Picture of the Day – “Howl at the Moon” – Feb. 18, 2017

Doing something a bit different again. I have a small ornament that is a block of plastic with a sculpture carved out of the inside. It is made with intersecting lasers melting parts of the plastic to make the sculpture. It has a base with three coloured LEDs that randomly light up. I thought I would take a few pictures and see what I could get.

Taken with Canon 70D, Canon 100mm L Macro lens, 1/8 sec, f/11 and ISO 800

 

Picture of the Day – “A Pheasant Day” – Feb 17, 2017

Today on our wanderings, we didn’t see a whole lot, as all the snow we’ve had this week has impacted some travel. However, we did see this guy who was wandering around the snow and eventually went in under the tree 🙂 Even though these are quite common, I have to admit they are very beautiful (if I can say that word with a “boy” pheasant….lol).

Canon 5D Mk lV & Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM + Canon 1.4x lll teleconverter –  @560mm, 1/2500, f8, ISO 2500, +3/4 exposure compensation.

Feel free to share 🙂

Such a Beautiful Bird

Sorry for no Picture of the Day, yesterday. Between keeping my doorway cleared, so that I could get out and cleaning up the huge mountains of snow, I didn’t really have the energy to post something. To make up for it though, I thought I would share these pictures of a beautiful Bald Eagle we saw on Wednesday, before the snow started. This is the same one Bev posted as her Picture of the Day. These were taken near Saint-Antoine, NB.

Taken with Canon 7D Mark II, Sigma 150-600mm @ 600mm, 1/(600-800)sec, f/(8-11) and Auto ISO (200-1000)
