After a week of overcast skies, the low winter sun finally came out when I got to the park yesterday

There are many Scaup on the Lake, but mostly in "rafts" some distance offshore. There are "Greater" and "Lesser" Scaup, but I find it hard to tell the difference.

The single Canvasback has been hanging around for several weeks.

Nope, the lens is a Contax/Yashica mount. I have several C/Y Zeiss lenses, and one M42. The setup works great!!!!

Then moonrise lighting up the ridges:

If you view these in Bikeforums slideshow mode you can flip between these two moonrise images and see the change in light
I enjoyed these very much, probably the third and last the most. The lighting of the tent and the way it fits into the scene is fantastic, I've never been able to get a lit tent shot nearly that good. And the foreground in the last one is other worldly, a camera can capture what you saw but it can also extend your ability to see, the long exposure of moonlight shows something that's real but not visible to the eye. That's really cool.

Thank you for the kind feedback Forrest, much appreciated. The tent has a red LED lantern which my son and wife were reading by at the time. I also like how long exposures bring light to night - I could not see the moonlit hills with naked eye. It is nice to know which images other find interesting as I can work on them. Critical feedback is also always appreciated and can often be more helpful

Harris Hawks in Tempe



Best I got of this one flying off.


The second hawk followed.




There was a third. By the time I changed lenses it had flown off.

We had a pair of red tails that nested just outside from our bedroom window for a few years. Lots of fun to watch them grow.

I have been seeing this Snowy Owl resting on a far off marina dock for several weeks - finally it came in for a closer view.

Well - the evergreens are still green. It's just a winter scene without the snow. I have been watching a few episodes of "Tales from the Loop" and I thought it had something of that mood. I'll make sure to post another shot when the Spring flowers come out.

I thought it was some of my B&W shots that looked a bit apocalyptic.

Can I direct everyone's attention to the monthly challenge thread - happy to get Seattle Forrest's contribution but we need more before the end of the month.

I have ridden past this monument on my bike dozens of times, but it's only on my winter COVID walks that I have come to realize just how tasteless this thing is, especially given its setting in an otherwise very dignified cemetery. A very well known Toronto business and sports magnate.
