Another Day

Well, another day. Remarkably beautiful outside, this time of year. I have just finished processing about 40 kilograms of fresh honey and it is fantastic this year. There is no sensation like opening the hive (I am a beekeeper, after all) and listening to the bees hum, smelling the scent of fresh bees and honey and soft beeswax, and licking your fingers as you pry apart frame after frame of sweet honey. What is more amazing, is that the bees allow you to remove part of their home, and steal their honey, and they don't get too upset about the whole process.
One of the problems I had with this blog, at the start, was after I completed, where did it go? I was a little snarly in the first post, but I still stand by what I wrote. It took me a while to find it again. Should have book marked it!
I was out in Peterborough Ontario taking a few photos at the "Head of the Trent" for my daughter, who is a team coach, (sort of like getting paid, you have to do these photos, like it is a family obligation!) so they were more or less, cheesecake photos. I hate cheesecake photos... but then, it was more like sports photography. I don't mind that so much! I used my Nikon D300 and the Nikkor 24-120 1:3.5 - 5.6 G ED lens. It was a beautiful day as well. Just downloading the photos to the computer now. Shooting RAW at 200 ISO, and what the hell, why wouldn't you shoot RAW? I could talk about that all day. That is why I actually purchased the Nikon P7000 - it shoots RAW! And it's a lot smaller than my D300 for back packing across Gros Morne National Park. Regardless, I digress. If you have any questions about any photo or anything I've said, then please respond. (Of course, up to now, I don't have any followers! ;-))
