01/09/19 Canada Trip

Posted: March 31, 2019 in Uncategorized

It’s been some time since my last post, so I’m skipping ahead a few months. I had the opportunity to accompany my good friend and wildlife photographer, Harry Collins, on a trip to Canada to scout out his future workshop. We landed in Seattle and worked our way up through British Columbia to Alberta and the Calgary area. We flew six hours, drove another eleven hours, and walked about 40 miles during the week. Needless to say, we had a blast. I finally got the chance to photograph a Great Gray Owl; we encountered several up in Alberta. We also made contact with hundreds of Bald Eagles, Snowy Owls, Moose, Short-eared Owls, Otters, Ducks, Harriers, and Coyotes. Thanks to Harry for some awesome research, I will remember the beauty of the Canadian Rockies forever. Click Harry’s name above to check out his future workshops.

    Awesome series Ray. Glad you had a fun trip.

  6. Magnificent! Ray, each is a masterpiece and the trip sounds literally divine. Friendship is such a miracle – and you seem as skilled at finding worthy friends as capturing memorable creatures in action. I am grateful for you. Left eye is complete – and I can see without glasses. Flawed cataract in right will go its merry way April 10. First bird I saw with new lens is red-wing. First flowers, Dutchmen’s britches (so TINY!) and tight blue buds of bluebells. And now you send me all these feasts, as if gifts to the new eye! Smiles c
