Fledgling Photographer Follows My Finley Footsteps
Saturday 3 August 2013 — Category: Outings
an early-morning outing to Finley Refuge, and lamented the fact that I didn’t see as many animals as I had expected I would at a wildlife refuge. But I still managed to get some nice landscape shots, as well as a few decent photos of a heron and a ladybug, as you can see in the Finley Refuge 2013 album.
Last evening my wife Catherine and her friend Diane went for a couple-of-hours' walk at the Finley National Wildlife Refuge, south of Corvallis. Even though she had been there numerous times, I encourged her to take her Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX20V camera and try to see the place through fresh eyes.
Catherine took only nine photos between 7:30 and 8:30, but four of them were good enough to be added to the Finley Refuge 2013 album. To start viewing her first picture, click on the photo to the right. Not only did she get a couple of good shots of a Bald Eagle — sitting on the same dead tree that I took some photos of — but she also managed to get a picture of the elusive Roosevelt elk which ran away from me at 5:30 AM before I could take a photo of them — some people have all the luck!
I’m proud of the photos my wife took, and I congratulate the fledgling photographer as she follows in my footsteps at Finley Refuge!
