Golden eagle Hide and Seek

An image photographed with one of my first digital cameras.

It was a 10.1 megapixel camera Canon 400D, the lens is a 300 2.8L.FD. For over 20 years ago I bought this lens. Problems arose when Canon changed the system from the FD to Eos. There I was with a 300 2.8 but the wrong socket. I have a friend who rebuild the converters with a new clutch and shortened down the conv. 1.4 and 2x so it is possible to focus out to infinity as the Eos camera bodies are about 1mm thinner. I now use Canon's new EF 300/2,8L IS USM. I have retouched a small splinter of wood from the eye.

Feelings in a frozen Swamp

Feelings in a frozen Swamphttp://vimeo.com/37939331
"As guest of Conny Lundstrom I had the priviledge to stay in his hide in a frozen swamp in Northern Sweden for 5 days. Beautiful light, a goshawk, golden eagles, (black) woodpeckers and an intense feeling of oneness, a paradise in the snow (and -20C)"
