Hi John,

Don't understand the title, but the Picture is perfect.

I'm a fan of shots like this .

The colors are AWESOME

Y*....well done Ray

John Gillett on April 12, 2009

Thanks Ray.

The title is because this area is fenced off in Burlington, ON, and I had to climb through some fence to get there.

The City has been building a pier for the last two or three years, and it looks like it will be another one or two before they finish it. We rarely see anybody working on it. It's as if the city has lost interest and it's turned into a fenced-off junk yard. Meanwhile, my tax dollars are paying to deprive my family of parkland by keeping it fenced off.

Cheers, John

Good point about the fence ;-)

I was using a 10-20mm lens, and I think I was at the 10 end. My sensor is a 1.6 crop, so I guess you say technically I was at 16, which is pretty wide. It's a fun lens!

I also like doing sunrises/sets with my long zoom to get a big sun, though I haven't done any for a while.

Cheers, John

Great shot, it was a good idea to climb over the fence. It's interesting to see how our taxes are wasted, not only in Germany;-)) Kind regards
