It was a beautiful day out today, so I went to Vantage Point in town. It's on the St. Clair River, just before the mouth of Lake Huron. Boat Nerd World Headquarters are located there. I was hoping to catch site of the tall ships on their way up the waterways to Bay City. My hour long wait turned into the whole day waiting. So I took advantage of the situation to practice with my zoom lens. First I saw these geese, just lazing along the riverfront.

Across the river in Canada, this plane was taking off. I could barely see what I was taking a picture of it was so sunny, and everything reflected off the water.
So it was a treat when I downloaded the pictures and found they turned out so well, from such a distance!

Then I took pictures of the two church towers that are inland in Canada. I never noticed the different crosses, as they're so far away!
I caught this picture of a seagull on top on one of the lights. And then, what I'd been waiting for! A tall ship from Germany! Wait a minute...the sails weren't up, and it looked no different than any other big sail boat as far as I'm concerned, oh well, I can chalk that up to what my Dad would say, "Nah I don't want to go, I saw one of those once." Nice picture though,

I'd say you didn't waste your time, Laurie. Those are beautiful pictures. The Canadian Geese are beautiful, the plane taking off just makes my heart soar, even the churches and the bird are pretty. Great work!

It's amazing how we just go for a walk and see amazing pictures such as these. Great job girlfriend! Don't you love the zoom it's like having binoculars built in. Just what these old eyes needed.
