Reblogged this on Its all about having a heart!.
Thanks for the reblog Joseph. 🙂
The grasses in the horse photos didn’t bother me in the least. I think they added some nice ambiance to the photos and some depth to them too,
Thank you Alli. I just kept looking at these stray grasses popping up when editing and wanted a cleaner look. It is nice to hear you did not find them distracting. 🙂
Excellent photos and very entertaining story. I like your approach to wildlife photography – the gear, preparation and attitude are a bull’s eye. BTW: I need to upgrade my tripod and monopod this winter and would like to know more about your system?
Thanks Nick. At times I think I am a bit over the top. 😉 I sort of feel like I have the power of invisibility when I am out there and animals seem oblivious to my presence . It is thrilling and somewhat addicting. I am still getting used to the discipline of carrying a tripod. I went to a wildlife workshop and the pro teaching it never took a shot without being on his tripod. First step for me was to get a lighter one with a good easy release system for ease of use so I would carry it and use it. After a lot of research I settled on the following system and I am quite happy with it. The carbon fiber is expensive but so much lighter that I don’t mind carrying it.
Induro CT-214 8X Carbon Tripod 4 Section 61-Inch Max Height 26lb Load
Kirk BH-3 Ball Head with Quick Release Platform, 15 lbs (6.8kg) Load Capacity
Kirk Arca-Type Quick Release Lens Plate for Canon 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 IS Lens
Those are some great shots – love the owl!
Thanks for the kind comment, the visit too! 🙂
Great shots, Alison. Love the owl,and that beautiful horse. 🙂
Thank you Bob. I seem to have the luck with seeing Great Horned Owls lately. Thank you for stopping in. 🙂
What a great story and super pictures…..Oh, I think you look very fashionable.
Thank you. Just glad I never run into anyone so dressed. 😉
Again, another fun post with exceptional images!
Thank you Cynthia. 🙂
I’d forgotten I’d seen these. Or maybe I’d seen these but didn’t see you for the camouflage. 🙂
Yes, you most likely thought it was a photo of random foliage. My scheme is working… 😉
