It was a thrill to see some Common Loon chicks on a nearby lake. The male's yodelling is always a joy to listen to on calm summer nights.
After years of hesitation, Branded Visuals now has a page on Facebook. It's a little late to the party so there will be some catching up to do. If anyone has some pointers along the way, it will be greatly appreciated. Click HERE to check it out.
I talk about this all the time but Candy's photo of the Ptarmigan again illustrates her super-human spotting skills. White on white is probably one of the most difficult combinations. Movement is what gave away the location of this male bird against the camouflaged backdrop of snow. And yes... I had to google the spelling of camouflage.
I arrived back from Churchill on Wednesday morning with fond memories of great people, delicious food and thankfully countless opportunities to photograph Polar Bears on the edge of Hudson Bay as they await the freeze of the sea ice. North winds delivered the chilling cold that was promised but the clothing layers and hand-warmers fought it off beautifully. See the full collection of images HERE as they are gradually added to the gallery.
Having had a few mornings already where we've woken up to snow, I'm beginning to make mental notes of where winter will invite me this season. I dusted off this image of Maligne Lake in Jasper as incentive to get out and do more landscapes.
Candy and I finally braved the short bike ride and wonderful hike up the Burstall Pass trail in Kananaskis. Larch were just turning yellow and the views of the lake were spectacular.
Went to Waterton yesterday and enjoyed a great time with the most spectacular black bear family ever. When they decided to wade into the waters as a group, the shutter on my camera worked overtime to take it all in.
Hearing Candy yell "Come over here!" from the window in the kitchen always nets something rewarding. Evening Grosbeaks had invaded our yard and were adding brilliant yellows to the view.
