  Additional Nature & Wildlife

This page contains nature and wildlife photographs which may be of interest, but which I feel are in a lesser category than the ones on my main Nature Page.

Lilly Pads — Muskoka, Ontario, 1993

For several years I was frustrated with my inability to make a decent Cibachrome print of this image. There is a wonderful delicacy to the faint underwater forms, but the contrast problems inherent in the Cibachrome / Ilfochrome process didn't allow them to remain clearly visible in prints.

I came across this transparency recently and in minutes was able to make a scan and print interpretation in PhotoShop that had stymied me for so long in the darkroom. Look at the enlarged version to see what I mean.

Sea Ranch Flora, 1995

The rock and flora details available along the sea cliffs near The Sea Ranch make for hours of enjoyable hiking with ones camera. I have literally dozen of shots like this. Choosing which are my favourites is always difficult.

Photographed with a Mamiya 645 and 150mm lens with extension tube.

Deer 1, Quebec, 2000

On a spring afternoon in the Laurentian Mountains north of Montréal I saw at least 8 deer during a 3 hour period. This young doe was kind enough to pose for me while I braced myself on the hood of the car and hand-held the shot at 400mm.

Photographed with a Canon EOS3 and 100~400mm f/5.6L IS lens on Provia F100 film.
