Shooting with a shallow depth of field tonight.  Breaking the rules... instead of the eyes in focus, I'm going for the nose in focus. I didn't succeed on all of these, but I like 'em.

013/365 The Mattamuskeet Lodge http://karlfisherphotography.com/blog/2018/1/the-mattamuskeet-lodge The Mattamuskeet LodgeThe Mattamuskeet LodgeDay 13
Took a trip to Eastern NC, to Lake Mattamuskeet. It is the location of Mattamuskeet National Wildlife Refuge. This refuge as well as surrounding public and private lands in eastern North Carolina are a major wintering site for waterfowl including ducks like northern pintail and green-wing teal, geese like Canada geese and tundra swans.

This is a century-old hunting lodge on Lake Mattamuskeet. Mattamuskeet Lodge first opened as a pumping station in 1914 in an attempt to drain the lake and replace it with farmland and a town called New Holland. The federal government ended that experiment when it bought the property in the 1930s, and the building was converted to a hunting lodge, with an observation tower that resembles a lighthouse.
It was closed in 2010 when engineers found structural damage so severe that the second-floor ballroom could collapse under the weight of an event.
Renovations scheduled (legislated) to be complete by June 30, 2018. No estimate on when it will be opened to the public.

Went out looking for icy fountains this evening. Been below freezing for 5 or 6 days now, and some fountains are really iced over. Not this one. There were two other fountains above this, and I think they would have been icy if they hadn't been removed... that limited the ice! But this one is pretty, and was fun to photograph. The flames should be bigger, at least on a cold night like this. 21° this evening.
I will find an icy fountain this weekend!
