Re: RBTree's awsome pics

Here's a way too long slide show from a trip to Oregon last weekend. waterfowl, lichen covered Oregon white oaks, and a waterfall. I shot 500 images in a coupla hours each day...

I was in Eugene for the excellent Steve Sillet/Robert Van Pelt lecture...they're old growth canopy researchers, for those of you who don't know of them......

Enjoy:

Re: RBTree's awsome pics

I've been shooting lots of wildlife lately. Just check my flickr site.

Here's one of the appx 500 shots from yesterday:



This was shot about 100 yards away from an 80 nest heron rookery, with a Canon 7D, equipped with a 300 f/2.8 and 2x teleconverter, so effective focal length is 960mm....

Fall in the Pacific North "Wet"

Well, we have had a coupla rainy days. But the trees in their fall plumage are spectacular. Here's a slide show of images here and there, close up, and not so close, from the last few weeks.

Colorful sumac too!

And freshies on Three Fingers Mt, 35 or so miles east of Everett, a city north of Seattle. 6900 foot peak, with snow down to ~3500.

We pruned this superb copper beech about 7 years ago. Time for more! It's fast approaching 5 feet dbh!

Re: RBTree's awsome pics

I climbed a pine, then pulled up a pack loaded with water, two camera, and my big 6 pound 300 m lens, in order to look down at the ospreys, that I've been following since April 18, when I started this set with a bang...well, birds don't actualy copulate as do mammals..but they appeared to be having fun....

the latest shots in the show are from yesterday's climb...Ballard Ospreys - a set on Flickr

Dad bringing dinner!


Coming back in for a visit.
