September landscape workshop plus latest pics

My apologies for the lack of postings lately - the weather has been far too good to be sitting inside at a computer!

Just wanted to give a plug for a landscape photography workshop I'm holding here on the Bruce Peninsula in mid-September (15/16). Check out my workshop webpage for full details by clicking here:

The first photo below is a a place we'll visit on the workshop - Indian Head Cove in Bruce Peninsula National Park. This is one of my favorite spots on the peninsula. The photo is a self-portrait from a few days ago.

Photo 2 is Piping Plover tracks through rippled sand. The pattern and late day shadows really caught my attention.

The last photo is from yesterday, at the wedding of my good friends Ron and Carrie. I was in the wedding party, tux and all, but still had my camera handy to shoot some candid photos of Ron & Carrie.
Hope you're having a good summer!

Frogs to fields to birds.....

This is a great time of year for photography - so many things to shoot and so little time! I'm so far behind editing photos. Here are a few from the past week. All with EOS 1DSm2

About the photos:

1) My friend caught this Wood Frog and I shot it at a setup on my deck before releasing it. 70-200/2.8 lens with 25 + 12mm extension tubes.

2) Canola field in peak bloom, along Highway 6 north of the town of Ferndale. 17-40/4 lens with Singh-Ray warming circular polarizer LB (my favourite filter - I use it for 90% of my landscape shots).

3/4) Piping Plover adult and chick. 600/4 plus teleconvertors.
Hope you're enjoying summer!
