LONDON, ONTARIO, CANADA. One of the things I love so much about heading out into the field each day is the element of the unknown. In the morning I leave the house with nothing other than visions, hopes and dreams. I leave home with a blank canvas, and there is no way of telling what I will return home with at days end. That in itself makes every single day with a camera in my hand an exciting adventure of the unknown. An opportunity to create something brand new that no other person can or will ever replicate. No two single frames are ever the same. Working in nature, you have no control over what you might see or not see. Some days are a let-down, other days are full of surprises and amazing moments. No matter what, every day has the potential for special, rare or amazing moments. Sometimes it’s something simple, other days it’s the light, perhaps it’s a rarely seen moment or species. The more time you spend in the wild the great your chances are of seeing rare and wonderful moments. All of these things are elements of why I love what I do. The element of the unknown and the potential to witness and create something special. Other days you head out with the hope and anticipation of seeing and capturing a specific species. In this case, it was a week when I set out to capture beautiful fall imagery of a buck in rutting season. However, what I came home with instead were images of this great blue heron. A moment in time that had I not been there no human being would have ever seen. But through the magic of photography here I am, able to share the special moments I get to witness with all of you. Hidden away in my blind, I watched this heron land, wade around, catch some lunch and as seen here, take off to its next location. All the while, hidden away, allowing it to peacefully go about its business none the wiser to my presence. Special memories for myself and a new ‘canvas’ which at the start of my day did not exist. Making it even more special, it was all just steps away from home in my local ravine I grew up spending so much time in with my camera.
