      A beautiful series of images Henri. I liked the mountains being added as it created a story for the beautiful lights.

    Semipalmated Plover in Fish Creek Park.
    1/4000 s, f7.1, ISO 800
    Shot at 500 mm using a 100-500mm lens. Depth of field calculation shows that at the distance the bird was, (~20m) the area in focus would be 19.67m to 20.34m, a total of 0.67m. You can see that in the rocks in the foreground.
    Edited in LR, Sharpened in Topaz Photo AI.

    Back in 2015 in Belize in a small town in the jungle. One of my first wildlife shots, a 4′ long iguana. Not too hard since he was just sitting there, but I got lucky with the natural framing. Canon PowerShot S100. This was the digital point and shoot my photographer friends and I used for a few years while transitioning from film and waiting for the DSLR prices to come down. I hated that thing. It had to “wake up” and I missed so many shots.
    ISO 400, 68 mm, f/18, 1/250

  11. Dwight says:

    not a frame but I loved the texture of this old park bench I found in the middle of 6 evergreens.

  12. Dwight says:

    5 years ago we rented an RV to see if it would be a way of travel for us. I rented a spot at Dinosaur Provincial Park. This was from our spot as the sun sets cottonwoods framing a distant butte.

    As I saidi in the Challenge, we travelled to Cannes to see our son and his family. Jet lagged we wee eup before 6am on May 5th and went with tripods in hand to the rooftop of our hotel overlooking Cannes Bay. What a reward to watch the sunrise sweep across the bay.

    The second image some 20 minutes later captued the far off storm raining on the far coast and a beautiful rainbow.

  17. Debbie McCluskey says:

    These are International Marine signal flags framed through the window at Lobster Core Lighthouse, at Gros Morne National park in NFLD. Each flag has a meaning for example, the yellow with the black circle means “I am directing my course to port.” The flags are changed each day and there was a chart that we had to use to figure out what the flags meant. This was taken at F9, exp -7, ISO 100, 1/640 speed.
