Ferris Wheel

From the Elizabethtown Fair a few weeks ago… the giant (I use the word loosely) ferris wheel.  It is always an awesome time walking around fairs – especially as it gets dark.  Both the lights and the people come out!

Night Sky

One thing that has always amazed me about going to Canada: the night sky.  It is h-u-g-e.  If you live in a city and rarely get out to “the country” – you have to.  I live practically amongst corn fields and I think the northern sky is huge.  Being able to look straight up and not see anything in your peripheral vision is truly amazing – especially on a clear, cool, calm night.  The next few shots are those of a few evenings while “on the rock.”  Please click the link to the first picture to view all of the sizes and view the original.  I was amazed at what can be captured in 30 seconds.
