Today is a beautiful day, shinny and warm. Took some bird pictures along the Niagara River.

Nice shots. Are those ice bergs in the river?

Nice shots Jason! It's nice to see that one of my neighbors here in WNY is getting out with their camera.I got a K100D inJanuary, but up until this week it's been too cold for me to go out. What are you shooting with? Any issues in cold temps?

Darren, thanks for your comments. Yes, they are ice bergs.

Thanks, a200user. I was shooting with a K110D. The first picuture was shot with my zenitar 16mm fisheye (defished). The last was also shot with this lens, but not defished, as it is hard to see the barrel effects. All others were shot with a Sigma 70-300mm DG APO. Today is not cold at all (about +2 degrees)

Nice shots. Looks like a scene from alaska! Too bad you couldn't get closer to those ducks. Looking forward to seeing more of your pics.

Thanks royce10. Those ducks (scaups) are very uncooperative. They won't let people approach them any closer than about 100 feet. I wish I have a Bigma lens!

Beautiful scenery... Not sure how much the birds really add to the pictures, but that is some amazing scenery! Great shooting! I really gotta get one of those Zenitar's... gotta dump some other glass first, but it's on my list!

Wonderful scenery! I'm looking at them on the crummy monitor at work, so I can't judge quality very well, but the two taken with the Zenitar look great, even on this monitor.
