It has been a long time since I updated so here goes.

I have always believed in helping out, giving back as it were. So I decided to help out with a small group on DA approving art submissions. That group is Art-Addicts, check it out, there is a lot of great stuff in there, a little something for everyone.

I picked up a new camera after Christmas, Canon 70D, I read a lot of reviews on it and was torn between that one and the the tried and true 7D. I really like it so far, the focus system is pretty much taken right out of the 7D, but the live view focus is new and quite an improvement. There are a ton of features on it I can't wait to try out. I have also started shooting my photos in raw format and using Lightroom 5 for processing. I have a lot to learn about Lightroom but so far I like what I see.

Birding this winter for me has suffered on two fronts, I have less free time due to work and this winter there seems to be a scarcity of the smaller birds, redpolls, siskens etc. Lots of eagles, hawks and owls but the smaller birds seem to have gone elsewhere. I am hoping to do a trip in May either to Texas (Aransas National Wildlife Refuge) or Point Pelee  in Ontario for spring migration. I am told both are amazing for birds so we will see what happens.
