This week was a week of celebration. July 1st for my Canadian friends and July 4th for my American friends. Hope all had a good time. I spent July 1st home with my family. The only fireworks was the discussion on what to have for supper! We had warm/hot weather and thunderstorms this week. The shots of the clouds are straight out of the camera. No magic editing. The clouds looked fierce but we only had minimum wind and 3/10th of rain. My assistant the trail camera caught a whitetail doe and her fawn and two of the bucks that spend time in our area. The Boy and I went on a road trip one day. Saw some cattle and a moose on a hill that someone had built . Looks pretty realistic. One evening when we were out and about, there were turkey vultures flying over head. That does give a person a funny feeling! On one of our hot days The Boy and I spent time in Studio 13 experimenting with different props and backgrounds. I had a good time, felt good getting the creative parts of the brain working. The Boy had a good nap!
All in all it was a good week. Hope to see you next week.
- The Boy and I usually go for walks in the morning, if it is nice out. This particular morning I really didn’t feel like going, knew I was just being lazy, so garbed the camera and off we went. We were just meandering in the pasture. Surroundings were pretty quiet. I stopped to take some shots of a thorn bush, the boy was off exploring. Something caught my eye and I looked over into the field and saw something moving. Looked again and it was a moose. Called the Boy over and leased him and moved a bit closer and started taking photos. Took awhile for the Boy to see the moose and then I was holding him while taking shots. The moose stopped, saw us and didn’t seem to be upset. Continued on his way up the hill towards the yard site which is the other side of the poplars in the photos. He stopped on the hill and must have seen the horses as he stood for awhile. As soon as they saw him he turned and ran back towards us. He saw us and the Boy saw him and he turned away from us. Turned out to be a good day for a while with the Boy and a camera. Enjoy.
