Despite the stalwart support of a small core of regulars who's tenacity leaves me in awe, posts on this site are now down to 7% of their peak number and the trend is continually declining. I will therefore be closing this site at the end of October.


However, I have recreated OPN as a Google+ community - join now if you want to carry on being a part of the Outdoor Photographer's Network!

Pine Marten

Wildlife 06 Oct 2014 by David Whitaker
Over the past few months I have been trying to get pictures of the current generation of local Pine Martens in daylight with little success. In the end I have resorted to night time photography using flash on a set up outside the backdoor. A bit stage managed? Probably.      ...

I took this image on the top of a local mountain here in SE British Columbia.  Approximately 6000 feet elevation.  Amazing how clear the skies get with no light pollution.  The amber glow is from a flashing road sign.      20 seconds, f/2.8, ISO 3200

The stingray is wild of course but they get fed when the boats come into the boat ramp and the catch is cleaned.  Its either a Black or a Smooth Stingray.  As you can see they get quite tame.

This was one wierd place. A totally deserted beach with driftwood structures set up as if waiting for the madding crowd. The tide goes under and through the shelters and there were childrens swings just in the water. In somewhat ominous fashion what appears to be a shark lookout tower is in the f...
