New Worlds by Thomas-Koidhis New Worlds by Thomas-Koidhis
Second hike out to Pelican Rapids the morning after my first trip was pretty intense. We missed the best of the morning light because we got held up in town but it was still well worth it!

In case anyone wonders - this is a small part of a river, one of the largest in the world.



Tons of detail in the print file, over 18,000 pixels across and 5455 tall in this 10 image stitch which makes it nearly a 99.6 Megapixel image :D Full view for best sharpness ;)

CPL and 2 stop soft GND

Have you ever had moments when your camera dies out on you in the most wondrous moments of nature?

Well, now you can use nature to fill up your phone and capture that moment!

Hey Chelsea! I've had to say this a lot often cause I've neglected DA terribly, but I am SOOO sorry for taking...over a month?? to respond to you. But you are the first =P I haven't gone an apologized to everybody else yet this time around. Annnyways, it was taken early summer 2011. The water level is usually high earlier in the season like that and kind of goes down until freeze-up.

One year, in fact I think it was in 2011, something was up down south, flooding I heard, and of course the Slave is basically the drain for all of the waterways of Canada, so the water level was higher than I've ever seen.

When I get around to it I'll post some shots of it in my scraps, but for imagination purposes, the Rocks were completely submerged. Not kidding! And the high water level had picked up all the driftwood that had clung to the banks and settled on the granite so if you went to the lookout all you would see is thousands and thousands of logs floating in the river, it was kind of freaky honestly..

Another awesome looking pano, so wish i could get shots like this, i missed so many good shots today because of work =/ i know ill never get another chance to see a rainbow that made a full circle again or a pure rainbow cloud over the sunset horizon with 2 eagles hovering in the wind, i think that would of been a good shot...but anyway this is awesome work man, totally favin' this^^

Are you allowed to have a camera at work? I miss a lot of great shots in that I can't make a "pro" quality image of them but I always bring a cam to work..even if you get a good handheld, you can preserve the moment. I have hundreds of photos that are "snapshots"...lots of them in my scraps and will probably post more.

It does suck when you can't take a great shot of something rare like that...But over time, I've learned that these passing moments recur. There will always be many more great moments! Not in the same form necessarily but when you can't photograph a moment try to hold it in memory and remember to pack even a small digital cam on you at all times if possible. It's better to take a snapsnot than no shot at all :D

I would carry a camera with me but i commercial fish in the summer so i dont really have anytime to be taking a picture when i need to be picking fish all day plus the fact i would rune any camera that i would be using since im normally covered in fish blood kelp dirt ect.

So far all the best shots that i have seen out here in the middle of noware have been right as im working or just about to finish working, like today i missed out on taking a pic of two sea otters fighting over something by the dock then an eagle swooped down at them!, if i got a close up shot and timed it just right i believe i could of gotten a real nice looking animal fight pic lol or a week ago i could of gotten a real nice pic of a mother bear and her 2 cubs by the ocean shore, i didnt notice them till i my dad pointed them out, it scared the crap out of me but she didn't really notice me or didn't care i was there which was odd behavior for a mother bear around her cubs since i was only about 100 to 160 ft away, totally missed my chance at that shot =/

Yeah, that is hard. Olympus makes a small, relatively cheap camera (pocket size) that is completely shock and waterproof by the way. You can drop it on ocean rocks and then into the ocean, take it out and keep shooting haha. I wanna get me one of those!
