quote DeterminedOrange: "Was the rock furniture (in background) there then? Someone worked pretty hard on that." I came back from fishing and two of my boys had done that. I thought about objecting, but the chair was kinda comfy and the view was great :) Besides that, I figured if they were tough enough to get it there....I didn't want to piss them off.
Ribeye anyone? South end of Disapointment August 10, 2010.

They were good. I'll be doing it again. We had 6 guys eating on about 40 of em. Not really anything to fill the belly, actually it was an after diner leisure activity. I had been meaning to try this for years and finally did it. We put fish parts in a fishing net and let it sit in the water for 15-20 min at a time and when you went back there were 5-10 in the net each time. cooked them up and ate them with the evening libations. I liked them, could of used some butter though.
I snapped this of two of my brothers on Jap Lake's NW camp #492 after playing with the shutter speed/aperture a bit. In the last moments of daylight Brevan is reflecting on the blown down/burned skyline in the background. Darien is making sure his headlamp is ready for the darkness. We were fortunate to have been able to have a fire due to restrictions.

quote HowardSprague: "Really enjoying this photo contest thread. Bapabear, yours blows up real nice for a desktop background, hope you don't mind!"
Don't mind at all. That was a particularly cold and rainy day. I'll never forget my friend, John, standing next to fire to dry out/warm up and the steam was rolling off his boots. It's a good memory for me.
About me: I like the smell of the earth, the touch of the waves, the taste of berries, the sight of trees, the sound of laughter, and the feeling of being fully alive.
I know it is a dark picture, but this is Clove Lake with my buddy Zac tending the flame. Whenever I am out camping with him, he is always the last up, stroking the fire. This image is what pops into my mind whenever I think of a campfire; someone leaning over it, getting it brighter, while the darkness hugs us all.
