Presque Isle Winter Shooting

After installing a new garage door opener, I received a call from Ron asking if I'd like to go to Presque Isle to take pictures. Sure, I said! And we ventured forth. I shot most of the day in aperture priority at f/5.6. I didn't notice that my ISO was set to 400 (I'd have chosen 100), but did remark a few times that 1/4000 even at +1 exposure compensation did seem awfully fast. Derrr. All shots done with the Rebel XTi and the EF 28-135 IS/USM. Only some levels, white balance, and cropping done in post-processing.

There weren't nearly as many ice fishermen as I would have thought:

My camera's AF mode was also set to single-shot. I'd have preferred, of course, to have AI Servo AF activated. Still, I did manage to capture one good shot of a seagull, though, because it was flying just about perpendicular to me:

We spent quite a few hours at Presque Isle. By about 4:30, the sun was low in the sky and creating some nifty shadows:

Ron Richardson (of this site) asked Carey and I to go, so along the way I snagged some shots of Ron. In the first shot, I'm not sure what he sees in the bench, but I'm sure it involves snow.
