Hanging with Z and G

Hanging with Z and G

I had such a fun day hanging with my Niece and Nephew Zach and Gracie. In order to keep the kids busy, we decided to pop outside and play in the newly blossoming Blue Bonnets.  Here are some pictures of the kids playing around. I have decided once a photographer, always a photographer, I can never go anywhere with out the camera in hand!

I had fun playing around with my Nifty Fifty lens and also my 70-200 2.8 massive lens!

Montana To Texas

Montana To Texas

I recently did a small road trip from Montana to Texas. In our almost 1,980 Miles, we saw endless sky’s, fields and rolling hills. The trip lasted 3nights and 4 days and all of the photographs where taken out of the co-pilots window while moving. There is no stopping when Wade is your driver, so I learnt to be quick and get the shots before we passed them by. I learned that shooting through the tinted windows worked pretty good as long as your lens was pressed up against the glass, but sometimes the focus would be off. So I tried to roll down my window at a rapid pace in order to get the shots that I really wanted.

The pictures are in no particular order, but maybe you can guess what States each image are from. We drove from Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico and then Texas!

Photo Walk Bitterroot

Photo Walk Bitterroot

There is nothing like a good photo walk to get you re-inspired in photography. Today I had a photo partner.  M.E.  joined me with her nice new camera.

These shots where taken with my Fujifilm XE-1 and the Zeiss 12mm Touit Lens (Which is amazing!!!) also, I used the Fujifilm 18-55 2.8-4 lens.

Here are some more shots from the Lee Metcalf Wildlife Refuge, in Stevensville Montana. I managed to get a couple of Panos finished, but had to make them pretty small to fit them on the Blog.  The mountain shots are of the Sapphire Mountain Range, which is opposite the Bitterroot Mountain Range.

Lee Metcalf Photo Walk

Lee Metcalf Photo Walk

I often like to go out for a photo walk especially if I am in an area that might have some Bald Eagles present. I have a bit of a photo secret. My most favorite thing to photograph is Bald Eagles!!! I am not sure why, but capturing them is incredibly exciting and when ever I get a free chance, I love to get out there and photograph as many of them as I can find.

Walking through Lee Metcalf Wildlife Refuge, in Stevensville Montana, is absolutely beautiful. There are so many different species of birds and wildlife through out this massive Refuge. In the evenings there tends to be a lot more activity through in the park and you can just drive through and jump out with your camera when you see something. There is around 2 1/2 miles of Nature Trails as well, so its a great place to hike, walk or explore.

Here is the website for the Refuge: Lee Metcalf

These photographs where taken on a Nikon D600, 1.7X tele convertor and 300mm 2.8 lens. Also for the barn shots I used a Fujifilm XE-1 with Zeiss Touit 12mm 2.8 lens.
