunset, Me and Tripper on the beach. Tripper doesn't really understand cameras so there aren' any of me. Sorry you selfie worshipping dudes and dudesses.



The Sun's creating nice light....








OK, maybe I better check this out...


Man my eyes are getting tired..




Tripper, you're missing the best of the sunset..




A young family on the next point over, takes in the sunset- DA*60-250. Sometimes it looks like an empty wilderness, But Penn Lake in August, not really. First night I was there, there were 16 of 16 campsites booked, the second night 13 of 16. Anyplace within 10 km of Hwy 60 and less than 2 portages in is going to be full in August. On the long August weekend the park usually sells out, as in not a campsite anywhere, interior or campgrounds, drive in campgrounds, it doesn't matter, full to the limit.

Lovely images - they make me homesick (it helps that I can't see any mosquitoes or blackflies in the images). The photos of Tripper are especially great.

Mosquitos Blackflies? Here in Canada? Surely you jest. (This where you say "Stop calling me Shirley."

Once the work is done, very relaxing. Paddle and portage to camp (4 hours) , collect fire wood, get fresh water, make dinner, wash dishes... you usually get to relax a bit at the end of the day. The only thing worse than doing it, is not doing it.

Added extra feature...

I am a mosquito magnet. They find me on the top floor of my apartment in the canyons of Wall Street.

I'm just going to enjoy Algonquin Park through your photos. Maybe to get the full experience, I'll slap myself in the head from time to time

I should pay you to come on my spring trips, if they'll go for you and leave paying clients alone, it'll be worth it.

There are maybe 3 or 4 days a year when it's too cold for them to go out, and another couple weeks when it's too buggy... but part from that, ya pretty much a dogs paradise.
