Yet More Miscellaneous Pictures

September 16, 2000

My next digital camera is darn well going to have a decent optical zoom on it! This is the biggest woodpecker I've ever seen, I think. Its body was about a foot high, and he had a bright red cap. You can sort of see him in this picture, but that's about it.
The woodpecker again. Then I gave up.
There are a couple of old manhole towers beside the creek. (The creek is *not* clean water!) Last time I was walking there I noticed that this one has water flowing out of a large hole in its base. Strange. I guess its a storm sewer line with a spring draining into it or something. There is also a hole on the right of the top that you could likely get to, but I didn't try.
Here is a closeup (hah!) of some flowers growing wild below the boundary hedge of a house on the edge of the ravine. They are a bit overgrown with grass!

Some pictures from my balcony, mid fall 2000

In August of 2001, Edmonton hosted the World Games in Track and Field. Down in Kinsmen park, most nights of the event they put on a free evening concert, featuring various artists, and ending with a light show. They called the light show "The Northern Lights", and it included 30 of the "Sky Cannon" searchlights, a pair of green lasers, some coloured fireworks, and coloured spotlights shining around and on the waterfall from the high level bridge. Given that the lights were a night event, my camera did poorly. These two shots are the best I've got.
