Vote for the boat name...

Thanks to everyone for the many great suggestions for a boat name! I've picked my 6 favorites and put a poll here on the blog to decide the final choice (it's on the top right of the page). Please vote for the one you like the best. Whichever name gets the most votes is what I'll go with!

I'm making good use of the boat and spent all of today out on eastern Georgian Bay touring with geologist  Nick Culshaw. He showed me locations (and provided geologic explanations) for some of the most remarkable rock formations and patterns I've ever seen. For the next few days, I'll be camping out on remote islands to shoot the formations in dawn/dusk light.  

Here's the boat out today (dreary light) on Georgian Bay. My friends came along, hence all of the clothing and gear.


  1. I can already see some pretty amazing formations right there where you are docked - give me a napkin for the drool. I will look forward to seeing these in some future images...

  2. It's cool to see that my suggested name (EOS) made the list of possible names. That is one awesome view. Can't wait to see more.

    I'm hurt, all this time I thought you liked mine best! Actually your choices are great, hard to choose..... but my pick is "EthanMeleg.calm"

    Can you follow the rational for the choice.

    Great photo!
