Nature Images

With the arrival of spring I look forward to walking along to river and seeing what presents itself to my lens.

There are a few areas locally that Great Blue Herons permit a close approach.

Same heron a little later the same day.

Taken with my Pentax * ist D and SMC Pentax-M* 300mm f:4 lens. Ottawa River midway between Tunney’s Pasture and Island Park Dr.

Sometimes I get a treat, like this Mallard hen doing a little dance for the camera.

It’s pretty hard to go anywhere near the river without seeing  gulls, here we have a Ring-billed Gull in winter plumage.

Not exactly National Geographic coverage, but I will look into shooting some more nature this year.



About Darrell Larose

I am a highly motivated self confessed techno-geek. While rooted in traditional analog photography, I have embraced the new technologies in photography. I am just as comfortable under the dark cloth of a large-format view camera, as I am with a digital camera. I can produce award winning photographs within the darkroom, or from a digital-desktop. With 40 years of photography as a both hobby, and over 30 in the professional arena I have always produced. I am self-taught in the digital media, I have been a PhotoShop user since 1995 (version 2.5) I found the transition fairly seamless due to my long experience in labs. I have worked within various Government photo units, including the Forensic Photo Section of the RCMP, as well as various professional labs. I can easily converse with a police forensic photographer as I can with a wedding sports or commercial photographer. I have worked for several of Ottawa’s top photographers. I have worked at several pro labs. As well as many years in photo retail.
