    We have already had a couple significant snow falls here in New Hampshire. The morning after one, we also had a great sunrise. The pic I posted in the weekly competition was taken right out my front door. Then, after having a pretty mediocre fall foliage season, I finally got to see good color on a tree....

    I just got back from an organized photo tour in Costa Rica, and I have to say it was a lot of fun. The birding is phenomenal and you can also try your luck with macro shots of frogs, bugs, and snakes. If you are looking to up your library of BOAS (birds on a stick), this is the place to do it. Here are some samples... feel free to let me know if you have any questions about going there.

    Keel-billed Toucan




    White-necked Jacobin Hummingbird
    (multi-flash setup)




    Red-eyed Tree Frog
    (180 mm macro, ring flash)




    Eyelash viper
    (180 mm macro, ring flash)




    Red-legged Honeycreeper




    I bought a flash bracket and beamer for my 500 mm lens, but ended up taking most of the shots without flash. However if the background was overly bright, then the flash worked very well at improving the exposure on the birds.

    Thanks for viewing!

    Awesome stuff Jonathan!

    Personally, I would have used a supertele with a couple extenders for the viper....but that is just me....

    I took a few days off in one of the nicest medieval city in Switzerland, Fribourg. For me it was an opportunity to use my M50. Certainly nicer to carry around than the 6D, since I didn't have any real photographic ambitions for the trip.

    I'm back from a fun bear-viewing trip to Alaska, my second trip to this fabulous part of the world. This time we were in Katmai Park (last time was Lake Clark). As always there is no shortage of bears, and the backdrops are utterly incredible too. A major highlight was catching a glimpse of an elusive coastal wolf --- something I've desperately wanted to see. The viewing season starts in June and goes right through to September. We chose early season for the more quiet experience with fewer groups around. It's great having an enormous bay to just your group and the bears. What's unique about Alaska is you view the bears on foot. And what a huge difference that makes for photography. You have much more flexibility to compose your shot the way you like, and of course there is the sheer exhilaration of having nothing between you and these magnificent animals. But don't worry --- they completely ignore you as they focus on munching as much sedge grass as they can. There are many options for accommodations, and we stayed on a boat that we transferred to by float plane from Homer. To get ashore you need waders, since the bays are quite shallow. For camera gear, I brought my 500 mm and 100-400 lenses, but I think an even better choice would be the 200-400 1.4 TC (if I owned it), plus a 70-200. Some of my favourite shots are the wide-angle views when the bears happen to wander very close. Let me know if you have any questions about going there, and meanwhile here are some of the 13,000 shots I grabbed in the week:

    Really exciting shots from Alaska. Also from Costa Rica, which I'v enjoyed without commenting until now. Thanks for sharing the adventures.

    Been awhile since I've posted anything. Here are a few shots from a family trip to San Francisco last April. All pretty much standard tourist shots, but I had fun getting them myself anyway.
