Wildlife photographer in New Brunswick rigged a DSLR to a motion detector to try to get a shot of a lynx she had noticed on a trail near where she lived. Amazing.

Those last couple of photos are great.
Well, to be fair I had to enhance the original images a fair bit. The weather was awful most of the time. In some places I struggled to open the door of my car because of the pressure the wind put on it.
But it seems my little camera (Olympus SZ-30 MR) did a decent enough job. I've been thinking about buying a DSLR, but I won't really get enough use out of it to justify the investment.

FYI, Loch Ness is effing boring, and so is Inverness (or any other settlement up there). Old continental villages and towns are so much nicer.

Some photos of mine that one of the newest lawyer firms in town used online. Hamilton still has some wonderful older architecture.

Taken at Southerness (Solway coast). I had to wait for some very unattractive British people to disappear inside that lighthouse...




No idea what these are called:



And finally some wind battered trees:

Absolutely - that's a lovely photo. Phone cameras are getting better by the year, although dedicated cameras still do much better in low light and night-time situations.

Is this the Netherlands?
Some of it, the first one, the lake and the one with swans. In the winter, if it looks like a clear blue sky day at the weekend, I will get up an hour before sunrise and start walking around the local lakes, mere and paths through the wooded areas. You get that pink, orange, hues of grey and blue as the sun rises and you see the birds and nature come alive. I find it just the tonic to set you up for the day.

The one on the hill is atop Moel Famau which is the highest summit in the Clwydian Range in North Wales. About 15 mins from where I use to live. Fantastic views on top towards mount Snowdon, Ruthin, the Welsh coast and the other way, to the Wirral peninsular and the Cheshire plain.

The last one is in Arezzo, Tuscany. Not much going on there, but shows how superior phone cameras are to the old world of film cameras where getting that shot would need the right film and tripod.

I sometimes think I'd like to go back. I was there 15 years ago when I didn't even know how to work a camera; I remember it rained almost the entire month of August. I wouldn't know nowadays... As much as I'd enjoy shooting long exposures of Rotterdam or Amsterdam's train stations I'd probably get pickpocketed before I knew it.
