Miles Away...

Miles Away...

Eastern Ontario

Sometimes you can get so close as to see the pupils of a Snowy Owl. Then there was last Saturday. Yes, that dot in the tree is a Snowy Owl. After posting several close encounters my last few times out to this area, I was confident that it would be a piece of cake. Needless to say, I think my job of being Vatorman's tour guide for these mysterious raptors is in serious trouble!! (Composite)

Cheers !

Beautiful work! Beautiful sunset and layers of colors. Super composition. It is also quite nice to see a scene where you find your gorgeous Snowy Owls.

Hi Bill,
Nice seeing you on Saturday and following the reluctant and shy Snowies. I have a different perspective of the same image; but LightRoom is giving me problems so when I sort those out, I'll post my version of the same scene. Thanks fpr all of your help on Saturday.

Exquisite layers of colors, beautiful sunset. I am sure Vatorman will still want your services. V

I think this is a fantastic photo and I am quite sure the owl was happy to be far away from the cameras. This doesn't need the snowy owl in it to make it a stunner. V

Very nice view Bill...Those close encounters are worth their weight in GOLD!; But you can't say anything bad about an image like this. Well done!

Very nice and typical of where a Snowy would hang out.

Super sunset image Bill, beautifully composed. Never mind the Owl, you'll get it an other time.
