Went over there the New Year weekend. Birds are almost non-existent. Particularly quiet this time of the yr. At the left is the former brick factory of Toronto. Lens is Zenitar manual lens 16mm

2nd one from my macro lens FA100mm 2.8. Not much critters to shoot as you can see

Maybe the birds were south for the winter, but you have a wonderful eye for composition and some great subjects. I especially like the landscape!

I should know better than to look at your pictures when I'm on the lousy monitor. When I looked at these pictures this afternoon, I thought these were nice, but not as good as yours usually are. I come home and look at them again, and the first one just jumped out at me. Really like it! When the birds go in hiding, there's always landscape and macros (even if it is snow and pine cones, my latest subjects).

Really like the landscape shot. The hills just keep on rolling from one edge to the next. It would be great if you retook this exact scene in each season. Snowy winter, green spring, and colorful autumn. It would make an interesting comparison. Just a thought for a photography project.

royce, Int observer and mtngal,

Thanks for your nice comments. I am playing around to see if pano shots of the first may be more interesting/inspiring. A walk through the wet land in Jan is alreadyunheard of as the temp is warm enough and above freezing mark.

Cheers

Daniel, Toronto

Edited in : Thanks Kjell

The Zenitar really came in the right hands. You're squeezing the best out of it, Daniel. The ???-grass? shot is also very nice. Did you try one in portrait orientation also?
