It has almost been a year since my last post... Wow! Well, since then, I have retired from my day job and I'm now able to enjoy photography more. I also find myself posting on FB more.

This is a photo I shared on that platform. I drove to Klamath Falls last weekend with +Dawn Hensler to photograph birds.  Although this one obviously isn't of our chosen subject, it was one of my favorites. I used a filter from Flaming Pear called "Twist" for my interpretation.

I seem to have been bitten by the IR bug  You know, Infrared.  I decided to get my feet wet last weekend and shot a few exposures at a nearby winery, not far from my house.  Out of the 7-8 exposures, only one or two were worth exploring further than the reddish captures I loaded into LR.  This one was reasonably sharp so I went onto You tube to look at tutorials. (I think I have more research to do!)

I am using a Hoya 72 IR filter on my Canon 24-105 lens (mounted on my 5dm3).  Crazy stuff and no doubt I have a long way to go, but it is something I want to check out this year. I'm now looking for a reasonable camera to convert.  Thinking most recently of a Canon Powershot g16, but could be easily swayed another direction.  Hints or tips, send my way, please!

I ran across a night photo recently showing frozen bubbles in Vermillion lake near Banff, BC Canada. It was in familiar territory as I had just been there in October, last year.  The photography work turned out to be that of +Paul Zizka . I later saw this site of his portfolio pictures and was impressed, as I think the human element he depicts in his work draws me in.  I hope you enjoy his site as much as I do!

Dare I post another shot from the Banff area? (Twist my arm!) This was one of my favorite shots and was taken east off Hwy 11, technically outside Banff Park and the Icefields Parkway. This shot shows the Cline River running into Abraham Lake.  I didn't realize it until talking to our Lodge owner but the Canadian Government owns all this land and just grants the owners use of the land as stewards, basically.

A quick shot last night of the "Moonbow". I never even knew it was happening without a phone call from a friend alerting me to get outside.  I used a trusty wide angle as I didn't think anything longer would capture the moon and the ring in the same shot.  I didn't see the rainbow effect until I started processing... I think it may be Jupiter on the left, but don't quote me!

Cabin Fever. Need to get outta here.  This fog and inversion in the Rogue Valley is getting old.  Took off to Klamath Falls to find some migrating birds yesterday as weather was dry and relatively warm for January.

Found a few birds, but they were hard to get to and my lens was too short for what I could see going on in the distance. (sigh...) So, I concentrated on closer views.  Found this nice reflective tree in the water and had fun with it post-processing last night through Silver Effects Pro and Fractalius (Similar to the new Topaz Glow, but older).  I'm including 3 versions of the "X" tree here.

BTW, my husband leaned out of the car and got the best hawk shot of the day.  With my camera.  (sigh, again...!) It was still a great day. At least I could add an "X" to my digital alphabet collection!

Ohmygosh, my knees were killing me as I walked down this steep hill in the Columbia River Gorge workshop with +David Cobb and +Zack Schnepf from +Photo Cascadia .  I had to stop to rest.  As I did, my mind wandered from the pain in my knees to the dramatic lighting happening in the gorge.  I thought we'd be lucky to get back to the comfort of our hotel before the sky opened up on us.  There were enough people up the hill still to travel down, so I dug out my camera and took a few shots.  I think my short rest was well spent...!

So, I think we need to get a bumper sticker that says "Shoot like Lars". I am including the video below , which is amazing on a lot of different levels. There is the historical angle ( Genghis Khan and the Apache Indians) as well as modern photography. It is worth a watch, even if you are not interested in photography. ( so, could you capture his shots with your camera skills? I doubt I could...)
