Wow! Those are some shots to capture! 🙂
Very cool, Kathy!
oh wow yay!
What timing, wonderful catch! On the Baraga side South of the state park?
Awesome — in the truest sense of the word!
Wow! Breathtaking Kathy!
Those photos are terrific. And I LOVE your title——
What a show just for you (and we get to share!).
What a wonderfu photo opportunity!
It’s snowing on your page ! That, and the eagle, is oh so very kewl..
Does the snow collect at the bottom of the screen ? and do you have to shovel it up ? 😉
Super cool, nothing beats the wilderness. Great capture!
These are amazing, amazing photographs, but not unusual sites in the UP.
WOW! These are incredible shots! 🙂
Love the spread of feathers on landing …
Glad you all enjoyed the flurry of feathers. Yes, John, it was just south of the park on US 41. We were on our way to Houghton and both enjoyed the chance to photograph.
And, yes, Sybil, the snow collects at the bottom of the computer screen and we have to shovel, shovel, shovel to remove it quickly so the snowbanks don’t cover the eagles and swans. LOL!
Hi Kathy, wonderful photos!! Feeling a moment of nostalgia/remembering. Thousands? of swans would come to winter in the Comox valley along with the bald eagles that came to the coast to hang out and spend the winter. Love your photos………
The sight of raptors always gets my heart pumping. What a nice gift you received.
How cool that you got the chance to photograph this! And the snow is a cute addition 🙂
Once again…glad you enjoyed! (The swans are happy at least. You never know about eagles…)
Wow! Wonderful captures, Kathy. 🙂
I am curious Kathy, did you take any photography lessons or is it pure talent!? What is your camera gear? lenses? Do you retouch some of your pictures before they get posted? I took photography lessons this year. I own a Canon Rebel T1i (500D). I bought a macro lens (EFS 60 mm 2.8) to scan old slides. I use this also for portrait. Very nice pictures all around this blog, congradulations!
Thank you also, Robin and Pierre. Pierre, I have never taken photography lessons. Don’t think of it as talent–more like luck! I own a Canon Rebel with a 18-200 lens. I would LOVE a macro lens, but can’t afford it. 😦 I don’t retouch the photos much, just because I don’t have Photoshop and don’t know how. I usually put them through Picasa and tweak the contrast/lighting a little before posting. I am glad you like the photos–it’s fun, and maybe, one of these years, I’ll take photography lessons like you.
Classes helped me to improve my techniques and learn the elements of a good composition (rule of thirds, leading lines, balance,…). For me group interaction was the key as i learned so much more from questions and errors the other participants made. My teacher was also very competent that helps too! There are many good and FREE resources on digital photography on the internet. A few sites you might want to check: http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials.htm, http://www.digital-photography-school.com/, http://www.photographymad.com/ and Wikipedia.org. Lynda.com offers some really good courses for a small monthly fee. Thanks for taking the time to reply.
