Venturing Into the Warm Golden Light
Another of my many Snowy Owl photos from my files. Good thing I have them, because I stopped bird photography around six years ago due to pain and mobility issues with my knees.
I, of course, did not balance my colours to white with this photo, to preserve the warm light rendering. The golden-coloured vegetation also adds to the warmth of the photo.
The Big Embrace
Here is another from my files from the year 2014. The wingspan of these birds is incredible.
Don't You Dare Follow Me
Another one from my files unpublished, circa 2014.
I have a couple of other "looking over my shoulder while in flight" photos of this type on my site, but they are always a pleasure to look at.
Male Snowy Surprise
Again from my files of several years ago.
The older adult male Snowy Owls tend to turn white in colour, and are a minority in my region.
New Years 2021-2022 - Sweetie Snowy Curiosity
Another of my many Snowy Owl photos from my files from several years ago.
Happy New Years.
A Blast From the Past
It's been about six years since I stopped my bird photography due to bad knees. Here is a Snowy Owl from my files taken about that time with my Canon 5D Mark III.
Delicate Repose on Dom's Rock
Another Snowy photo from my files of several years ago.
Taken with my Canon 5D Mark III handheld with the fantastic 500L f4 lens.
It appears that the Snowy Owl had a strand of dried vegetation caught in her feathers.
The afternoon light was beginning to turn the scene warm, but for this one, I decided to cool it off a bit. It was not late enough for a real golden light.
If I took the photo late in the afternoon with a real golden glow, I would have left it that way.
As I've mentioned before, I ceased bird photography at that time because it was too difficult and painful due to multiple knee surgeries, and of course, age :-)
This pile of rocks bears the name Dom's Rock as a callout to my good friend Dominic (Dom) who first spotted the owl using it as a perch at the time.
Apart from bird photography, Dom is also an avid astronomy photographer.
A Donald Trump Farewell, Snowy-Style
An old file photo for the occasion.
Do You Mind If I Zoom Through?
Another from my unpublished files, circa 2015.
V For Victory - Snowy Owl
Another Snowy Owl from my files. Taken in 2015, just before I stopped my bird photography due to my bum knees.
Fence-Hopping Juvenile Snowy Owl
From my files in the final year of my bird photography days five or so years ago.
Holiday Northern Hawk-Owl
This photo taken on Christmas in 2016. A small branch cloned out just below and to the rear of the bird.
Alert Tree Hugger
Once again, even though I had to give up my bird photo outings several years ago, I still have lots of photos on file to add to my site.
This young Cooper Hawk is checking out for mom or dad for a possible yummy meal delivery.
Only the Shadow Knows
I haven't been out doing bird photography for several years now due to my knee-related mobility problems. But, I do have many Snowy Owl photos that I have on file.
Here is one with a shadow following the bird.
