Angus and Fergus enjoying a mild winter day. Fergus is much larger than Angus already, and alot slower as you can see. It took a great deal of patience to get this photo, and a lot of deletions. I shoot mainly with the Canon 5D Mark II and as great as this camera is, it is not a true action or sports body, but with good technique the servo tracking is more then capable of capturing action sequences. The problem then comes down to composition and the fact that 99% of the facial expressions and leg positions of these two goofballs don’t work out, but in the end a few usually do.
On a recent trip to Long Beach on the west coast of Vancouver Island, we headed out in the morning to photograph the surfer’s that the beach is renowned for. But, what often happens, a heavy fog moved in and changed everything, probably for the better in this case. The ordinary became the extraordinary, when we came across this very cute little girl with her mother and dog, who made the most of their visit to the Pacific Ocean beach.
