Absolute All Time Favorite Photo

As we inch closer to ice out and nice weather getting out for a trip seems to be a lot more "real" than it was a month ago ... something I seen on another site I post at which helps to ante up the excitement was for folks to look through their archive and select one picture that they consider their favorite ... no matter whether its a sunset, pic of a big fish, group photo, campfire shot, wildlife, a family pet, etc ... remember it's not a contest for the best quality shot here ... its you personal favorite ... and you can either share the reason why or not .. entirely up to you.

Of course this would be a photo taken in Algonquin park ... this leaves me out since this spring is my first trip to the park ... but I'm looking forward to yours ...

Sorry I have 3 that I tend "bring me back to the moment" the best...

I followed this guy for an hour or so into the bush this past fall, slowly gaining his trust.

This one epitomizes winter camping in the park to me....again it just brings me right back to the moment...

I have so many favorites its hard to narrow them down,but this is one. I tried a trial HDR software so it has a watermark, but I did take the photo and it hangs on the wall at home[IMG][linked image][/IMG].

For nostalgic appeal, I like this shot taken in 1967 on Markus's favorite island on Maple Lake, as John watches the sun set over Ratrap Lake. It was our first trip together in the Park with Liz and Louise, a week from Kiosk to Erables and back to resupply (beer in bottles and canned foods were permitted in those days and we wanted to do it up right for their first trip), then another week through Manitou to Tea and back.

Awesome pictures Mike and Mark S

I think all my Algonquin pictures are all my all time favorites just because they were all taken in AP.

Here's a few more

Fav pic

April 8 2011, 10:35 AM 

This is one of my many favorites but it stands out to me because of the story behind it. I took my 12 and 9 year old boys on their first interior trip last year to Big Porc. We picked up our permit the day before at Canoe Lake so we could get onto Smoke at 7am (we were all very anxious/excited etc. etc.) We were the only ones on the docks and we were looking at this. The hour long paddle across Smoke was very surreal. We were the only ones on the lake, water was like glass, saw an otter and had 5 loons swim within 10 feet of the Canoe. Anyway, can't wait for our next trip...

Hey MG that is proof that it is not the gear, but the photographer that makes the picture! Well done sir!

I am looking at it right now hanging on my wall. I have had it blown up to become a 15" x 11" photo. It isn't on my computer, don't have a scanner so I can't post it.

Regulars of this site though will remember this photo. It was taken at Sec Lake around 5 years ago and in photo is me with 3 beautful university students who paddled by my campsite looking for a site themselves, asked if I had heard of the bear sighting in the area when they checked in, yes I had, and then telling me this was their first trip ever in the interior, were petrified of bears, and asked if they could camp with me which I thought over for a long time LOL and said why not.

Ended up being a very "interesting" weekend, in May for 3 days.

Bo you have to find a way to get that photo up in this thread ... now thats a photo with a story behind it ...

How about taking a picture with your digital camera right now and post a pic of a pic .. quality should be good enough ...

signs of bears

April 9 2011, 9:16 AM 

Bo,
Where can I get some of your "There are bears about; camp with others" signs?
Maybe you could send a photo of one in use.

I'd love to see that photo on the wall.

Well, I found the thread and it's a good read:
http://www.network54.com/Forum/352882/message/1148862696/Back+again+from+Sec...mini+report

Bo, maybe you can get in touch with the girls and ask them to re-enact whatever was in that picture? Make it a new Algonquin tradition. Every 5 years or so, add a new picture to your wall happy.gif.

I don't have a digital camera so looks like you are out of luck.

However, I can bring it to the PEG if you are planning on attending and want to see it. The picture was posted at one time on AA, but I guess time erases it or something.

PEG

April 9 2011, 5:21 PM 

I'd really like to go to the PEG trip ... sounds like a lot of laughs ... but one spring trip is my quota ... I hope to make another trip in mid summer so hopefully some of the folks here will be in the vicinity ... once i figure out where i'm going ... and someone to lug in all my gear ... and someone to wash dishes ... etc.

more pics anyone ?
