Great Blue Heron Take-off

A great blue heron takes off from the riverbank, his feet trailing in the water.  Herons are great fishing birds, they spend a lot of time standing near the shores of rivers and lakes watching carefully for fish and the right moment to strike.

This photograph was taken with my Canon 7D Mark II camera and a Sigma 150-600 mm lens set at 225 mm.  The shutter speed was set for 1/1600 second, the aperture was set to f6.3 and the ISO was set to 800.

Cottage Sunset & Manotick Arts Association Fall Show

This beautiful sunset on the Rideau River captured the bright sky colours in the water as the sun disappeared below the horizon.  The waves glistened in the sunlight as they disbursed in the shallow water by the weeds and grasses near the shoreline.  I captured this photograph my Canon 7D and a 400 mm lens.  The shutter speed was set at 1/1600 second, the aperture was set at f16 and the ISO at 800.
