Mountsberg Workshop Friday Jan 22Nd, 2010

Thanks to all my guests! We sure had a good time shooting (lets not talk about the wind in the morning!!)

Amy Fennell did a great job presenting the birds at the Raptor Center, near Campbellville Ontario, Canada. We started with the Barn Owl on a high fence post, and later move to a lower more protected area, to get out of the wind.

The snow and ice on the ground help with the nice light on an overcast day. My friends Megan Lorenz, Russ Campbell, and Leigh Beird joined me for yet another of many workshops that they both have attended. Another participant ... a wonderful gentleman named Peter Bisset. Peter was kind enough to bring several perches and they all proved to be very useful. Peter has won over 620 awards in PSA competitions and is very much involved in serious nature photography.

It was interesting to watch Peter using a Hasselblad camera, macro lens, and slide film! I hope we can find a way to see his images some day.

Greg Lederman joined us all the way from Michigan!! thanks Greg, great to shoot with you again. Thanks to Stu Dewalle and his grand daughter Sarah! ... I hope you guys had fun, and caught some nice images.


  1. luv the owl shots...especially the first Screech !

  2. Ray these owl pictures are wonderful. They make me want to switch to Nikon, but I know that you are a very talented photographer, and it's not just the camera.
