Wandering Doe – Photo of the Week

Sorry folks! I’ve been absent for a while. Tons going on and then away from home for work for a week. Busy times! But I’m back and have posted another Photo of the Week. This time, it’s an image taken with my new Nikon D7100. Am very happy with the camera so far. It’s early days, but so far, I like it. I look forward to lots more photography to really put the camera through its paces. And hopefully, there will be more opportunities to photograph the beautiful doe, the subject of this week’s Photo of the Week from 44th Parallel Photography.

Swimming Through Salad – Photo of the Week

This week’s Photo of the Week has an odd but fitting title. I’m going to let you tune into my Photo of the Week webpage to read about it, rather than telling you what it’s about. Note that no salad dressing was used in the making of this photo. šŸ˜‰

Summertime – Photo of the Week

There’s been no end to the busyness this summer and so yet again, I’m behind in my postings. But finally, here is another Photo of the Week. This one is inspired by our local landscape and the beautiful scenery I see nearly daily on my drive to work.

On Display – Photo of the Week

Finally a chance to post some images from my bird photography outing a few weekends ago. We came across this really cooperative and response male Red-winged Blackbird. He had a female on a nest nearby and came to let us know. We were at the side of the road at a marsh and he clearly wanted to make sure we got the message. It was a windy day, but luckily he was down low, in the cattails, which made it far easier to focus on him.

Algonquin Moose – Photo of the Week

I’m just back from Algonquin Provincial Park. I made a really brief trip up there (30 hour round trip) to photograph moose. Late spring and mid fall are the best times to see them in the park. I was disappointed. In less that 24 hours I saw 11 moose and I photographed 5 of them. Some are wary and won’t stay around long enough to get a good photo. But others are very tolerant and as long as you keep your distance and respect their space, they will happily graze while you snap away. I can’t wait to get back up to Algonquin for more wildlife photography. I’ll definitely be back in the fall for more moose photography.

Black-throated Green Warbler – Photo of the Week

This weekend I finally got out for some bird photography – way behind schedule, but life’s been a bit crazy lately and well, as they say, better late than never.

I ended up photographing one of my favourite birds – a Black-throated Green Warbler. This little guy has set up shop on the same territory for 2 years. It’s nice to have him back.

An Artistic Look At Forest Flowers – Photo of the Week

This week’s Photo of the Week puts an artistic spin on shooting forest wildflowers. I just love wildflowers and can spend hours out with my camera, laying on my belly, fending off mosquitoes, while I find interesting and creative new ways to bring forest wildflowers to live in pixels.

This weekend I photographed wild Lily of the Valley. It’s a tiny plant, only a few inches high. But it is just as beautiful if not more beautiful than its cultivated cousin.
