a cool day

Thursday, June 7th, 2007

The weather has been very erratic here over the past few weeks. Last weekend, we were baking, but the past couple of days, I’ve been covering the vegetable garden with tarpaulins as there has been a threat of frost. As I write this post, the temperature is about 15C (58F). It was colder yesterday morning […]

take a look

If you have a relatively quick net connection, here’s something you might like to see. Gus Frederick, a friend from the left coast, has put one of his time-lapse photo creations up on You Tube. It features a bract of rhododendron flowers blossoming. The sequence is amazing and I’m sure most of you will enjoy […]

some news

Wednesday, May 9th, 2007

Those who know me well, also know that I’m rather pathetic at blowing my own horn. I’m very shy and incredibly uncomfortable about talking up what I do — not exactly a useful characteristic for a person who should be doing more to promote her nature photography.

Now, for a few reminders before I put up my main […]

nature photography – questions anyone?

Tuesday, March 20th, 2007

With the weather we’re getting this morning, you would never know it’s almost spring here. At 7:45 a.m., it’s about -15C (6F), with strong, gusting winds, and a windchill of -21C (-6F). However, the crazy thing is, by Thursday, the temperature is supposed to be 16C (61F). Our region is certainly an interesting if often […]

some notes and reminders

Friday, March 16th, 2007

A few notes and reminders before I go on to my main post of the day: * Hummingbird Migration: I’ve added a new link to the Citizen Science page of my blog. It’s a link to the Hummingbird Migration page where you view updating maps of the first-sightings-of-the-season of male Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in Canada and […]
