    I'm back from a repeat visit to my favourite bear viewing spot in central British Columbia, and as always the photo opportunities were spectacular. This time I brought two 1DX III bodies, mated to a 500 f/4 and a 100-400. I'm still going through the 23,000 images I took in the week, but here are some of the better ones:





    A very rare white cub!





    The stuff nightmares are made of...




    Sad to see me go?

    I loved using the AF-ON trackpad focus control on the 1DX III, and so I kept in single-point focus mode for most of the time. When I tried the full-spread focus points with auto tracking, it would tend to wander across the bear instead of staying on the head. So that wasn't the best. One guy on the trip had a R5, and he was having fabulous success with the eye AF tracking. Still, I'm quite delighted with how the 1DX III worked, and the fast shutter speed and infinite buffer were gold when action was happening. Also I didn't bother with a rain cover when we had light rain, and it carried on just fine. All shooting was done from small flat-bottom boats, so everything is hand held (although I typically used my camera bag as a support for the 500 as I kept low in the boat).

    Thanks for viewing!

    Thanks everyone! You can't go wrong at this spot --- it was my third visit there and you get unique stuff everytime. I sure love the adrenaline rush when a scene comes together. There is also a bit of stress involved, since you desperately do not want to screw up! Focus, exposure compensation, shutter speed, ISO, focal length, composition ---- all these requirements are flying through your head while you're leaning hard on the shutter button. Each of the shots above came from scenes that lasted for a few seconds at most (or a split second, in a couple cases). I think it's this huge rush that keeps me coming back --- yes I must be a junkie .

    I entered a few pics of this waterfall in the weekly contest. Here are a few other compositions that I liked. A great waterfall.
