Happy July Celebrations Everyone!
On July 1st, we celebrated what is commonly known as Canada’s birthday. More accurately, Canada became a separate kingdom on July 1, 1867. Although, it wasn’t until 1982 that some political rights held by the United Kingdom (Britain) were finally shed, when the Canadian constitution was patriated. WOW, as a nation we are quite young. Even our American neighbours have almost 100 years on us! For those of you north of the border, the United States of America received their independence from the monarchy on July 4th, 1776.
Given the collective propensity for all things outdoors I anticipate many of you will be/have been enjoying fireworks displays across North America (and no doubt beyond) this coming week as July 4th or Independence Day (USA) is just around the corner. We would like to be a part of your celebrations and share pictures of your special moments with all of our guests and newsletter subscribers. Krista and Meryl will send everyone who submits a picture of a fireworks display they attended a Wilderness North ball cap. Let us know where the picture was taken, a brief description and any other details of your celebration you would like to share. The pictures need to be clear and we will award a jacket for the best picture. Please note it might take four to six weeks to receive the cap or jacket by mail. Remember to buy some extra batteries or to plug in your rechargeable batteries now. If you’re like me, you no doubt have missed the perfect picture in the past as your camera mysteriously closes the lens as you bring it up for the shot.
So to get you started I thought I would share some tips that I have found online to take my perfect picture tonight…..from a boat on Thunder Bay’s waterfront. I am not much of a photographer, but, would like to learn more about the art. Here is a link that I found helpful. http://content.photojojo.com/guides/11-tips-for-sparkling-fireworks-photos/
Good luck and have fun!
