Quite a number of years ago a small herd of Roosevelt Elk was transplanted to Vancouver Island. Over the years their numbers increased and original herd split into a number of herds. A couple of days ago I finally had the opportunity to photograph some of these Elk.
I took a number of pictures hand held with the Sigma 120-400, it was near dusk but the Sigma was up to the task and did a great job in the low light! Here are two of the better captures.
As I sit here at my computer staring out the window watching it snow I decided something warm would be in order. So I fixed a cup of coffee with some Irish cream and started looking through my Maui sunset photos.
As soon as the rain started and the temperatures cooled off the mushrooms came out. I have no idea the names of any of these or whether they are edible or not, but I do know is that there are mushrooms of many different sizes, shapes and colors that grow here on Vancouver Island!
I took this picture a couple of weeks ago before our first frost. Since then the temperature here has gotten down as low as -5° C. or 23° F. and most of the more delicate plants are done until next spring.
Northerly outflow winds over here on the West Coast of Canada has given us cold temperatures, clear skies and blustery winds, oh and some nice photo opportunities as well! These are both taken with the Sigma 120-400 at 400mm and cropped to about 30% of the original.
