Fantastic Winter Photo

Postby lindawing » December 10th, 2015, 11:50 pm

Most of you know that my brother Gary Minish takes wonderful photos. He recently posted this one on FB. It is not retouched in any way, and it's fantabulous. I thought you all might like it. ;-) Be sure to click the picture, then click the big X at the bottom right corner (if there is one...depends on your monitor), to see it better.

In the background, you can see the Pipeline Terminal, where Gary works. It's very camouflaged in the fresh snow setting.

Gary said about the photo:

"I was parked on the Kelsey Dock taking photos of the changing scenery as the weather broke up. All of a sudden this crimson kayaker paddled into the scene and the contrast of color was so striking I had to grab the opportunity and capture it. If anyone seeing this happens to recognize the kayaker from their kayak, dry suit, or hat, I would greatly appreciate knowing who it is so I can contact them. From a zoom in of a closer shot I was able to determine that it is probably a woman but I couldn't tell who."

Lisa...agreed!

Melody...it does, indeed! Because there was that skim of ice on the bay, it was probably down around 20. It rarely gets any colder than that, and any small amounts of ice move out with the tides. For Alaska, that's not cold, but...brrr!

Love it. And that it was a "happy accident" makes it even more special. :joy:

Have you seen any of his other stuff?

Check this out:
https://www.google.com/search?q=gary+mi ... 8&dpr=1.25

You'll see a lot of photos (all his), and a couple of Gary's. He is the one in the middle...not the guy with the glasses.
