Oh Canada #AtoZCanada

Oh Canada! What can I say about how beautiful my country is. Here are some of my favourite placed and pictures of Canada.

Probably one of the most beautiful places on the East coast is Cape Breton Island.

But I was most surprised by the Gaspé.

Then, there it the Hopewell Rocks in New Brunswick.

This is just a taste of Canada, but I would be remiss not to celebrate my home, Toronto.

W is for Wildlife

Learning how to photograph different things while I travel is part of the challenge and is becoming a passion. When I took a cruise around the tip of South America, not only sis I see cities and expansive landscapes, but I become challenged by taking photographs of wildlife. Here are some of my favorite photos of wildlife.

First group: sea lions in Argentina.

This group a seals found a floating dock to use as a place to catch some rays — and to play in the surf.

Birds have been more difficult for me.  Here are some of my first attempts at taking photos of birds. These were taking new Cape Horn.

Off the coast of Ushuaia, Argentina, there are groups of islands that are homes to various seals, sea lions, and water birds.

And of course, there are penguins!

So, I started looking for other opportunities. In the Canadian Maritimes, I was able to get a fox on a beach at sunset, I got “photo-bombed” by a seal near Cheticamp, and watched an eagle fish on Bras d’Or.

 

And finally, from near where I live, is Niagara Falls. If you look closely, you can see at least twobirds in this picture.IMG_6413_edited-1
