A very big boat in a very small channel. The St. Marys River actually reverses its flow when one of these behemoths passes by, and then recedes exposing her shallows.
Don't tarry there, or the large wave the marks the return to normal flow will catch you off-guard!
I hope the tractor-trailer is visible in this re-sized photo.
My apologies to the locals who may have been frightened by the madman with the tripod racing through the swamp shouting, "No, slow down! Not so fast!" at both the sun and the truck driver!
The ragged eastern "shoreline" of that scrap of sand out in the Atlantic Ocean, known as Ocracoke Island. I can't believe people actually live out here! It's just sand . . . out in the ocean! Maybe a few feet of elevation!
But just about the nicest, friendliest people one could meet.
The protected shoreline of Pinery Provincial Park was like a driftwood gallery the day I visited. This one reminded me of a favorite childhood song.
The "tabular" mountains of NW Lake Superior are a startling sight the first time you see them.
A lovely out-of-the way spot to visit, especially for those "inlanders" who are still fascinated by tides.
I noticed this fellow just in time. Without the fill flash he was perfectly camoflaged. I was just about ready to hop down on the rip-rap to see that I could see.
This is still a significant zoom lens (~200mm) used for safety sake.
86km/h downsloping winds gave the 'Old Man' the startling blue colour in this photo. I was travelling with the wind this day and got awesome mileage!
Sunset ignites the sky as central Ontario waits to hear from Hurricane Isabel in 2003. The colours are NOT retouched! This is nature at its best.
Toronto from across Lake Ontario. A 500mm lens and a lens of cold air over the lake (and an awesome sunset!) make this picture possible.
