    I observed three red fox kits for about an hour one early morning. While mother and the kits were aware of our presence, the kits continued to romp around, paying little attention to us. I captured this intimate moment of mom and one of the kits before it dashed away to chase its other siblings once again. I caught this image with the equivalent of a 630mm lens fitted to a tripod-mounted camera (300mm lens with a 1.4 teleconverter on a cropped sensor). You don't always need the fastest and most expensive lenses. I find this combination very flexible albeit a little slower than the fastest lenses.

    It's that time of year again when fog becomes a common occurrence in early morning. Fog is a stratus cloud that forms on or near the ground. One type of fog, 'radiation fog', is common in the mornings after heat has radiated into the atmosphere during the night. It normally dissipates after sunrise, often quickly if the wind picks up. It can be a magical time. 'Trees in fog' was captured on the North Shore of Lake Superior.

    A long exposure enables the crashing waves of Lake Winnipeg to soften as the last light of the setting sun casts a warm glow. A variable neutral density filter was useful in enhancing the sense of motion.

    When it's really windy outside, it's time to head out to Lake Winnipeg and capture waves crashing on the shoreline, especially beautiful at sunset. Hillside Beach. Manitoba

    My daughter called me from the Whiteshell last night to inform me that the northern lights were displaying. The auroras came in spurts but, for about an hour and a half, they were beautiful to see. I crawled into bed at 3 AM!
