Life Through The Lens – Part II – September 19 Image

After a very long day of travel we finally made it to Agrigento in the south of Sicily. Unfortunately our luggage did not due to airlines who do not seem to understand that 45 minutes of connection time in gigantic airports is just not going to work. Oh well. Hopefully it arrives tomorrow before the wedding.

This is a shot on the last leg of our flights, somewhere over the Italian Alps.

Since I am heading to Europe this afternoon I am posting the image of the day early. This is a shot of reeds at Grindstone Marsh. I did like the colour image at first but after playing with the Black & White image I like it more.

This afternoon I dropped by Grindstone Marsh again. Today I had a great choice of birds to photograph! There was an Osprey flying about on the hunt for fish and this immature Blue Heron posing on top of one of the huts.

“Mirror, mirror on the water…who is the best looking Sandpiper around?”

Dropped by Grindstone Marsh again this morning. The Solitary Sandpiper that I saw yesterday was still hanging around.

Just before noon today I dropped by Grindstone Marsh. It is a beautiful day and lots of folks were out and about. There were some awesome photographers at the marsh and they had captured great shots of Bald Eagles and Ospreys earlier. On one of the ponds was this Heron. He was quite a distance away but was not moving a lot. Since my birding photography skills need a lot of work, I tend to like to shoot them when they are not moving! :) I simply love the softness of this image and the reflection. This is one of my favourite bird pictures I have taken this year!

After the rains this morning I went out to the field behind my house and took a few shots of the weeds in the fields. However the sunlight was pretty strong and I did not like the harsh light on the field. I did like this shot however of the Bullrush. Have a great Saturday all!

This evening I headed into Burlington and took several images of the Burlington pier. However I was not happy with any of them. While I was there I had also turned my lens towards the Burlington waterfront and off to the left, the Skyway bridge. In this particular shot there is also a plane that made an appearance through my image! What I really like about this image is the cloud movement..wow! :)

Beams of light…

I was a wee bit busy today and with the late afternoon rains I simply ran out of time to get out and shoot. So I am going to post another shot from the Hamilton factory shoot last evening. I turned this shot to black & white. I simply love how it turned out. It creates this mood and look that I can’t stop liking.
