Flooded Sunset

 With all the rain we have been getting I decide to go check out the lake last night and see if there was anything interesting to take photos of. Lots of flood water but that was about it. I did stick around for the sunset though. It turned out pretty good. Hope you enjoy.


As usual I haven't had time to take any new photos. Well, I take that back. This past weekend I had some time but I literally took four photos and then I sprained my wrist and couldn't lift my camera after that.

I guess it was meant to be that you get more photos of turtles from Maui!

More Young Eagles in flight

Today's pictures and the two previous Young Eagles in flight pictures from a couple of days ago were all shot handheld using the Sigma 120-400mm lens at various focal lengths with the aperture at f8.

Lupine and Scotch Broom

On Vancouver Island Lupine and Scotch Broom both come into bloom about the same time each year and are often found together along roadsides and open tracts of land.

Got Dramamine?

Things around here have been very hectic the last couple of weeks and it appears that they will stay that way for the next several weeks. Because of that I haven't been able to get out and take any photos.

It has made me think of Hawai'i a lot, it doesn't take much you know, but I really do need a vacation and Maui always comes to mind when I think about a vacation. With that said, I thought a little underwater video would give you something to look at, or make you sea sick. One of these days I will learn to put music with my videos, providing I'm smart enough to figure out how.

This was shot in the waters off Olowalu Beach on Maui with the GoPro Hero 4 as I was swimming through the large coral heads about 200 yards off shore.

Here kitty kitty...

Over the years we've seen Bears, Deer, Otters, Salmon, Owls, Eagles and numerous other types of birds in out yard... Then today for the first time we had a Cougar come to visit!  Fortunately my camera was close by and I managed to get a few good shots before it disappeared into the woods.

Just a nice view...

The only thing missing from this picture is a nice little beach fire, hot dogs and marsh mallows!

Haven't have time to work on those pictures from the trip with Ron, so I'm posting these shots from few years ago to fill in my slots on this Blog.

Eyes Like A Hawk

Not my eyes of course. I'm old and can't see anything unless it's more than two feet away from me!
