End of the day for these many Snow Geese at the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge. Lots & lots of them there at this time of year.

The Reading Dude

The Reading Dude, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

I’ve got to say that sometimes walking around with a camera can be a wonderful experience. Today I met this guy who’s real name I can’t remember (I am so bad with names) but he said he was known as the “Reading Dude”. He even showed me a little art piece on his phone with him and a number of books. Seemed like a really interesting guy. Wish I would have had more time to talk with him. Oh well, maybe we’ll meet again.

Tom at the Bridge

Ran into my friend Tom at the Sundial Bridge the other day. I see Tom every year at the Whiskeytown Regatta on Memorial Day Weekend. If I photograph the Regatta again it will be the 4th year. The last couple of years the weather has not been ideal for sailing. Let’s hope this year rocks.

Storm a Comin’?

Storm a Comin’?, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Well it looks promising here in California today. At least it did somewhat. They’ve been talking maybe an inch of rain this week. I just looked at the current forecast and not surprisingly the forecast has changed and it seems way less likely now. When will the drought end? Soon we all hope.

Into the Sun

Went to Sacramento today with some friends and we decided to stop at the Sacramento NWR on the way back. Almost a perfect time too. It would have been nice to have arrived a bit earlier and to have brought my 70-200mm but we work with what we have. I am happy with this image of the Snow Geese flying across the sunset. A beautiful site to behold.

Radio Transmission

Radio Transmission, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

A few of us (Duane here included) were out the other day working with a couple of 600EX-RT Speedlites and ST-E3-RT Transmitters. These guys are so cool but there are also a bit complicated as they are capable of doing so much. It will take a bit to figure out all the modes and settings possible but we’ll get it. I do have an advantage with my 5D MKIII over the 7D. I can access the settings of the flash on the LCD of my camera which is a bit easier to read. But still, the new Speedlites and Transmitters are quite powerful and intuitive once you get it.

Burning Bush

Sometimes I am out and see something that reminds me why they call it the “golden hour”. This bush at the Sundial Bridge really lit up just before the sun set last night.

Running Up the Wall

Running Up the Wall, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

A few of us were out at the Sundial this afternoon working with the great new Canon flash equipment. I saw this young man running (almost vertically) up this part of the bridge. He made it to the top and took a seat up there too.

Can’t help myself. Just had to do one more of these great tree trunks and branches. I’m heading out shooting tomorrow afternoon so maybe I can actually get some new material. Hope so!

Winter Tree

Winter Tree, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

It’s no secret that I love trees and especially in the winter when the branches are bare. I usually prefer the whole tree but the branches here just cried out to me.
