New Cottage on the Lake

My sister and brother in law just bought a cottage on the west side of the state. It's on a lake, so last weekend we helped them move the jet boat and boat hoist.

Here's pictures of the weekend we were up north to take the hoist apart. Then this weekend all of the parts to the shore station/boat lift were loaded on to a trailer and strapped down.

Here is a panorama of the lake and cottage.

I tried out my homemade ND filter with my camera. It really makes a calm looking photograph, especially when it's converted to black and white. This picture was a 30 second exposure.

Here's a time lapse video of us putting in the dock and putting the boat hoist together. It only took 2.5 hours to do but unfortunately my camera battery died after about 2 hours. So you miss seeing us push it over the sea wall and into the water.

The rest of the weekend was spent swimming and watching max jumping off the dock, into the water.
