Life Through The Lens – Part III – January 1 Image

Happy New Year everyone! Welcome to 2018!

The 3rd iteration of my Life Through The Lens project starts today. For the month of January I have chosen Ice & Wildlife as my themes. The reason for this choice will become clear in a few days. For my first image I was out late this afternoon looking for Snowy Owls. After speaking with a couple of photographer friends, I drove down to behind the St Catharines hospital, which used to be a popular location for them, and sure enough they are back! I spent some time hoping they would fly, but only spotted one off in the distance and could not get any decent shots of him. I would have spent longer, however the weather was changing for the worse and I wanted to head home. 

Don’t forget if you want to get a chance to win a print from any image taken in the month of January, you have to share my images as often as possible. You can head over to my Facebook page at:

At lunch today I was in Oakville and I dropped by Bronte Harbour. This time the Snowy Owl was there, although a wee bit of a distance away. According to 2 other photographers, she had caught a gull and was having lunch.

This afternoon I headed out to the east side of Hamilton. Yesterday we had found a Snowy Owl but she was quite a distance away. When I arrived in the area she was sitting on a shed about 50 feet from the road. I know I have been taking quite a few images of Snowy Owls lately, but they are such beautiful birds, I can’t help it! 🙂

This morning I took my wife to St. Catharines as she had been wanting to see a Snowy Owl in person rather than always in pictures. I only found one this time around and she was quite a ways out in a field. But as always she was beautiful! 

Have a great weekend everyone!  🙂

This morning I headed back to St. Catharines in hopes of seeing one or more of the Snowy Owls. I went to the area where they more often than not hang out, but there were none around. I drove along a couple of side roads and came across this beautiful lady sitting on a fence post about 15 meters from me. She was giving me “the look”.

I arrived home early this morning so I did not have an opportunity to post an image from yesterday. I drove down to St. Catharines yesterday morning and this beautiful lady was sitting up on a hydro pole. She was surveying her territory. There was another female Snowy Owl I think way out in a field but she was a long way away.

I went to Bronte Creek Marina in Oakville early this afternoon. I had heard there was a Snowy Owl visiting the area. Apparently there are several of them this year in and around southern Ontario. He or she ( I believe it is a “she”) was there out on the rock wall. She was a long way away but I did manage to get a couple of shots of her. She was awake and keeping an eye on things but did not leave the area.
