    these two photos were taken near Hopewell Rocks on the Bay of Fundy. I was scooting on my chair and saw the light illuminating this small pine tree.

      Great example of simplicity through DOF. Really like how the little plant is lit. Background is really good as well. Foreground is a bit distracting.

      • Henri says:

        Took the liberty to play with Photoshop Beta to remove and replace the foreground. Then cropped to put the plant roughly in the !/3 intersection.

    Same place same time on the way back to the parking lot I spotted a batch of mushrooms and got close with the macro setting on the Olympus.

    Highly recommend a visit to the new Polar Bear enclosure to visit Baffin and Siku which are our new polar bears. I was there on Dec 2 and it was fabulous. They have an amazing space to wander and play in. This picture was taken with my phone.

  5. Henri says:

    Really like this diagonal composition and the colour scheme.

  6. Karen McDaniel says:

    The two polar bears have a two acre enclosure for roaming. Here is one of them outside of the pool. Shot with my Nikon: 400 FL, F6.5, S 1/500, ISO 1000 Auto WB, CW Metering.

    Not a good photo (technically) but I like it – I think is a kind of jay

    polar bears at the zoo ISO 1250 310mm f5.6 1/4000, they were very active but it was difficult to shoot through the wires

    Our Lake Louise getaway saw us photograph at the Lake (a winter snow storm day made it possible to drive to the parking lot). Also at Emerald Lake, the Natural Bridge and Morant’s Curve. With only room for two images from these iconic spots I opted for an 4pm image of a CP unit train rounding the bend at the Curve. Moody, low clouds and mist and then all of a sudden The Train rounding the bend —- Wow!

  11. Joe Horler says:

    Colour as the sun was setting. Watching the unit train pass by, all of a sudden everything was red containers.

    My attempt at the artistic side of photography – Double Exposure. It was a challenge to figure out which is first the photo and which is second photo. This is with Macro lens, F5.6, 1/8 sec Auto ISO 1250.

    Using depth of field to isolate the hockey player. I was concerned that fixing the aperture at f/4.0 that the shutter speed would be too slow to freeze the action.

    Couldn’t resist a shot of this forest bride at Lake Enid holding her bouquet of white flowers. Also added a vignette to put her in the spotlight. Taken with iPhone, ISO 25, f/2.2, 1/663.

  15. Ron says:

    Overturned tree root ball at Lake Enid. Taken with iPhone, ISO 25, f/2.2, 1/60, with vignette.

    Kruger Park, South Africa. One of my favourite African birds, a lilac-breasted roller, so called because it rolls in the air when catching insects. Far enough away that I didn’t see it had a beetle in its beak until I downloaded my photos to my iPad that evening.

  17. Frankie says:

    Blyde Canyon, South Africa. Basically just a pretty picture taken from a rock near the edge. The third largest canyon in the world after the Grand Canyon.
    ISO 1600, 40 mm, f/6.3, 1/2500 sec. Taken with my fixed lens Ricoh pocket camera.

    • Frankie says:

      Maybe the 10th largest now that I look it up. It’s the greenest one though! Not the first time a guide was misinformed.
