Photo of the Month – September 2016

Congratulations to Jim Loomis – winner of the Photo of the Month contest for September


The photograph was taken on the Upper St. Joe River from a pontoon boat using a Nikon D610 camera with a 70-200  2.8 lens and a 1.4 teleconverter.  “I had been trying to photograph birds ‘on the wing’, hence the high speed. The swan was in a shaded area, giving me the idea to superimpose it against a black background. I had actually gone out to find herons to photograph, but also came back with this unique shot.”

Camera settings:  1/1000 sec., f/4, ISO 200, Focal length 280 mm.

Photo of the Month – August 2016

Congratulations to Kay Rhodes – winner of the Photo of the Month contest for August


This photo was taken on June 7th, 2016, in Stephen’s Pass near Juneau, Alaska. We were on a whale watching tour and while we did see quite a few whales (tails and backs), this scene showing a glacier between the mountains was one of my favorite photos from that day.  Our Alaskan adventure was unbelievably spectacular, especially for one who loves nature and photography. Not realizing it at the time, I even caught an eagle flying into my scene in the top left corner of the photo.

Photo specs: Canon 5D Mark III, EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS II lens, f/8.0, 1/1600 sec., ISO 160, Manual exposure, RAW, focal length 155mm

Photo of the Month – June 2016

Congratulations to Jeff Longenbaugh – winner of the Photo of the Month contest for June

This photo was taken on the 4th day of a six day raft trip down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon.  Every bend in the river exposed a new fantastic vista of towering walls made of rock a million years old.  In addition to these scenes that were almost religious in nature, we also found numerous, smaller side canyons created by streams making their way to the Colorado.  This intimate image is one of those streams that we waded against the current to find lush vegetation, falls and eddies.
Fuji XT-1 body.  Fuji 10-24 lens.  F 13, Iso 200, 1/9 of a sec. Polarizer filter.  Manfrotto tripod. Kirk Enterprises ballhead.
