As of yesterday i pre-ordered my new Canon 7D Mark ii
From what I've read online this camera is a game changer. With new better than ever ISO capabilities, 10 fps, All new auto focussing system and improved sensor this camera should give the Canon 1-DX a run for its money. The camera should be in my hands early November at the latest.
Excited to say the least !

Autumn in Newfoundland is short and unpredictable at best from a photography prospective. This year it seems October has been abnormally warm with more sun than rain. I have been getting out to shoot as much as possible. I know from other years that the beautiful colours of fall go as quickly as they appear.
On both October 4th and 8th I headed down to Long Beach which is located along the Cape Race road to photograph some late season shorebirds. The large concentrations of rotting kelp are covered with small flies which the birds are feeding on. I was able to photograph the following species:
Also I got some brief looks at a few Merlin's and one Northern Harrier. RIght as I was heading back to the car this Mourning Dove landed on the road...
Over the next few weeks there is supposed to be some very interesting weather systems on the move. One of them may bring european vagrants but we will have to wait and see how it plays out. In the mean time I've been trying to get out and capture more landscape images. One of my first locations i had to make sure i got images was of course Cape Spear!
More to come next week!
