SNOWY OWL

On the day after Valentine’s Day I made little to trip to the beach and came across this Snowy Owl. I grabbed a couple of shots. I am not a wildlife photographer, but I’ll take a few photos when the opportunity shows it self.

Long Tailed Duck

I was in Sag Harbor and spied this small flock of about ten ducks. They were ¬†a species I hadn’t seen around here before. I sat on the Village Wharf and waited for them to get within camera range and took a few photos. I looked up the ducks and found out they were Long Tailed Ducks which come down from Northern Canada to winter over.

Flying Point

In the evenings I have been running down to Flying Point Beach and Mecox Bay to catch the evening light and play with my new Fujifilm X-E2 camera. I am enjoying shooting with the camera. The feel is like a traditional film rangefinder camera. The lens and sensor produce sharp images with good contrast and like Fuji films snappy rich colors. The camera has a panoramic feature that stitches several images together in the camera. In principle it is similar to the feature in I-phones.  Shooting in manual exposure and focus provides more consistent and better images in the panoramic mode. I hope you enjoy the photos.
