I’ve been shooting close to home for the past couple of weeks. Last week, I was at the National Audubon Society Sabal Palm Sanctuary looking for a rare masked duck…saw it but couldn’t get close. This week, I have photographed a pair of altamira orioles going to and from their nest. Some of those shots were ok, but the background was busy. We raised our scaffold to eye-level, so I expect the next shoot to be very productive.
I am ordering a few cold-weather apparel items for this fall’s Bosque del Apache Photo Tour. Let me know if you would like to go. Bosque is a fabulous photo location in November-December.
Earlier today, I tried ordering a Canon Flash Booster and discovered it is another of the items we can’t get right now because supplies were interrupted by the tsunami. My old flash booster with the 2 lb. battery gave up the ghost. It was not a Canon brand item and was way too bulky to suit me. I hear great things about the Canon booster which just requires 8 AA batteries.
Here are a couple of shots from the south Texas area. Click in the upper right portion of the photos to enlarge them and to get a sharper, brighter image.
