My bobolink photo has been featured in the June 2013 issue of Canadian Wildlife. Check it out!
From time to time I’ve come across intriguing “skyscapes”, often in the form of cloud formations or other interesting patterns. A long focal length helps to compress details and focuses on a smaller area of detail in the sky, allowing for more drama in the image than a wide angle photo. I find that in winter there are more opportunities for this, often due to low, scudding clouds, frequently with the sun partially visible from behind.
This particular photo was taken at night as a very large full moon began to rise, with an 800mm lens.
Due to having purchased a 1D IV, I am selling my III. I’m amazed at how fast this body depreciated; it’s certainly your best bang for the dollar right now in my opinion.
I’ve owned it for 2 years, purchased it new, and put 55k shutter actuations on it (shutter lifetime is 300k). I can’t say I’ve ever had any issues with the focus. It has had all the Canon repairs done, and the firmware is the latest available. Comes with all accessories and box.
I’m looking for a Canadian sale at this point. The camera is available for pickup in the GTA, or shipping at your expense. The asking price is $2300 SOLD.
To make it easier to view all my bird species in a listing, I have created a bird listing page with species listed taxonomically. There are a number of species that still need to be added. It can be found here.
