Yellow Warbler

June 30, 2011

This little guy was circling us for a good twenty minutes at Ship Cove, on the way back from St. Mary’s. It must have been something to see, no less than six of us lined off on the side of the road with our longest lenses, all trying to shoot this little bird (and it’s friend).

He didn’t stay in one spot for very long, so I captures a number of frames with no bird as well. I did also manage to catch one slightly blurred one just as he took off.

Gannet Landing

This will be the first of several photos from the Camera 35 trip to St. Mary’s. We had a good time, and it’s going to take some time to get everything processed to my satisfaction.

Callanish Standing Stones

June 21, 2011

I saw a B&W photo of these stones over on 500px.com the other day and it occurred to me that while I was never really happy with how my photos there turned out, I never tried them in B&W. The colour version always seemed uninteresting, but with some dodging & burning the monochrome has a lot more impact.

Perhaps I need a note next to my monitor that says: “Did you remember to try that in B&W?”

Freshwater Bay

June 5, 2011

Jen, Chris, and myself took a hike down to Freshwater Bay yesterday afternoon. It ended up being a really nice day; which, unfortunately, meant the light wasn’t great for photos. But we made the best of it and I managed to get a couple of shots worth processing.
