Return to Port

A small fishing boat returns to the Algoma, WI harbor after an early morning on Lake Michigan.

This was the first morning of the Kewaunee/Door County Salmon Tournament.  You can still see remnants of the heavy fog that kept a lot of boats from venturing out early this day.

The K/D Tournament is a big, big deal in these parts.  According to their Facebook page…

The KD Salmon Tournament is an amateur sport fishing tournament that runs for 9 consecutive days each summer. Approximately 2,300 to 2,800 contestants participate each year and over $40,000 in prizes are awarded. The largest fish caught will win the lucky fisherman $10,000 CASH. Most years the prize payout reaches 200 or more places.

The Tournament wraps up today.  For information about it, visit http://www.kdsalmon.com/.  Results for the tournament are posted to their Facebook page.

Full Moon and Fireworks

The folks who attended the 2011 Kewaunee Trout Festival enjoyed two spectacular displays…the fireworks show and a full moon.

I positioned myself at nearly surface level with the Kewaunee harbor in order to capture the reflection off the water.  I think the reflections are as appealing as any other part of the images.  In fact, I’m considering combining a number of the firework reflections to create a colorful image of its own.

This was my first opportunity to capture fireworks with my Sony SLT-A55V.  I wish the fireworks show was a few hours long, rather than a few minutes.  I need that kind of time to really experiment with settings and angles, etc.  

For my photography friends, here are some of the specifics… Of course, I had the camera on a tripod, had it in manual mode, on the “Bulb” setting and used a remote trigger…F/11.0, ISO 200, 13-seconds, 28.0 mm.

I’m pleased with a number of the images I captured and will be posting more, so check back. Or, better yet, just subscribe to the RSS Feed.
