We hope everyone has or is still enjoying their Easter long weekend, we sure did! After a few days away from The Hollow ourselves, we’re happy to be back here at our blog today. We’ve got a few images to share with you of my foray into Beacon Hill Park the other day, here in Victoria BC. I went specifically to test and learn about our new 50mm prime lens. We have a few new images of wildlife and an artifact in the park to share, so let’s get started!
This lil’ feller let me get real close to him, after a fashion. I kept inching closer and closer, grabbing the odd shot as I went, and this was the closest image I could grab before he got up all indignant like and waddled away from me. Imagine that, a duck scared of a Toad.
More ducks. This pair is waiting for spring, they look real cold to me. We’ve had a pretty cold and damp winter here, so everyone is very ready for spring now. Including this pair of cold ducks.
For some unbeknown reason this duck thought I was a Toad with a grill or something. He looked real worried. Needless to say, I had no grill, the duck is fine. I way prefer BBQ fly any day of the week, myself.
This is a commemorative engraved stone in the park. This shot really shows off the lovely focal depth and crisp, sharp clarity you can get with a good 50mm prime lens. I have no clue as to who this fellow is, but he sure made an impression on Victorians; there aren’t many of these types of artifacts in the park, so suffice it to say that George Fraser was an integral part of the formation and maintenance of Beacon Hill Park. Three cheers for George!!
Many thanks for your visit today, we sure do appreciate that! Please feel free to leave us some comments as we love to hear from our visitors!
