Re: Just Some Shots

Having grown up around an artificial lake /reservoir of a dam I always liked dams and modular floodgate abstracts...
Pity the floodgates are not open to show modular bubbling foamy white water finding way down.
Memories of my childhood...

:D Thank you for sharing, JBTaylor.

It's Pine Grosbeak.
Thanks, Valery, so it's a Pine Grosbeak. And it looks good on a snowy day while easily noticeable.

The bird shots are a set of winter joy. Beautifully shot. Scarlet Finch (?) stands out!
Love the squirrel.

Love the hiding fox and the Niagara environment all lit up with unusual light sculptures, ValeryD.

Your Niagara Falls gallery is absolutely very rich with exciting shots. Well executed.

Neat shots, Sury.
The lens sounds good for many shooting experiences. I like the isolation of the flower in the second shot very much.

Re: Tiny sensor revenge gallery thread!

. Just astounding, ValeryD. :D Your travel and location shots are very inspiring for me. I want to use the camera of my phone just as neatly. Very clear and crispy view of the plane's wing with an interesting land beneath but the Canadian night shot with those lights and snow is outstanding! :D Than...

Thank you, Sury. :)

I had the pleasure of viewing your B&W ventures that you executed so successfully!
I also enjoy B&W for showing a whole new aspect of any subject without the distraction of many colours.

Happy holidays and thanks for sharing your Schlumbergera and lilies. :)

Flowers 2020/21

Hi and I hope everyone is doing fine. :D A humble beginning... My Christmas cactus/Schlumbergera always astonishes me by blooming all of its blossoms through December, most blooms being around 24th and 25th. The timing is almost always precise. Interesting fact about the plant. Happy holidays everyo...

Re: No Luck For Me

. That's unfortunate, JBTaylor. The seagulls look like little guards of the same order from the way they are identically positioned though. :D And there are still some surfers waiting to catch a good wave, surprisingly, since there's a hurricane emerging. I love the slideshow of the cute dogs. They ...

Re: Inspired by (Lat Update)

Thank you so much Yildiz, for noticing everything. Yes, I am now 58. A final note. Most of the images captured from this wonderful day were taken from the hip or below. Only a few were taken with the camera held to my face. The flip screen on the a99 is a must and should be as common as back up cam...
