Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Magical.

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Magical.

I was thinking about the challenge and had this post mostly written in my head on Sunday evening. On Monday I started considering a completely different selection of photos before deciding to combine my ideas.

My original ideas was to detail some of the magical experiences photographing nature subjects. Then I started thinking about some of the magical landscapes and skies I have photographed.

In the end I went with a mix of nature encounters and landscapes.

Pond Skaters, not only can they walk on water, they also mate on the water. Taken on a garden pond in Hatherton, Cheshire, England.

An Osprey with a White Sucker on the Lake Huron shoreline, Ontario, Canada. Not only can the bird spot and catch a fish in rough water but it can then carry the fish in the most aerodynamic position.

Snow Geese on autumn migration. Taking off from a section of the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area, Saskatchewan, Canada. This is a small part of one of the flocks in the area.

    1. Thanks Tina. I wasn’t sure about including the Snow Geese. Just because it’s special to me doesn’t mean others will appreciate it.

      1. Thirty odd years later I can confess that I used a Tamron lens on an Olympus camera. The shot also won me a limited edition, gold Seiko watch in a national U.K. photo competition.
