Cool Foggy Day

We awoke to a gorgeous day with very light clouds and the sun was shining. In a blink of an eye the fog rolled in and turned everything gray. It's not bad for photography as the fog is like a giant light diffuser bringing out nice bold colors. Yesterday I put up a new perch using a really beautiful oak branch covered in lichens and moss. This morning I put it to use photographing the Western Gray Squirrels and Steller's Jays as they came to feed. My favorite image was of this Gray Squirrel. It was perfectly posed. God's blessings upon your days, chris This image was created with a Canon 7D MkII camera and a TAMRON | SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 lens at 150mm. Fill flash was provided by Canon 550 EX flash set to high speed synch and -2 stops exposure. the camera settings used were, AV mode, ISO 4000, F 5.0 at 1/250th of a sec.#teamcanon, #tamron


  1. The new perch is really nice. I just went for a walk this morning admiring and photographing the mods on the yes and rocks. It is very beautiful. Your photography is always beautiful also Chris!

    1. Thanks for stopping by and commenting, Brian. The feeling is mutual. I really enjoy seeing your photography from the valley and along the river.
