You're killing me! It's only 9/7 and we've got awesome photos up on the messageboard. It's like I should wait till next month to add my own photo! I'm going to have to really dig into my files to find a good one....
Fire on Pine Portage Bay peninsula - our Quetico trip 9/10 - 9/16.
It was amazing to see the smoke from this fire from a couple miles away and then get right up to it as we paddled our way to Dore' Lake just about 6 days ago!
I'm sure glad that my fire wasn't that huge! If the smoke I saw was as big as your picture, no way would I have gotten right up near the shoreline to take pictures! I was only 8 feet away. Your fire would have melted my canoe! :-)
Congrats to Ely Bound. I'm still trying to figure out how you got all the waves to look like clouds. From my experience it would never be calm enough for a reflection. Seems like the wind is always blowing from the direction I'm going.
Thanks a lot for all of the comments about the September photo! She is sitting on a rock outcropping about six feet above the water, at a campsite on Lake Two. Opportunities like this are one of the many things I like about the Boundary Waters. After this photo was taken we canoed into Lake Three. The clouds eventually lightened up, but the water surface stayed mirror-smooth. Spectacular place.
