Mesmerizing Seagull

Gull/Goéland (Larus delawarensis) October 2011, Lac Boivin, Quebec. The late afternoon sun very nicely illuminating the scene. And, an intense and surprised look from a ring-billed gull. Un goéland à bec cerclé. Un regard intense au soeil couchant.   Nikon D700/Nikkor 70-200mm+TC20E-III @400mm f14.0, 1/800s, ISO800 Copyright Fritschi © Photographs 2000-2016

The Peony and the Wasp

Late Spring, Montreal, 2012. While dozens of peonies are being helped open with the formic acid that ants secrete. This one is being inspected by a wasp. Or perhaps just casually digesting an ant previously devoured on the next door neighbor.   Nikon D700/Nikkor 70-200mm+ TC20E-III @400mm f5.6, 1/1250s, ISO400 Copyright Fritschi © Photographs 2000-2016

Water and Ice

Montreal, 2012. A very thin sheet of ice floats on the river. I was taken by the different textures, colors and the fragility of the ice surface.   Nikon D700/Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8 @140mm f5.6, 1/1250s, ISO400 Copyright Fritschi © Photographs 2000-2014

Orsay Museum Clock

Orsay Museum Clock

Orsay Museum, Paris 2001. The old Orsay railway station became a fine arts museum in 1986. It is situated across from the Louvre on the left bank. It houses over 2,000 paintings and 600 sculptures. One can get a close up view of the large railway station clocks from inside the museum. I was quite impressed by the silhouette effect of the visitors back-lit by the sunlight coming through the glass panes of the clock. A solarization effect enhances the image.   Canons Powershot S20   Copyright Fritschi © Photographs...

Havana Fortune Teller

Old, Havana. One of the many fotune tellers. Her lace dress blends into the huge shawl pinned to the wall behind her suggesting angel wings. The cigar is a dead give-away. October 2009 Canon G9 Copyright Fritschi © Photographs 2000-2014
