Images from Dee/Island Lake - Another successful outing.

This outing took us to the Dee / Island Lake area.  A chain of four inter-connected lakes that are great for paddling, fishing, and boating (from north to south the lakes are – Dee, Island, Deer, and Crooked).  There was lots of practice of on-the-water nature photography skills – birds, insects, wetlands, fall colours, etc.

We had a very successful Milky Way Night Photography at Kekuli Bay park just off Hiway 97.  Many people attended in the -4c weather and clear skies.  Great time had by all and lots of new things were experienced by many.

Our outing was am evening at the O’Keefe Ranch to find some phantoms using long exposures. We will also be able to light paint some of the old buildings and heritage farm equipment found at the Ranch. Our thanks also go to Patrick McIvor from Dancing Scot Forge for staying late and running the forge for us.  It was a fun evening and the Ranch is an interesting place to shoot at night – not just for ghost images.
