More Food!!

This was taken on my Lac le Jeune trip one partially overcast day. A couple of other photographers and myself spent about 2 hours photographing these Flickers as the mom and dad took turns bringing back food to the chicks.

The bottom of the wing was cropped slightly in the original image so I had to do some reconstructive surgery in Photoshop. Not something I do often with my images but for this one it seemed worthwhile.

Technical Specs: Canon 1D4, 800 f/5.6 IS, f/7.1, 1/3200s, ISO 1250.

After many months, I finally had the chance to do some astro imaging last night. The necessary confluence of factors were present to make it possible. First, we had clear skies with good transparency. Second, I wasn't wiped out from chasing Maya around. Once again, being only 200 ft. above sea level and living near so much light makes widefield imaging very difficult.

Technical Specs: Canon 450D (modified /w Hutech LPS filter), 50 f/1.2L, f/4, 8s subs (10 exposures).

The Waved Albatross is also known as the Galapagos Albatross. I have slowly been going through more of my Galapagos images, but there are so many of them.

Sol Duc Falls

Sol Duc Falls is in Olympic National Park. Fortunately, it was cloudy the day this was taken (though not raining), as I prefer an overcast day for waterfall photography than a sunny one. I had to go around the railing to get into what I thought was the best place to photograph this waterfall.

Technical Specs: Canon 1Ds3, 24 TS-E II, f/13, 5s, ISO 100.

Happy Canada Day

Happy Canada Day to all my Canuck's out there. Seemed only appropriate to post this picture today. We were fortunate last night as it ended up being reasonably calm and had good light. I happened to be in the ideal position to capture this Loon while flapping.

Technical Specs: Canon 1D4, 800 f/5.6 IS, f/8, 1/4000s, ISO 1250.
