A favourite of mine because it was really my first long exposure moving water attempt.
A fav because it's another great example of the importance of serendipity. I was in the hide waiting for the Kingfisher while hand-holding the big lens shooting Wood Ducks in the sun, and this guy popped out of nowhere. A rare visitor, I was totally unprepared and had to adjust the manual exposure on the fly - very exhilarating.
A favourite because this was part of a great afternoon as a guest of a wonderful wildlife photographer. I learned a lot, mostly that getting great pictures is the result of a lot of hard work.
Thanks Steve Rose.
This is a favorite because it illustrates the "luck factor" to a tee. I was tracking another Wood Duck and he swam right under this pair.
This is a fav because I have been trying for years to catch the Snowy Owl migration - finally!!! This shot also piqued my interest in photography again, after a few years of inactivity.
The 1D3 only has single point auto-focus @ f/8, so I was very pleased to see some shots in the sequence that were in focus
Note: No baiting was used in this session. I waited for a good part of an hour lying in a snowbank hoping this guy would do something interesting - never in my wildest dreams did I think he would fly right at me for a vole lying under the snow. My buffer filled before he got there but a fellow photographer got him from the side with his 1DX
This is a fav because it's on our property, and I've been trying for a while to get this guy in flight - this is my first success.
A fav - because at barely one and a half years old, you can already tell who's the boss!
A favourite because this captures the beauty of our pond in late summer, and is hanging in our living room.
A personal favourite because Gracie's eyes are sparkling with love...
And, this is one of my first attempts with some new b/w workflows.
a favourite because Charlie is getting all growd up way too fast
a favourite because so much luck was involved in this photo, and amf and Charlie were waiting patiently in the truck for me
a favourite because Charlie was as bright as the summer day
a favourite because it was th first time with a real telephoto - it was a great day spent with John wildpix - he was kind enough to lend me a 400mm lens (or two) and show me some of his secret owl haunts... I'm hooked!
a favourite because it was the first time with two strobes (flashes) and Charlie was in exceptional form right after his bath
a favourite because it captures fall in so many ways
