Camping pics

By admin, January 14, 2011 8:01 pm

Went camping over NewYears.  Here are a few pics.  Click on them for the way they are meant to be viewed.  And if I haven’t already made it clear, I’m a big fan of Asian landscape painting, Wucius Wong, and Yoshikazu Shirakawa.

This is an 8-second exposure of the trees above our gigantic fire.  We would never have a fire this big anytime but the coldest days in winter, in a damp region.  But in early January we felt like a crew of cossacks  in old Mother Russia, throwing whole trees on the fire and sipping whiskey.   Good times.

Eh, Here ya go!

Turns out we got some snow.   If this keeps up for a few more years we won’t have the damned fire ants around here, so everybody pray for snow.  Oh, once again, these are only thumbnails, so please click on the pictures to see them at a decent viewing  size.  Here’s snow on a briar patch:

Here’s another.  Snow on the Cypress.   And on the Spanish moss, which you don’t see too often.

And another shot of the same briar patch covered in snow.  You know, it would be completely forbidding in the warm season.

To dispense with formalities, this is where I’m dumping my pictures, and maybe I’ll use this blog for something more down the road but not right now, just pictures.   You are welcome to view, download, or use any pics here for any purpose public or private, but if you use for your own web page or anything else commercial or non-private, please give me proper accreditation.  Leave a comment and I’ll get back to you.   — The Mgmt.

(BTW, most of the pics in these posts are what’s known as “thumbnails.”  clicking on most of them will open up the full-sized version, in a new window.)

Of some historical note, the three bridges above cross the Roanoke river at the town of Weldon, NC, and the ruined bridge was destroyed by the Union army in the American Civil War.   I stop by there every few months and take a pic or two of it, and eventually I’ll assemble a collection of them all together.  Click the image for a large version.  Use as you like, enjoy, but give me a holler if you do, and accredit me if you use it for anything public or for profit.

Most Washingtonians know this sight.  This is the C&O  canal along the Patomac, a project started but not finished by George Washington himself.   This is the canal as it passes through the beautiful Great Falls park.

And here is the classic shot of the US Capitol, probably taken with my old Fuji S5100.  I use Autopano Pro to stitch multiple pics together, and it is awesome.

Eh, here’s another.

Another pic of some swamp along the Neuse river in NC.   Nobody seems to appreciate the beauty of this country, mainly because of the bugs.

And below is my gym.  Click it for a VERY large panoramic image.

This deserves to be an album cover:

This is a pic I’ve decided to actually title,  ”Degrade.”  It’s just a snapshot I took of a cheap garden statue in Washington DC, using my first megapixel camera back in 2000.

A few panoramic photos to hold you over (until I provide some real content)

Greets, just adding a single photo so far today.  Went out for a drive with my girl and took a nice snapshot of some swamp in Beaufort County, between Aurora and Chocowinity.    Click the pic for a really big version.  Be warned your browser may refuse to open it, in which case you must right-click and save-as.   If you like it give me a holler.

OK, one more.  This was taken somewhere in North Carolina, I’m certain of that.

Ok, here’s another, taken last spring.   The full size version was saved as a progressive jpg, BTW, so it opens in your browser window in two stages; first out of focus and then it sharpens up the details.
