Back To Hamlin Lake!
Well it’s Monday afternoon here and I am already back at the Lake. The cousins and I decided to come back up and get some more things in like (like photography & more tubing) that we couldn’t because of the 30 odd family members that were here last week! I have a light house that I will be checking out and I will have to make it to the dunes this time around.
I thought I would get this shot up that I took last Thursday up here. I actually drove the ATV just down the road to this spot before getting eaten alive by mozies! So I packed up my gear as I ran around trying to escape the mozies and quickly got back to the cottage to put some jeans on and a jumper and a shit load of bug spray, and then headed straight back to the same spot. It seems these killer mozies weren’t extremely concerned about the spray. I was able to get this shot. Whilst I was setting up for it over the puddle, I dropped my shutter release cable to hang from the camera like I always do, only to watch it continue to fall into the puddle, somehow detatching from my camera. I quickly grabbed it out of the water and swung the shutter around from the cable and tried to blow the water out. (I would also like to say this is the first time the cable had ever fallen off the camera.) I connected it back to the camera, but now instead of having to half push to focus and then a full push for shutter lock and then another full push to take the shot…. It now takes the lightest of touches to quickly focus and lock the shutter instantly and then another fairy touch to take the shot. Hopefully this is not permanent!
Anyway…. heres the shot,
