    Roger that, lol! That's also how I spotted an eagle on the river, all I had to do was look to the tallest tree above, whilst trying not slip on the calling cards on the rocks ...:)

    Guy....would you please send me a calendar with your favorite photos... ;)
    or just keep posting here, :) I like your work, and appreciate your passion for the outdoors and the beauty that surrounds us, if you just take the time to be still, and look and listen... and you do....and you know when to click the cam, have exposure dialed in....

    Back in the film days, it was hit or miss, Nikon was my go to .....Shucks, I'm just jealous, what with the 6D thingy :p (y)

    Black Oystercatchers on the shores of the Pacific Ocean. Out of all the shorebirds I can think
    of these little guys don't spook very easily and allow humans to get relatively close before they vamoose.

    Trumpeter Swans are back in the valley on their way south....

    They are very cautious around humans for very good reason and because of that are difficult to
    get close to. Normally they will land in the middle of a large field out of camera range. I got lucky today.

    When I was 13 my best buddy, a tag-along cousin and myself were dropped off on the side of a gravel logging road at the Coquihalla River ( pronounced Coke-A-Halla ) upriver from the Othello Tunnels about 5 miles outside of Hope, B.C. by our fathers.

    We were there for at least 5 days. Fished for trout, explored the tunnels before the area was turned into a tourist area and crossed our fingers that we wouldn't be visited by bears or cougars. Quite an adventure for 2 1/2 just turned teenagers.

    The picture of the river that I'm posting may or may not be the exact area. Things have changed in 51 years and it's not as recognizable as I thought it would be. When we were there the water was just below the road level and very much white waterish. At least 10 feet deep. We floated down the river many times until my weenie cousin almost lost his life. Little did we know there was a waterfall around the last bend. I know now it was a stupid thing to do but it sure was fun then. In any event we survived the week and I remember the experience well. It makes me wonder about all the kids today that are afraid to go to the store by themselves. lol

    Going there let me put my new 6D walk-around landscape kinda camera to work today. I'm starting to like it a lot.

    My real passion as far as photography is concerned is aircraft in flight. Unfortunately at this
    time of the year the best place to hang out is at one of the airports in the area and that's
    exactly what I did last Sunday.

    These are just a few of the shots I cracked off at the Vancouver Int'l Airport and the float base right alongside of it.

    To make like interesting I bolted my big lens to my 6D just to see how it would handle the lousy low light because of the heavy overcast conditions. I only had to crank up the ISO to 1000 whicg impressed me to no end. That's an amazing body.

    1998 Cessna 525
    I love business jets.........

    AND
    That's amazing you know the subtle differences in aircraft seen from afar, wouldn't have known the sea planes if not for the different numbers on the tail, but I sure remember De Havilland from my model building days!
    :cool:

    Aviation has always been my passion. I can recall my dad taking me to the airport in Winnipeg to watch aircraft come and go. I recall seeing the Super Constellations and I was always wowed by them until I saw my first jet airliner in about 1958 or '59ish. That blew my doors off. I still look up today every time I hear an aircraft go over. Can't help it.

    That said, I don't always know all the subtle differences. I use quite a few different sites to help me.

    There's a link to my Flickr page below every post. I've got lots of aircraft shots there if you want to waste some time.

    They sure are. Those without the turbo-shaft engine are still running their radial engines. I love the sound of those beasts.

    It's amazing to know how old they are and compare it to the average age of vehicles on the road. That's something
    to think about isn't it.

    Very rare to see a Gryfalcon in our area but that's what I saw this morning. Quite far away unfortunately.
