Panda Walk

Panda Walk

 

This will be another week straight from my archive. These slides all came from the same Kodachrome box with mounts imprinted with the Kodak Olympic Press Center, so I know they were all taken in February 1988. This was the last time the Giant Pandas visited Calgary. The Giant Pandas will return in 2018 http://www.calgaryzoo.com/media-releases/return-panda-magic-confirmed The Giant Pandas are on a ten year loan to Canada with the first five years spent in Toronto.

Ducks In A Row

Ducks In A Row

 

I remember a warm summer’s evening connected with this image. We were at the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary walking on the paths and looked back towards the west across the lagoon. An old log was sticking out into the water and was lined with ducks, a lone bird paddled his way out to the end. I liked the way that his wake melded in with the ripples on the water. The golden light  before sunset was an added bonus.

Maya The Wolf

Sherri and I spent an afternoon at the Northern Lights Wildlife Center near Golden, BC. We had booked a photo session and were taken for a walk in the wood with a wolf. Maya wandered about and through the trees and I photographed her as she more or less followed her handler.

Coot Wake

Coot Wake

Rain was not a deterrent when we went out to Vermillion Lakes. This little American Coot was in a hurry going somewhere. The wake that it left behind made a pleasing pattern in the water with the rain drops spotting the surface.

Coot And Reeds

Coot And Reeds

When the weather turns overcast and the clouds move in so that I can’t see the mountains, there are still things to photograph. We went out to Vermillion Lakes just to enjoy the outdoors and see the sights. I managed to capture a few frames that I thought were decent. I loved the patterns in the water.
