Sofa Mountain Panoramic

Sofa Mountain Panoramic - D800e, 70-200 @ 110mm, f/7.1, 1/125s
The last time I was in Alberta, it was last summer and I went on a road trip with the family and one of our stops was in Pincher Creek near Waterton Lakes National Park.  I drove past this area with a view of this range including Sofa Mountain and returned that evening in the hope of some color; sadly there wasn't much.

Its a beautiful Friday, the weekend is about to start and like this guy I think what I'd like to do the most is take a nap surrounded by trees.

Bicycle and Planter Box

Bicycle and Planter Box - X100s, 35mm equiv., f/5.6, 1/40s, ISO 250
This past week, I was passing through Hamburg again for work and on the short walk to dinner one night spotted this scene.  I don't usually do a lot of street photography but figured this would be a good image to use Analog Efex Pro 2 and take a bit more creative liberty.

Hippo On the Run

Hippo On The Run - 1DX, 200-400 @ 280mm, f/5.6, 1/13s, ISO 800
This hippo surfaced, looked at me a for a bit and then took off running down the opposite bank.  The light was almost gone, it was about 6:45 pm so the only thing to do was drop the shutter speed and hope I could pan the heavy rig smoothly enough to get something workable.

Verreaux's eagle-owl

Verreaux's eagle-owl - 1DX, 200-400 @ 560mm, f/6.3, 1/640s, ISO 1600
The Verreaux's eagle-owl (but pointed out to me as the giant eagle owl) is the largest African owl.  Owls weren't on the top of my list when it came to the fauna I wanted to photograph in Botswana, but I enjoyed photographing the large variety of other non-iconic species as well as the iconic ones.
