Tellik Serpent

You've heard it here first!!  The Serpent of Tellik Inlet has finally been photographed by yours truly.

It looks suspiciously like my photo of the three whales but on further review a head can clearly be seen on this new photo.

You be the judge!

Special thanks to the West Baffin Eskimo Co-op Print shop for alerting me to this photo I overlooked.

Three Bowhead Whales

Three whales are better than one.

The cry went out at work that bowhead whales where in the inlet and after most of us seeing them from the windows all of work emptied out for the chase.  Of course this hunt was done with cameras.  I did get a couple of good photos but some folks went out and chased them in boats which obviously irritated them.  After that they dove down and only came up a couple more times.

It was two years ago that Michele and I got the photos of a bowhead whale that came into Tellik Inlet.  You can find those post here and here.  We were the only ones that got a photo with the tail in the air.

I guess if a person is to start blogging on a regular basis again this is a good way to start.

The photos are not of the best quality just given that it was the worst time of day and weather for them.  It was getting dark (4:00pm) and overcast.  Tried to fix them up as best as I could in Photoshop.


Three are better than one.  Think it was a  mother and two young ones.

Got one of the young ones blowing some air.

The last good site of them going around the point. 
 That is just the top of their heads sticking out of the water.

I decided to get Photoshop Elements and have been doing some initial digging into the program.  Will start posting some photos in a bit.  Kind of let the blog go down hill this year but will get the quality and quantity back up to par soon.

Thanks for the continued patience.

Here is a photo from our vacation in August.

Me, Michele and a rock holding the camera.  Good times.

Almost Back

As you can see by the blog title things have been changing.

Michele and I are back together and enjoying the adventure of getting to know each other again.  It's been a hard road getting to this point but usually the things that are most valuable take the most work to obtain.

My laptop had died a month ago and it's only been in the last couple of weeks that a new one has come to my possession.  Have been getting everything put back on the computer but can't find my Photoshop program in the boxes.  Might be an excuse to get the full version of Photoshop instead of Elements.  Have been wanting to try out the HDR option available with Photoshop.  And this is another excuse to why the blog has not been updated in so long.  Once things are settled and I get all the stuff up and running with the new laptop (love windows 7) there will be a flurry of post on the blogs with photos over the last 6 months.  Just because the blog has not been updated in awhile doesn't mean the photo taking has stopped.

I was recognized in public the other day as the M of Cape Dorset.  Kind of neat when asked if I was the "M" in The M of Cape Dorset.  Unfortunately I wasn't up to my best being in a rush and was shorter than I normally would be.  Had to get some tire patches for a hole in my Honda tire and had someone waiting for me.  My fault the flat happened and it's fixed now.

Thanks to my loyal stalkers to the site.  The restart will be soon.  Promise.  You can trust me.

Not Dead

The blog isn't dead just in a brief hibernation.

Life has been getting in the way of my blogging.

Once again I will be up and running again soon with some changes.

Me & I

What's that in the eye?

The light of the moon reflecting through some high cirrus clouds to make a moonbow or a half corona.
Got lucky last night and happen to be out and looked up at the right time.

The weather has finally changed and it is now bitterly cold out.

The 2010 Nunies

Well it seems the impossible has happened and I got nominated for the best Nunavut Blog for 2010.  Clair from The House & other arctic Musings left me a message letting me know I was nominated.  Cool.  Don't think I will win over Townie Bastard or Bulldogs & Babies but it's an honor that someone liked the blog enough to nominate me.  Those and the other nominated blogs are very well written.  My blog has always been more of a photography blog.  I will have to hit Clair up for a photography section next year. 

So if you are a fan of the site please give me a vote at Clairs site!  Just click this LINK to go to the post to vote.

Moon, Juipter and Lights

I'm trying to get motivated to get out and do some photography again.  The lights were dim tonight but there was still the opportunity for some nice photos if you knew where to look.

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!
