Eagle Training

During the later part of January we were treated to a display of flight training by a large group of bald eagles. They stayed around our property for about a couple of weeks, (as Hay bay slowly froze over). Most of the pictures were taken at dusk one evening, when a group of 18-20 eagles flew overhead of our home. I took most of this pictures through my living room window. The pictures are grainy due to the fact that I had to push the ISO in the camera. They have to been Photoshoped other that tonal corrections. It really was an amazing display.

More Fall Outings

Now that my Czech Republic photos are finally posted, I can get back to photos I have taken this fall and winter during my PEC photo club excursions. These photos are from the local “Lantern Festival” as well as the “Super Moon”. Our home was ideally situated for the moon shots so we had members come over to take pictures from our property. Both of these events ran this past fall. The close up shot of the moon was taken using a club members 200-500mm zoom lens, (thanks Dave).

My First Pictures as a member of Prince Edward Photography Club

I have recently started to attend outings run by the Prince Edward County Photography Club.  Members meet every month with additional photography outings.  Each month there is a “challenge” on a variety of topics.  This first group of shots includes “abandonment” and “power”.  Additional photos in this collection include an outing to a local car show and a visit to the Picton waterfront.  Many thanks to Ken Liddon who runs the club.  He puts together some amazing slideshows using the members photos.

Retirement Begins! – the summer of 2016

It has been a month since we have had decent internet service at our new place in Picton.  As a result this post will be more of a collection of stuff we have done over the Summer having now permanently moved to the “county”.

It is official, Audrey and I are now retired, are have jumped into our new phase of life head first.  It has been a very hot summer with little to no rain.  In fact we had a stretch of  7 weeks without any rain. As a result, the trees on our property have been suffering.  Audrey and I have spent The summer working on the new place, (mainly indoors) interspersed with visits from family and friends.  In addition, we have spent time at our local beach, (sandbanks) and enjoyed live performances at both the local jazz and rock festivals.

 

The gallery collection includes photos of the new kitchen, improvements in the steps to the waterfront and a variety of summer activities.

I have joined the local photography club and hope to post addition images from this activity.
