All week while we were in Ely, we waited for the mist. The second last morning there was a small cloud of mist coming off the lake and Wendy, one of the other girls and I rushed down to get a picture of the mist. It was not an impressive mist, coming and going very quickly and looked more like a puff of smoke than thick mist. There was a fisherman going out in a boat and we were anxiously waiting for him to get his boat started so we could take his picture in the precarious mist. It wasn’t to be. The boat wouldn’t start and then when it finally did, the mist was gone. We left feeling thoroughly defeated.
Then, on the last morning of our stay, the mist was very thick and white and lovely. A couple of our group went out in a canoe and we got the pictures we wanted. It felt like a fitting ending to a lovely trip. I left the mist picture for last on this blog entry. It is where it fits best.
The bear and the wolf are my favorites of the animal pictures.
The night before we left we had a campfire and roasted smores. This is one of the pictures from that night. Thank you for posing for me Ellen.
The image of the leaves in a pond is my favorite of the whole trip. I still need to do something about the bubble in the lower right corner. I’m going to try to clone some more bubbles into the image and see how that looks.
I’m going to be uploading these images and others from the trip to my landscape site. Let me know if you are interested in purchasing any of the Ely images that you’ve seen on my blog.
