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.
This season of photo opportunies has been pretty well nixed. Everything cancelled. Spring in the country can provide lots of photography but sometimes Mother Nature is slow in providing them. Around where I live we’ve had a lot of wind and it’s been cold. The crocuses finally covered the hills, now the lilacs are blooming here. My trail camera managed to pull up some of the slack and recorded shots I never would have been able to capture. However, the animals have been slow in returning also.
I hope you enjoy theses shots of two young bucks, my assistant the trail camera was able to catch. Hopefully we see more of them.
