National Geographic photographers wanted to get close-ups of a tiger, but these beasts won’t let you come close. So the photographers set up motion-sensitive cameras, and struck gold!
We at The Camera Store take photography a little too seriously. Here’s proof. (No cameras were harmed in the making of this film.) Special Thanks to: Chris Niccolls Shawn Chamberlain Dave Paul Stephen Lemmer Mitch Klassen Dean Rumpel Peter Gold Brent Taylor Shot and Edited by Jordan Drake

Five steps to take before you give away a PC, including helping to prevent identity theft.
Is your laptop or desktop computer running slowly and not handling tasks or games well enough for your current needs? Do the latest and greatest applications slow your system to a crawl? Do you need more RAM to run powerful graphics editors and virtual machines, but find your computer is limited to only 2 or 4 gigs? If so, it may be time to purchase a new computer. However, what can and should you do with your old machine besides dumping it into the trash?
* Many charities and schools can put older computers to good use as teaching aids or to provide to the less-fortunate….

I don’t often visit the Carter Lake southwest from Loveland. I have much easier and faster access to the Horsetooth Reservoir and other smaller lakes like Lonetree or Boedecker. Nevertheless, I took my JJK Supernova kayak for a quick paddle around the Carter on March 30, 2012. The full lap is around 6.5 miles. It may be shorter in summer when sailboat anchorage takes over the northern part of the lake. The water level was much lower than in Horsetooth Reservoir.
Information from Larimer County Parks and Open Lands website:
Three miles long and about one mile wide, this beautiful 1,100-acre reservoir is surrounded by 1,000 acres of public lands. It’s a great place for fishing, sailing, water skiing, camping, picnicking, swimming, scuba diving, and rock climbing.
As part of the Colorado-Big Thompson Project to divert water from the west slope to the east slope for drinking water, irrigation, and hydropower generation, the reservoir is jointly operated by the Bureau of Reclamation and the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District who manage water levels for irrigation, municipal, and industry use. Larimer County manages recreation.
Carter Lake requires entrance and camping permits, and is open year round. At 5,760 feet in elevation, it is nestled in the foothills southwest of Loveland, Colorado, and northwest of Berthoud, Colorado.
There are three boat ramps. I used one near North Pines Campground. The second one is in the Carter Lake Marina, and the third at the South Shore Campground. I believe that is possible to launch a kayak also at some day time use areas along the eastern shore.

Real 3D PC benchmarking program from new Devil may cry 4 demo using the Tridef 3d drivers which does hit performance hard,demo works smoother without 3d.You can use any 3d glasses from the drop down menu below the video.The red\blue\cyan or magenta\green work good for anaglyph option,I tried the ones from the coraline DVD I bought from Wal-mart if you get the 3d version they give 5 pairs for free,same with the DVD My bloody valentine 3d,they give those 5 pairs too.
Bestselling author Joe McNally (The Moment It Clicks and The Hotshoe Diaries) has written another accessible, entertaining book – Sketching Light: An Illustrated Tour of the Possibilities of Flash. In contrast to his earlier volumes, which were often rich with images and reminiscences from his storied editorial career, his latest book is more technical, covering methods for creating and shaping light using all manner of strobes. This is far from a prescriptive ‘how to’ guide though, says Adam Koplan.
One of my favourite, enjoy

Saturday, April 21, 2012 – a very full paddling day on the North Platte River in Wyoming. It was a training run with Rob Bean before our incoming Canyonlands trip (down the Green River from town of Green River to the confluence and up the Colorado River to Moab).
I paddled Sea Wind canoe and Rob his Kruger boat (Sawyer Loon). The weather was sunny and beautiful, but with a strong head wind during most of the day. The head wind combined with a shallow and relatively slow river (below 1000 cfs below I-80) made our run longer and tougher than expected. We started at Treasure Island about 9am after early morning drive from Fort Collins and finish well after sunset at Fort Steele (I-80 boat ramp).
Spring was still very early along the North Platte – no green leaves, but a lot of wildlife: geese, ducks, bald eagles, herons, deer, otter, and later after sunset numerous beavers. The last memorable picture: the deer silhouette high above the river on a rocky edge against the fading sky.
Most difficult part of the trip: driving home after paddling.
57.6 miles, moving time: 10:00h, stopped time: 1:32h, overall average speed: 5 mph, max speed: 10.3 mph.
I was paddling with a Spot device and was recording a live trace. Please note that the trace is displayed on two pages for some reasons.
The pictures below were shot with my Pentax Optio W30 camera during paddling except two pictures shot on land with Canon 5D Mark II near Eagle Nest Rapid. Well, you can see difference between a waterproof point-and-shoot-camera and a full frame DSLR. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to shoot more around sunset – we were running behind the schedule.
