I thought this was a very appropriate photo to start off the year – metaphorically “taking off” into the sunrise of 2014. One photo from my recent trip to NM/AZ.
What a year it’s been. From winter raptors and Algonquin Park photography early this year, to the shorebirds and songbirds of spring and summer, it’s been an extremely productive year for photography. I managed to add 68 birds to my life list, which now stands at about 210 species. Yesterday I finished off the year by adding the much sought-after boreal owl to my list. Next year should yield many more birds, particularly with a trip to Florida in February, and more targeted shooting for specific species in the spring and summer. I am also eagerly looking forward to delivery of the 1D Mark IV, which should further expand the boundaries of what is possible photographically.
Happy New Year to all!
