Common Loon. Photographed on Eagle Lake, Parham, Ontario, Canada. Canon EOS 7D, 400mm f5.6L USM, 1/500s f/5.6, iso500, handheld.



Spending time in the outdoors has always been a passion of mine. Most of my subject matter is avian but I will readily spend hours photographing almost anything else in the natural world. Currently I live near a small town, Rockland, just east of Ottawa. I work in Ottawa and so most of my photography is done in eastern Ontario. Thank you for dropping by and enjoy.

    Wow! Another great shot. Talk about an exposure nightmare! You nailed it.

  • Thanks, Paul. Black and white is every photographers nightmare, not to mention the poor lighting on this day. Luckily I salvaged a few ;)
