Snow geese migration - Saint-Antoine-de-Tilly, Quebec

Articles Chen caerulescens geese migration photo photograph photography Quebec river Saint-Antoine-de-Tilly snow geese snow goose St. Lawrence St. Lawrence River

It's my father's birthday - April 25th. My father passed away almost 3 years ago and I was inspired to mention all this on account of running into a few geese today. I've been touring Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Quebec and I have many images to sift through; most are kite aerial photographs. But I'm jumping ahead to these shots that I took today because of the link between geese and my father. Dad was repeatedly amazed by the semiannual migration of Canada geese, thousands of which flew over Ottawa each fall and spring. We were frequently the beneficiaries...

Earlier I reported on the "aerial" part of my involvement at the 2011 Windscape Kite Festival. See KAP 2011-7 – Windscape Kite Festival – Swift Current, Saskatchewan – June 25 & 26, 2011. I mentioned that after the first morning I had to abandon my own kiting efforts (doing Kite Aerial Photography) but I substituted some ground-based photography of the people and the kites. Finally I have processed these images and I have placed almost 200 of them in a Windscape Kite Festival 2011 gallery on my website as well as in a Facebook album. Here are a couple of...

I'm fortunate to live a few minutes walk from the Ottawa River just west of Westboro Beach. I often head there with my camera when light or weather conditions present an interesting opportunity. I went to the river on New Year's Eve, prompted by huge globs of snowflakes falling from the sky in the hope of capturing some action blurring of falling snow. By the time I got out there the conditions had changed so that plan was off, but I was thankful to have been prompted to get outside because the conditions were still quite nice in other ways....
