Rainfall on Ocean

This is a shot of Waikiki Beach in Oahu, Hawaii.  Over the ocean there are storm clouds in the sky and from the bottom, you can see how the rain has started on the ocean.  It was very difficult to get any photos as these beaches are almost always full of people swimming and riding the surf.  For once, I was able to capture it relatively quiet of people and in the pristine beauty of nature itself.  I have always enjoyed seeing rain from a distance.  On the prairies you can see the rain storm coming from far away.

Golden Eagle Head

I took this photo of the Golden Eagle near Lake Winnipeg.  I also saw and took photos of Bald Eagles.  Their range of living is 200 km2 (77 sq mi) based on what Wikipedia says.  This is quite a big territory but not if you are a flying eagle that soars across the skies with ease.  They have a partial migration.  If they are further north, they usually migrate when living at a latitude of 60 degrees north and shorter migrations if they are at the 50 degree latitude.  If you take the location of Gimli, Manitoba they are at 50.6667° N, 97.0500° W.  And if you are at Winnipeg, Manitoba the near center of Canada it is 49.8994° N, 97.1392° W.   These beautiful yet hardy birds will only do a partial migration during the cold months of winter.

Blue Mountains

Blue skies, blue mountains, blue borders it all.  These are the incredible Rocky Mountains found in Alberta and British Columbia, Canada.  They are stoic and ever-lasting in their beauty as they grace the Canadian landscape.  Wisps of gentle white clouds linger along the mountain peaks.  At the base you can see the coniferous trees growing and yet on top you see the white snow and ice.  I hope you enjoy this image as much as I enjoyed being in their presence and taking their photographs.
