Why would I include a picture of a fumarole in a post about my dog?
Well, the other day Ellie added to her growing list of dietary adventures by eating a tub of margarine. That evening, Sam was sleeping on my lap as Ellie’s digestive system struggled to cope. Every so often he’d raise his head up and I knew his superior senses detected an incoming round that mine did not. Much like when I photograph the fumaroles and mud pots and geysers in Yellowstone, I was thankful that I have such a poor sense of smell.
Halloween is this Saturday. What if a child comes to the door dressed as a baby hedgehog?
No Ellie no!
I like to shoot with two cameras when I can tolerate the extra room and weight. While at Oxbow Bend to photograph Mount Moran at sunrise, I noticed these three young men grinning from ear-to-ear while paddling a canoe off to my left. Leaving my main camera on the tripod with its wide angle zoom attached, I grabbed my backup camera with the telephoto zoom and grabbed a quick snapshot. There’s more than one way to enjoy the Oxbow sunrise.
I took this picture in 2006. At the time, the Canon 20D was my main camera and the 10D the backup. When Canon announced the 7D, I wanted to get it and move the 20D into the backup role, but you can’t always get what you want …
This picture of a hungry marmot was the last picture my camera took before the shutter packed it in. At least it went out on a high note!
I’ve chosen the Canon 7D to be my 20D’s successor, a friend at work was showing me his and I think its new features will add a lot of fun to my photography in a similar way that the 20D did five years ago. Now I just have to find one!
Another view of the marmots from the colony near the Skyline Trail, two juveniles being watched by an adult. With the two youngsters side-by-side, you can really see the variability in their coloring, black coat on the left and white coat on the right.
Different colors. Equally chubby.
