Foto Friday – One of my favorites – Great Blue Heron

This is one of my favorite photos…luck + great light + a little bit of skill came together at once to get this beautiful photo.

Great Blue Heron Captured on Canon 7D with Canon 400mm 5.6 L at Bob Woodruff Park, Plano TX.

Foto Friday – Bluebird at Zion National Park

Tracie and I went to Zion in April…what a beautiful place to visit.

Here’s a photo of a Bluebird that I got while out there. Taken in Zion National Park near the Zion Lodge. Captured with Canon 7D and Canon 400mm 5.6 L sitting on my Induro CT314.

Foto Friday (new series) – Antelope Slot Canyon

I’m starting a new series here that has nothing to do with Technology, Strategy, People or Projects. I’m calling this new series Foto Friday and I plan to share  a photo that I’ve taken with you.

With this new series, I want to share another passion of mine – Photography.

If you don’t know, I’m a bit of an amatuer photographer and run another blog focused on photography called Photography Minute. Over on that blog, I review cameras & lensesreview equipment, share photos and just generally talk about photography.

The idea behind Foto Friday isn’t to republish what I’m doing over at Photography Minute but to just take a second and share one of my favorite photos with you.  Hopefully you’ll enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy sharing them.

Now…on to the Foto (er…photo…you know what i mean)…future Foto Friday’s will be a basic description of the photo and the photo.

Upper Antelope Slot Canyon in Page Arizona.

This is a wonderful place on the Navajo Indian Reservation…you’ve got to check it out. If you do, definitely look into using Antelope Canyon Tours for the tour.

Am I a professional Photographer now?

Love my Canon 5D & 100-400mm L lens

Spent a few minutes outside shooting some pictures of our ducks, geese and other birds using my new

Canon 5D and Canon 100-400mm lens.  Below is one of the pictures…click through to see a few shots.  The 5D isn’t really new…its a hand-me-down from my wife who recently got the Canon 5D Mark II…she won’t let me touch the Mark II 🙂
