Thought I would post a few pics from Canyon Ferry a couple weeks back and other spots nearby. Lately I’ve been spending more time scouting around the north side of the lake and surprisingly, there is always something to photograph if you look hard enough. The wildlife around the lake includes Mule Deer, Mountain Goats, Big Horn Sheep, Pronghorns and an array of waterfowl.
This time of year it can be tough to be inspired when things get gray and cold, but if you get out there and really start exploring you will usually run across something worthwhile to photograph.
But it does help to go where the action is and planning your photography accordingly can deliver more exciting and dramatic images. I usually find that bodies of water during the winter are good places to check out as not only do they provide interesting subjects for landscape photos, but being a source of survival for wildlife, you will find them congregating nearby.

Nice, I like the ducks. I photographed a spike mule deer rubbing on a tree at Canyon Ferry a couple of weeks ago.
