“It’s Canadia, eh!” [Fishing Adventure].

Shenandoah, West Virginia

About a month ago, my family met up with some other family from Maryland. We were staying at Shenandoah, West Virginia. The scenery was amazing and the fishing wasn’t to bad either. To read more about the fishing, check out this article on my Michigan blog:

Here are some more the of “scenery” pictures. I hope you enjoy them:

While fishing, I took this picture of heat lightning:

Towards the end of the vacation, we launched some chinese lanterns into the air and made a wish:

Canadian Skies-Part 2

I started writing part one of this blog while I was in Canada but never got around to posting it. It then started to rain the last 5 days and I didn’t know if I was going to be able to shoot any more pictures. I did shoot some pictures while inside of pets. Needless to say, the rain let up on our last day and I was able to shoot some more of New Brunswick beauty.

When you travel as much as I do, traveling plans don’t always seem to work out. Usually, delays are caused my transportation failures or cancelled flights. This time, it had nothing to do with transportation, sort of. Thursday when we were suppose to come home, my Grammy woke up sick. Driving the 18 hours home would have been miserable for her, so we held off. Then the sickness slowly made its way through the family. My mom started to feel nausea and then around 4 PM, I was down for the count. We ended up not leaving til 8 AM the next day, 26 later then we wanted. Of coarse, when we finally get going, we hit this traffic.

It turns out a truck ran into another truck and blew up. Unfortunately, the trucker who ran into the other trucker passed a way.

If you read my last blog post, you probably have seen all the pictures added to this gallery. If not, here is the rest of the pictures:

I also have completed another video I am trying to upload to YouTube. Once that is completed I will be making another blog post. Hopefully sometime today!

Birthday Weekend in Northwestern, Michigan

My birthday came and went. Since I do a lot of work in the outdoors, I am usually working on Memorial day weekend. That was not the case this year. I did shoot some pictures but I don’t really call that work. This year I was able to spend my Birthday up north at Interlochen State Park. We traveled all around the northwest part of the state. It made for a great weekend. If only I got to catch some fish.

This female duck decided to lay eggs right next to our camp.

We love to spend time in Frankfort and Elberta.

As always, more picture can be seen here:

Hawaii

Last year I went to the island of Kauai, Hawaii with my good friend Calvin. Calvin had a Cannon rebel and I had a Cannon Powershot digital camera. The shots Calvin took compared to my camera were amazing. This year I went back with the family and a much better camera, a Nikon D5100. I was ready and really looking forward to learning more about this camera. Needless to say, I was really happy with my pictures from this trip and I hope you enjoy them.

Roger and Amanda Booths Wedding

A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of taking pictures or Roger and Amandas Wedding. This was a special wedding because I have known Amanda and her family every since I was born and have spent many holidays with them up north. Here are some of the pictures:
