Dinner Time!

I found another wetlands nature park with boardwalks, this time in Tampa, Florida. I went for a walk for an hour or so this afternoon and managed to catch this Grey Heron with a Catfish.

Favourite Images of 2016

As 2016 approaches its end, I am taking a few minutes to reflect back on the year. From a personal perspective, it was a crazy busy year. 108 flights for business travel and 10 for personal. I was away from home more than 80% of the year. From a photography perspective, I did one amazing trip to the Yukon Territory in Canada’s north. I met up with some photography friends and I made some new ones as well. Other than that and a whirlwind tour to Austria, my photography took a back seat in 2016. I think I may have taken more images with my iPhone(s) than with any of my DSLR’s.
 
I have many reasons to be grateful and happy in life and one of them is my amazing and patient wife! She has always supported me in my endeavours and is always there for me.
 
There are 2 photographers I would like to say thank you too in 2016. These 2 guys have become not only friends, but guys that I am excited to see what amazing images they have have created every time they post! Dave Brosha and Paul Zizka are such amazing and talented photographers! I urge you to check out their work!
 
I am looking forward to an exciting 2017 as I have 2 major photography trips planned! One with the guys mentioned above and another with my lovely wife!
 
I have put together a short slideshow of my favourite images of 2016. Please feel free to share!
 
I would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year! Be safe and enjoy life!

Lonely Tree

I went for a walk this morning to Bayfront Park in Hamilton. It was a reasonably nice morning. Lots of birds were flying about and collecting food. During my walk I came across this lonely tree by itself and as I was snapping the shots, a couple of birds flew into the frame.

Calling For Her Mate

This female Bald Eagle, spotted at Wilkes Dam in Brantford, Ontario today, was calling for her mate. Me thinks he was probably doing the male thing and sleeping somewhere! 🙂
