Doing the Limbo

No I am not actually doing the Limbo. That would not be a pretty site at all.  We have made it to the "Land of 10,000 lakes" and we are getting things taken care of. Quite a few maintenance items to take care of both with the RV and ourselves. New glasses ordered, teeth checked on and of course doctor visits. But I am sure you don't want to know how my prostrate exam went (do you?). Well you will have to google it.

So since we aren't really doing a whole lot that many people would find interesting I thought I would do a little photo highlight. A friend of mine picked 10 of his top pictures that he thought where outstanding(and they where) and he just discussed them so you would know why he thought they were what they were. So I thought I would try that also. Although I don't know if I have 10 but we will see. Be sure to enlarge the photo so you can see the detail better.
I like this one because its Moose. Also the lighting, the texture of the carpet and the detail of his fur. I like the look on his face. You can almost feel how good that sunbeam feels. Lisa took this picture with her Samsung tablet. Pretty good I thought. Although I don't want to be one of those people that you see on vacation taking photos with thier big tablets.
Beach walk on St. George Island
We were taking an early morning walk on St. George Island in Florida when we took this picture. There were many beautiful pictures this day. What I like about this one though is the beautiful colors. The contrasts from the sand, the water the dark clouds and also the falling rain. This was taken with our Canon Powershot  SD 1200 IS camera. Just a little point and shoot camera. That is what we usually have along on our adventures.
Sunset Grill, Marathon, FL.
So many places in Florida brag about thier sunsets. And of the places we have been to, they have a right to brag about them. This was at the Sunset grill in Marathon Florida on the way to Key West. 7 mile bridge is just to the right. This picture was shooting into the setting sun and the Tiki roof, palm trees and people all came out black from the brightness. I like this one because it almost could be a post card. The detail is amazing. Look at the waves on the pool. This was taken with our Canon Powershot on the sunset setting.
Canadian Rockies
I like this photo because of the ruggedness of the mountains. thier grey and white color next to the blue of the water. We have never seen water that color of blue before. Also the green of the pine trees. We should of had a 3d camera to show the depth of the entire area. Canon Powershot.
Antelope Canyon
This is a unique photo that I like. This is a picture in the Antelope Canyon in Arizona. It shows a lot of depth to it with the darkness and the light. It looks like you are looking into a cave but in fact this was taken pointing straight up with the light shinning down. Our Navajo tour guide Irene gets credit for this picture. She knew how to optimize our camera settings to get this shot. She knew more about our camera than we did. Canon Powershot again.

Well that is it. Not quite 10 but it is a start. Hopefully we will get better at photography.


  1. Nice pics. I love the Antelope Canyon shot. You should frame that one!

  2. Yes, I could see that one hanging in an art gallery. Maybe sell it for $10,000. :-)

  3. Oh, I definitely buy one for that price!
