Photo Request

Roger Kugler

Enthusiastic about Wooden Canoes
Hi All,
I need your photos of canoes in fall and winter, ie., autumn leaves in the bottom of the boat, a frosty deck plate, canoe stem breaking through thin ice, any photo that captures the essence of the wooden canoe in these seasons. Closeups are probably better than landscapes with a "canoe in there somewhere". I'll use these on the carousel of the main page. Email me directly or post a reply so others can vote!
Thanks i advance,
Roger

This is probably the best one I have. It would have been better with a buffalo plaid wool shirt, but unfortnately it was about 85 degrees that day.

LOVES Wooden Canoes
Craig,

Virtual repairs are so much easier (as is straightening out the horizon a bit). Skip the cracks and keep enjoying the canoe, looks great!

Michigan Canoe Nut
Me too Denis. I have driven past that boat house for 25 years on my way home from my inlaws camp in Eagle Bay as well as many canoe trips! You can see it just before the Old Forge Art Center as you go south tucked back in a little bay. I always wanted a photo of it and we went on an evening paddle and I knew just where to go. They also used the boat house as the scene for this years painting and poster print! Keep the faith Denis, I'm sendin positive thoughts your way!!!!

Heres a link to the Art Center and poster....sorry for the slight highjack here.
