Would make an interesting Got Milk ad?

Sometimes you have to look away from the action to see something interesting. Did you notice the ref in that last pic?

Image

Image

I like this shot, Roy seems to be ducking.

Image

Image

I think that one went in.

Image

Image

This one does.

Image

During intermission, Subway launches a few free shirts.

Image

Not sure why, but Bobby Hill gets a couple of runs around the rink with his own theme music.

Image

This needs some clever text in it. Any suggestions?

Image

Image

Look at the way they hold Hughes back. No wonder they won the game.

Image

Image

I like the determined look on his face.

Image

Image

Another goal!

Image

Take that Roy!!

Image

We’ll get them next year!


Ravens and Eagles

June 3, 2013

Some recent pics.

Image

I tried to be a bit creative and get the moon in this shot, but the raven had other plans.

Image

Image

At 100% resolution, the feathers on the underside look good, but the look on his face looks a tad creepy.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

This is why you use a long lens and shoot your subjects more at an eye level. If you don’t, you get creepy shots like this.

Nikon D600 pics

April 2, 2013

I’ve finally upgraded my old 10.2mp camera to a 24.3mp. The old one had 3 focus points, this one has 39. It’s going to take a bit to learn all the features, but it’ll be worth it.

It’s Springtime in Alaska, but still lots of snow and not many colorful subjects yet.

A black-capped chickadee.

Image

A Steller’s Jay. I like the blue colors in the feathers, but it’s hard to get a good shot with their darker feathers. They seem to prefer the top parts of trees so it’s hard to get a level shot with them, or one without foreground branches in the way.

Image

Image

A Downy Woodpecker. I like the way their spots line up on the feathers.

Image

Image

Image

The squirrel was in the shade. The D600 does very well in low light situations. Image
