First Let Me say I enjoyed the Outing the Company was Great and the timing weather wise was spotton as always Thank You and as well Ronen picked the theme correctly as the Forest was set out in it's best Autumn Colour ans Being the first time really I have Ventured into these woods I was impressed They are Awesome!
Oh and the subject came up about a particular leaf and I said it was Sandalwood or something with weood in it and the something is called Basswood!!!
Hell to all this Friday the last day of August and a warm one it goes out on, I collected these images last weekend to and from and at a Friends place a bit west of Burkes Falls last weekend, note the interesting rock it looks like petrified trees it is quite a thing to see it is at the foot of what was a major Beaver dam that let loose some time ago which is partly why it is visible at this time anyway Hope You enjoy these!!!
Cheers and Hope All Have a safe and a nice Labour Day Long Weekend
A Collection of Images taken on June 5th 2012 made possible first By the fact that this wonderful place is there and second the new lens, as it played a part ( as well as the 2x extender ) in this becoming possible and all images are from the 40D, I was there today as well with this arrangement on the 7D but as of this writing have not had opportunity to review them I know I have a few nice images of A Heron in in flight Close up but that is not for here at this time.
This day saw the small pond totaly covered with the Duckweed the waterfowl were eating lots of it, There seen to be a lot of Blue Herons as well there are a varying number of Trumpeter Swans and the only reason there are any at all is Follow this http://www.swansociety.org/interior-and-atlantic-populations.html
This Town has a few Jems and the Swans as it has become apparent are one of them and the McKenzie Marsh, the Case Woodlot. Sheppard's Bush to name a few.
I Hope You Enjoy a small tour of the Marsh.
