Today on the Presumpscot River

Presumpscot River

Six Cormorants and a Loon

I’ve been looking for interesting places to photograph near my home. I found this place quite nearby that’s pretty quiet. I did a walk through with my 35mm camera and 135mm lens, using Ilford 100 film, and found some Cormorants, a Loon, and an Osprey. Since birds are territorial, I’m going back tomorrow with my big digital

lens to photograph the Osprey. They only eat fish and are the only raptor to dive underwater to catch their prey.  Eagles and others only skim fish off the surface. Maybe I’ll be fortunate enough to get a diving/launching shot. My digital camera is great for action since it can shoot 10 frames per second. The rest is up to the photographer.

Let’s see what happens!

I'm a retired medical sociologist from the University of Rochester. Climate change is one of the two great challenges facing humanity (the other is nuclear weapons). In writing about the impact of climate change I read reputable books and articles on the topic. So when I make statements about climate change you will see a link taking you to the scientific source(s) of the information I provide. As for my independently published photobooks, each has gone through several layers of editing and peer review for both readability and accuracy. This is not to say that everything I say is accurate. Even the New York Times makes mistakes. So, if you find something that is factually incorrect, let me know. I hope you find reading my blog a positive experience. If you do, please encourage your family and friends to have a look. You can find photos from my other photo work by clicking on the My SmugMug Gallery tab, above. Best wishes, -Steve
