Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Not this trip. I've seen it before, though and I'm sure he's still there.

It was just a little bit low, judging from water marks on the rocks. I'm surprised it wasn't lower for this time of year.

I'm still learning my Gopro camera - here is the camp site. I'm using an ND4 filter lens.

Nice photo. Why did you use the neutral density filter?

I usually use ND only when it's very bright outside. I'm considering purchasing a variable neutral density filter. They are a little more than a standard ND, usually around $120 for a good brand.

BTW, how is your wife doing. Is she pretty much healed up?

I don't know much about photography, at all.

The ND filter was part of a set my wife got me for Christmas. I don't know much about what kind of filter does what, or why. Pretty much just winging it in the dark. I was playing the the ND4 because it looked like the other, higher numbers might have been too dark for the time of day.

Wife's face is healed up, but she's in constant pain from her back and neck. Docs say the neck pain is most likely still from the wreck - she has a disc that keeps slipping out and pressing on the nerves, sending her into terrible headaches. If they fuse her neck, she'll never have normal movement in it, again. We are trying other things to strengthen the muscles and hopefully prevent a bone fusion.

You are better off with a clear filter for protection most of the time.

The ND filter is for reducing light when other sun is too bright and you find your photos are washed out. ND is just the opposite of what you want in the evening.

I didn't even get a fishing license this year. I'm spoiled with ocean fishing, and don't do very well in fresh water, anymore. There was a time when I was a catfishing and trout fishing fool -- then I went fishing offshore and haven't been the same since.
