Spent the weekend at Pinery Provincial Park on lake Huron this past weekend with the wife and kids. We had a pretty good time, but the weekend was just not long enough.

Very nice! I'm hungry now, that chicken looks great :) . The beach pic under the chicken is quite captivating, nice job.

Dang man, you are (seriously) a very talented shooter. Your MX shots always rock, this stuff is awesome as well. Number 7 just kills. Well done.

Squid never disappoints! Heck, you made hot dogs look downright delicious. Not an easy task! Well done, as usual.

Thanks guys. I figured a few of you would get a chuckle out of the chicken shot. Between breakfast, lunch and dinner, I spent a good part of the day cooking over that fire, and consumed a few adult pops.

This was the first real time I have used the MarkII since the shutter failure at Millville. Seems to be working just fine. All shots were with a 17-40 with the exception of the last shot. It was with the 300 2.8 and a Sigma 1.4X attached. Not bad for wide open at f4 and ISO 1600. The sunset stuff was giving me troubles, but I think I did ok for a first attempt. My biggest problem was I was at the beach too early, and with 2 little ones with me, my patients were running low, so I actually missed the sunset because I just had to get out of there. I should have toughed it out and waited, but oh well, there’s always next time.

Those are all amazing! How do you take a picture of food and make it look like more than just breakfast?

I'm a hell of a cook. :laugh:

Seriously, I didn't do anything special. That's just the way it looked.
