Metallak was spectacular as usual this year. I was on call this week, so haven't had time to upload any but the title photo. Maybe I can this weekend, except I will be at our camp, and won't have access to my PC with all the pix programs on it.

Ponds - definitely not beauty cream

They are finally expanding our pond.
I don't think it will be usable for a month or so...
but it will definitely be big enough for hockey.

Is that a kind of hat? Sorry, couldn't resist. I have been putting some of my panoramas together in the past month or so. (I have more!) These are some of my favorites. This requires either a very good sense of balance, or a good tripod. Maybe I should try a tripod...
The beautiful, the sublime,the grand,
the one and only Metalak Island!
Pardon my poetic lapse there...
make sure you zoom in on the right hand side, on the beach.
One of the most spectacularly strange sunsets I have ever seen. It was during the end of a thunderstorm. Also at Metalak Island.
Curtis Cove from Losey's front yard... what a sad life they lead (NOT!)Curtis Cove a bit later...
good things come to those who wait.
Panther Pond from the top of Tarkiln Hill
Misty, foggy sunset
Near the intersection of Greenwood Rd and Pleasant Hill Rd
Phang Nha Bay, Krabi, Thailand
Several of these are much wider, and some are a complete circle. I haven't figured out how to import that yet.

A friend of mine gave me this intriguing idea - finding shapes in woodgrain, and super-imposing a picture over it... here are my first attempts
