Yakima Canyon Eagles

Took the morning to drive up to the look out on I-90 overlooking the Ellensburg valley.  Was hoping to get some great sunrise shot of the valley and the mountains in the distance.  Unfortunately there is a storm coming in and it was cloudy and overcast.  So I didn’t even get my camera out. So …

Red Tail Hawk

On New Year’s Day morning I was out with our chocolate lab, Lucy, and saw this Red Tail hawk up in the trees where we live. So I ran and got my camera and my 300mm lens which has the 1.4x teleconverter on it, to take some photos. The sun was behind a cloud bank …

Coyote

A couple of Sundays ago we noticed a “dog” we didn’t recognize out in the field by our house.  I thought it might be a coyote so we got the binoculars and took a look.  Sure enough it was a coyote hunting field mice. So I ran downstairs and got my camera to get some …

Hummingbird

Saturday morning I took the opportunity to photograph some of the humming birds that come to our feeders in the yard.  There is a short window of time in the mornings where the sun shines through the trees and illuminates the hummingbird feeders.  Of course as usual when I look out at the feeders there …

Red-Tailed Hawk

From most of these photographs it is hard to tell this is a red-tailed hawk. That is why I showed the first photograph before the others. I loved the dramatic lighting and highlighting the sun provided in most of these. ” order_by=”pid” order_direction=”ASC” returns=”included” maximum_entity_count=”500″]

Owl and Hawk

On the Saturday of Eagle Flight Days, as we went over to the city park for rides and fun, we were treated to 3 owls in one of the large trees in the park. Unfortunately, I only had my 24-120mm lens with me.  I had left my 300mm at home not thinking I would need …

Saturday I wanted to do some hiking and some photography.  So I borrowed a friends 4runner and headed up to Sylvan Lake State Park outside of Eagle Co.  It was rained on and off for the first few hours I was there.  Not too hard just a slight rain.  Because of this I walked along …
