So one of the best parts, photo-opportunity-wise, of a trip to Thunder Bay is the deer.
They are quite easy to find.
And with a few apples, quite easy to coax into modelling for you.
A few images of my furry models are up in the mammalia gallery.

You just can't go to Thunder Bay without a stop at the Hoito...

I've added the Hoito and a couple other locals to the Canadian Landmarks gallery.

Celebration calls for...

...a new lens.
So in celebration of accepting a position with a new company, which will involve frequent trips to West Africa, I went out in search of a nice telephoto lens.
And I had a few characteristics in mind:
1) It had to be as light as possible since I'd be lugging it around in my backpack with all my other things.
2) It had to be as small as possible - see 1)
3) I wanted it to reach as far as possible. I already have a 300mm and a 1.4 extender, giving me 420mm of reach, so I was hoping for something longer.
4) A zoom would be better than a prime since it would lower the risk of missing a photo op while spending time changing lenses.
5) Image stability would be an added bonus since I'd like to take shots without a mono or tripod.
With all that in mind, I found what I was looking for.
I found the Sigma APO 150mm - 500mm F5-6.3 OS.

For Christmas we travelled back to Thunder Bay and I managed to snap a few pictures of the falls, the marina, the Hoito and some deer.

I'm a little busy with the day job but at some point, I'm hoping to edit them and a post a few up here on the site.
