Weekly Photo Challenge: Careful

Bighorn Sheep

Rock Climbers

Sightings at the Canadian Rockies. Are they careful with each step? I don’t know, but these bighorn sheep certainly seem at ease and sure-footed as they move swiftly up the vertical rock face.

 

The Leap of Faith

The Leap of Faith

The muscles on their hindquarters propel them in powerful leaps that take them from ledge to ledge. OMG.

 

Watch Your Step!

Watch Your Step!

On edges or rocky promontories where it seems impossible to stand. Their sandy-colored coat provides ideal camouflage from predators … and photographers. Moreover, they are super fast when it comes to scaling sheer cliffs. So I had to be careful to get the shots right.

    A treat of shots this week. More than one shot from you 🙂 Very easy to spot the bighorn sheep though they look somewhat like the rocks. You did well there to make them stand out. They look a little like kangaroos 🙂

      It’s a pity that I could not spot the male (ram) which has the signature large, curved horns. Your pair of eyes would have been useful if you were there 😉

        Not so much, but having fun trying different modes and settings. Love the M mode which is a totally new experience to me. Still find the focusing a bit difficult, especially on close-ups.

        I started playing with M mode recently too and just discovered a super useful feature known as Focus Peaking. It makes manual focusing very accurate. Your mirrorless camera should have that feature too, so you may want to try that out.

      This was a trip to the Rockies (Mt. Robson). We went to Waterton Lakes National Park after that and I must say that it was inspired by you after reading your blog post about Waterton 🙂 Thanks!
