Probably the last of the Snow Geese for this year, the flock was much smaller today, probably only about 30,000 compared to the aprox 100,000 a few weeks ago.

Aww. Hopefully they're heading toward my neck of the woods. There's a lot of them that winter around here. But I suspect they don't come from this far east.

A few more shots from PEI, it's a beautiful little province. A few landscapes this time. The seascape is along the east coast in PEI National Park and the tree is in the Red Point Provincial Park.

A few shots from a recent studio workshop. As usual, only minimal post processing, mostly cropping and colour adjustments.

Story
Tagline
part time stay@home dad / part time IT support guru / amateur photographer/astronomer
Introduction
I'm a part time stay @ home dad and work part time in IT support. I'm into photography, astronomy and geocaching and hiking. I completed my 365 Photo-A-Day challenge, overall I think it was a success. I know that I learned a lot and definitely learned the limits of what my camera can't and can't do.
I decided to take a break from the 365 and focus more on learning new techniques and polishing what I know without the pressure of having to take a shot every day.
