Unexpected Visitors

We’ve been experiencing a few cold-snaps here on the coast this last week or so, and with the incoming Arctic air, we’ve also received snow in the upper regions, something that was all but non-existent last year (much to the chagrin of the ski shops and the skiers themselves). So since it’s become such a rarity around here these days, I thought I’d grab a few pictures of the snow-capped mountains while I was out and about today. As these things usually seem to go, while I was in the process of trying to snap pictures of the mountains, not only did I have an eagle fly directly over my shooting path (the key words, unfortunately, being, “directly over“), but also a bluebird zipped right past me just as I was starting to click the shutter, and I was able to divert my focus enough to catch a couple of almost perfectly clear shots of that little guy, and even with the slight blur, they were the best shots I got of a bluebird this year. Oh wait, they were the only shots of a bluebird I got this year. Oh well, such is life. Anyway, So add to those shots, one of a tourist (I think) with too many clothes on even for our weather), one of Canada Place, and one of a busy little harbor area toward Stanley Park and you have an even dozen shots to glance at.

So I hope everything is going well with everyone, and I hope this finds you all healthy and happy. Have a really great week-end, smile lots, and we’ll see you next time.

    1. Hey Matt, I was using the AF-S Nikkor 55-200mm 1:4-5.6G ED on my Nikon D3200. Both the lens and the camera are the least expensive models made by Nikon in the DSLR products. It was a kit that came with the body, an 18-55 Nikon lens, and the lens I just described, plus a few accessories, all for $600.00 Cnd. I’ve never had a single complaint and you can just check my site’s postings back to Feb. or Mar. of 2014 to see what kind of work it produces. For an entry-level camera, I’m more than happy with it. Oops, sorry about the length, I like talking about my camera. : )
