Way to get the nice light Tim, it makes these all special. I wasted my trip up there by picking a rainy day. Bruce


Thanks Bruce, sometimes you just have to outguess the weather

Of course all of these are good. But what gets me are the talons of the snowy in that second shot. Wowsers.

And pfffftttt, 4 miles round trip. That's nothing. I walked uphill to AND FROM school when I was a kid.

Indeed H, the tootsies on these guys are quite formidable! You had it it easy, this tidal flat was MOUNTAINOUS!!!

Thank you Henrik

I wonder how long it would take me to drive to this spot

Beautiful light for sure at Snowy Central... Totally worth the drive.
2 is extra sweet with the traces of blood on chin and feet, I also really like the perch and focused attention. Awesome pic buddy.
Second favorite is #4 with the lovely side lighting and another cool perch.
Top shelf stuff Tim. Will be waiting for the tonnage to come.

Kirk


Oh lets see, 2 days or 17 hours I looked it up for you.

It is worth the drive for me Kirk, I'm not complaining Yes the blood makes 2. Most of these guys are bloodied, evidently no shortage of food.

Thanks Kirk, more coming!!!

Very nice. I would only suggest backing off a bit on the comp as posted, leaving the subject a bit more room to breath in the frame.


Thank you for the good words and the suggestion. I have them cropped all different styles, these happen to be tight.

SWEET lighting Tim and you captured it well!. Do you think the Snow Owls ever migrate far South to San Jose? That sounds sooo good if they do ...
