2015-11-29: What I’ve seen this week

Cold temperatures and sunny skies this week have made for a some beautiful walks.  I was delighted Tuesday to see a pileated woodpecker for the first time in a few years; I was even happier when it decided to fly from the thicker trees to an electrical post, and perch in the sunlight long enough for me to take a few photos.

I hope you enjoy my selections from this week – have a great evening!

There was a light breeze this morning blowing snow and frost off the roofs and tree branches, and when you looked into the sun, the sky was glittering. I captured a little of it, but trying to freeze that in time really didn’t do the moment justice. 1/800sec, f5.6, ISO 900

I took a quick trip to Vancouver this weekend; this was a snap out the window with my cellphone.

The rising sun illuminating the wingtips of a passing crow.

I absolutely love the light on the underside of the crow’s wing. 1/500sec, f6.3, ISO 500

A bit cluttered with all the components and wires, but it does give a better ideal of this woodpecker’s size (around the size of a crow).

I didn’t zoom out in time, and cut off the wings, but I included this anyways because I think the sunlight coming through the wingtips is just too beautiful not to share.
