Sorry to away from the blog I’ve had a few major projects at the paper to deal with. One of which was the “Day in the Life” project with Channel 5’s Chronicle. The response was much greater than I had expected. That’s a good thing. You folks sent some fantastic images. Given that the day was gray and rainy I was very surprised with the imagination and technical quality of the shots. As soon as I get a date for broadcast and publication I will post it here. I think I edited nearly five hundred images from readers and staff photographers from our Massachusetts papers.
I was glad to get out this week and start making pictures again. The snow in the sunshine this morning was a treat. I took some time to head down to Manomet Point in Plymouth at low tide to find some seals. I got to one of my favorite spots a little late on the rising tide. Only a few seals were still on the rocks, but it worked for a feature photo for tomorrow’s paper. I made the shot with a 300 2.8 and a 2X extender on a Canon 1D MkII. The sun was in and out so I had to be patient for some sun to highlight the seals faces against the dark background.
If the weather holds I hope to get some slow shutter shots of an area stream. The water is high after last weeks rain; maybe I’ll get lucky with some ice.
The newly formed Duxbury Camera Club has asked me to come and speak, which I will do once I work out my schedule. (Plymouth folks I have not forgotten you)
