    One for Stef.

    Some shots of the Canada Day fireworks at Wiarton, Ontario celebrating 150 years of Confederation. Taken from a couple of miles away across Colpoy's Bay.

    Thanks David... nice to hear from you again. Wonderful set of fireworks, very sharp. I know Wiarton. I'll be at Owen Sound in a few more weeks for the Salmon derby, just a hop up the bay to Colpoy's....

    If the Salmon Derby starts in a few weeks summer must be coming to an end.

    Edit.. I thought it.was a smart idea going to the dock at Colpoy's Bay for the fireworks. It seemed like half the Peninsula had the same idea, it was packed.

    It was a smart idea Dave, your photos show that. All you needed was a square metre of space for your tripod...

    We got there early and we're about the sixth or seventh vehicle. By the time the fireworks started the parking area was jammed, nobody could have got out if they wanted to and people had started parking down the sides of the road.

    Edit. And while I think of it, how's your bear situation? We're seeing more activity than normal this year. And it's not just us, others are saying the same.

    Colpoy's Bay 45 minutes before the fireworks started.



    And about 7 hours after they finished.

    Waters nice and calm on the bay. I have moved south to the Midland area, the property up north was to remote and labour intensive for me as I aged and there is always a new adventure around the corner. Now split the year between Ontario and Florida so bears are no longer a challenge....

    In that case there could be a thunderstorm heading your way. It hit here just after 6.

    Yes, they are not croc's however, they are alligators, no croc's in Florida. You'll have to wait until I get down there again in the winter for one and until I figure out where all the pictures I had in the gallery went and how do I access the old ones or how do I add some new ones. You'll note that since the forum changed my pictures have been rare to non-existent...

    Hurray... I got one into the new gallery...



    but its the wrong size
