Well, the best I can say about 2020 is that it will be over in a few days (Edit – that sounds pretty negative. In reality, some wonderful things happened this year. Top of the list is that Jenny and I got engaged back in February. I had an excellent 40th birthday party, travelled to San Francisco and hiked at Big Basin Redwoods, had some some fun and safe distanced hangouts with family and friends, saw over 100 species of birds in Waterloo region, and the list goes on …)
As I posted last time, I get a lot of my photographic inspiration from travel. With that restricted I’m still happy to have had a decent year, photographically speaking. I spent many hours walking local trails, binoculars in one hand and camera in the other. I picked up the film cameras again, and have a few rolls waiting to get developed.
I finally admitted that I was a birder and bought a Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary lens. Within the first couple of weeks I got some shots that would never have been possible without the reach, and that I would be proud to hang on the wall.
Here are a few of my favourites of the year, in no particular order.
