Astotin Lake, Elk Island
Posted By: daacon, 06-04-2013, 07:42 AM

A break from the birds. I went out to Elk Island National Park on Saturday evening for some shots. It's one of the first times I never saw one Bison. Food is plenty this time of year and they were likely deep in the park.

I did manage some landscapes. It was a beautiful evening, except for the millions of mosquitos around. I was covered up pretty good and had some deet as this is not my first rodeo out there , but some of them still managed to get me.

click on image twice for larger view

#1 - When I first arrived , very calm waters .....


#2 - a 5 shot +/- 1.7 HDR


#3 - This couple approached me after asking if I got a shot of them (they saw a photographer up on the hill) and asked me to send it to them. I did a few days ago , I don't mind at all. I did not hear back from him , so kinda dissapointed with that , oh well.


#4 - Hand held pano of the area - I tried one from the tripod - hand held one came out better


#5 - one last look

This is a wonderful series. I love the colours and tones... your compositions are lovely. The last one is very creative. i can't understand rudeness... it is so easy to say thanks. Really really nice shooting Dave.

I like the one with the canoe, very unusual wave pattern, and it has a canoe in it, a double bonus... thanks for sharing.
