Year in Photos – Week 26

This week marks the halfway point of the year in photos. Hopefully I can get back to more regular new pictures after this week.

My favourite bird to photograph is the Common Loon. Whether at the cottage or while camping, I usually see or hear them at least once during the trip.

Canon 80D – Sigma 150-600mm – 600mm – f6.3 – 1/500 – ISO 1000

This pair of loons, in Algonquin Park, were a fair distance away. The hardest part of this shot was keeping the lens steady while sitting in the bow of the canoe.

Yup, another sunset shot from the cottage.

Canon 80D – EFS 10-22mm – 22mm – f4.5 – 1/6400 – ISO 400

While the angle might be similar, every sunset is different and just as spectacular.

The only new photo this week was taken during a walk through the Laurel Creek Conservation Area.

Canon 80D – EFS 18-135mm – 24mm – f4.5 – 1/2000 – ISO 200

They gypsy moth caterpillars have done a real number on the deciduous trees this year. Many of these beech trees were bare or very sparse. Hopefully they will have time to push a new set of leaves before the fall.

This is the oldest throwback picture that I’m sharing. When I’m camping or at the cottage, I might spend an evening or two doing some astrophotography.

Canon 80D – EFS 18-135mm – 18mm – f3.5 – 20 sec – ISO 160

It’s become harder to get clean Milky Way shots from the cottage due to the light pollution of town that is due south.

Another Algonquin Park loon picture. Most of the pictures I take of this bird show it drifting across the surface.

Canon 80D – EFS 18-135mm – 135mm – f5.6 – 1/640 – ISO 200

A little patience pays off as the loon stands up in the water and shakes its feathers after emerging from the depths of the lake.

We decided to venture to a new place for some hiking, and I hoped to get some fall colour pictures as well.

Canon 80D – EFS 10-22mm – 10mm – f3.5 – 1/8000 – ISO 1000

We ended up at the Mono Cliffs Provincial Park at the peak of the fall colours, along with hundreds of other people. This park is a popular destination for fall colours.

Finishing off this week with a cottage sunset picture.

Canon 80D – EFS 10-22mm – 10mm – f3.5 – 1/2500 – ISO 100

I took a few shots from this point and really liked how the exposure was well balanced and nothing was too dark or washed out.
