Hidden Beauty in Idaho
This last week I traveled to Idaho to find some Moose instead of finding moose I was able to find a very nice area past Stites, Idaho to photograph the landscapes. For the whole trip we only saw one deer and no other wildlife. Thankfully Idaho has lots of spectacular scenery to photograph.
Tip of the Week: When going on a trip to find a certain animal don't expect to find it. Always have a backup plan.
Earlier this week I traveled up to the Blue Mountains to try and capture a great photo of an owl. I knew an area where I could find at least one. One would have been great, but there were 15 owls in this area! I stayed in the area about two hours for the owls to get used to me and not be afraid. Before I knew it, there were a few owls that would land near me and walk closer. That was an amazing experience! Then I put my arm out to let them know I was harmless, all of a sudden, a medium sized owl came out of nowhere and landed on my arm! This was the most amazing moment and I will never forget it. I wished there was someone else with me to take a picture of me with an owl on my arm. Below are some of the photos I captured. I have included an extra photo of a barn owl. This photo I captured yesterday when I traveled to a nearby town.
Fact:The Barn Owl lives all over the world. There are some interesting names they are known for, such as Silver Owl, Delicate Owl, Church Owl, and what do you think of this one, Monkey-faced Owl!
More photos below can be seen Here.
Tip of the Week: When photographing animals such as owls the best time to see them is right before dark, so in my area I see them at 8 o'clock at night. Remember to think about when they sleep and when they're awake. So about one hour before dark all the owls and some other animals start waking up to search for their meal. Good Luck Photographing!
Yesterday while out photographing, I came by a spot where there were some very nice scenic views. Below are some of the photos that I made yesterday. Horses are really great to photograph, though they can be a bit too curious and get too close to you, making it difficult to take photos of anything but close ups of their heads. If that happens you either need to be far away from them to take decent pictures, or have someone with you that can keep the horse's attention away from you.
Did you know that the Quarter Horse that you know today was called: Celebrated American Quarter Running Horses by English colonists in the 1600s? It wasn't until the 1940's that a registry was formed to preserve the breed and they now are officially called the American Quarter Horse.
Please write a comment I would love to hear all your opinions.
Tip of the Week:
The best time to do black and white photography is when its a gloomy day (cloudy but with a little sunlight).
