The pretty harbor view at blue hour.

Early Meeting Someone....What Shall I Do ?

Barred Owl

Guilford County, NC, USA

January 30, 2017

Increased the ISO a little to keep the exposure shorter with the boats.

Late day just after sunset in Bar Harbor, Maine. Extended the shutter a little here to smooth out the reflection.

Seeing this Barred Owl for the first time in the wild was the absolute highlight of this trip to Vancouver Island. I saw "something" fly and then saw robins bothering him. He sat patiently for a few minutes allowing me to get this shot.

The 'Tiger Shark' red vessel there looked great under the colorful clouds and the start of Blue Hour as the sun had set.

Here is a capture taken in Bar Harbor, Maine with some neat clouds around after sunset.

This was a great bar at Guarda do Embaú, SC, Brazil.


The owner and his family kept the bar for 25 years without electric energy, still the beer was always cold and they had fresh fish.


They were obligated to close it due to some political/environmental issues.


The stars are out of focus, which I don't like, but at the time I had no way to keep the shutter longer than 30 secs.

One year anniversary from the trip to Maine ... here is what the sunset looked like a year ago up in Bar Harbor, Maine ... great spot to stay when you visit Acadia National Park.


My wife was able to shop while I walked around taking sunset shots there at the marina area ... best of both worlds in one location ;)

The beautiful owl has been in a local park in Calgary, Alberta for several weeks and has become quite a celebrity (when he chooses to be visible)! I got some great views and have many shots to go through. I like the soft light and pose in this photo.


Thank you. Your visit and comments are very much appreciated.

The Barred Owl’s hooting call, “Who cooks for you? Who cooks for you-all?” is a classic sound of old forests and treed swamps. But this attractive owl, with soulful brown eyes and brown-and-white-striped plumage, can also pass completely unnoticed as it flies noiselessly through the dense canopy or snoozes on a tree limb. Originally a bird of the east, during the twentieth century it spread through the Pacific Northwest and southward into California.

Pretty late sunset colors on the clouds over the harbor.

Bar-tailed Godwit on Titchwell beach, Norfolk.

From a year ago, here is another wide view from that fabulous sunset in Bar Harbor. I liked this comp that looked away from the brighter part of the sky and towards the area that was still under some thunder clouds.

Bar on MSC Fantasia

Of all the photos taking that day the one with her eyes shut is my favorite.

Barred for life...

A place I have wanted to see for a long time. A wonderful day out meeting old friends again and making new ones. With Mars Lander, Miss Lightyear and Skankypants :)

I didn't know that they have feathers on their eyelids!

Another wet Wednesday sunrise outing with friend and fellow flickr photographer Paul Hollins - this time to Bar Beach, NSW; Australia.

Not much sun to see this morning - this taken under the umbrella!!!!

At least nature's diffuser made exposure a little easier + helped show off the contrasting colors!!!

Have a great day and week - hope you like this one!!!

The Ria Formosa has a thriving population of waders, many of which are also found in the UK. However, from a photography point of view they are much better lit!


This is a bar-tailed godwit feeding on the inland side of the Praia de Faro, part of the barrier between the Ria Formosa and the Atlantic.

Here is a single capture taken at Bar Harbor Maine back in 2012 during our trip to New England. It was a stunning sunset. Below is an originally posted version, but I revisited this one with slightly warmer white balance as well as adding a gradient to the sky within Lightroom that allowed me to tweak down the highlights and up the shadows just a bit to make the clouds not as menacing ... I wanted to create a warm inviting atmosphere compared to the cooler original.

Should be soon that the owls return. This barred owl was photographed last year at Colleyville Nature Center, Texas, USA, May 2016

The southern end of Bar Beach is usually all sand but with all the bad weather we have had lately the sand is all but gone and has exposed an amazing amount of rock that a lot of us have never seen before. I'll be heading back here a few more times that's for sure!

The Barred Owl stayed tucked into the trees, where it remained most of the day. That was Ok, at least I got to see it.

Another one from yesterday at Bar Beach with a few of the Sundancers.

............tan gratos para conversar..............

Bar -400 gots its name because it is located 400 meters below sea level. Luckily, as you can see, it isn't underwater as the Dead Sea is even some meters below it. It is probably the lowest bar in the world.

One more shot of these Barred Owls. I rarely get the opportunity to photograph a pair.

One of my favorite places - Bar Harbor, Maine.

This owl was perched over an open expanse of snow of which we have had much of lately. The light was beginning to fade and I had to process this quite a bit in LR. It was taken from the car and it did not seem to mind us. It kept searching below for something to pounce on i assume.


The barred owl (Strix varia) is a large typical owl native to North America. Best known as the hoot owl for its distinctive call, it goes by many other names, including eight hooter, rain owl, wood owl, and striped owl.The adult is 40–63 cm (16–25 in) long with a 96–125 cm (38–49 in) wingspan. Weight in this species is 500 to 1,050 g (1.10 to 2.31 lb). It has a pale face with dark rings around the eyes, a yellow beak and brown eyes. It is the only typical owl of the eastern United States which has brown eyes; all others have yellow eyes. The upper parts are mottled gray-brown. The underparts are light with markings; the chest is barred horizontally while the belly is streaked vertically (hence its name "barred owl"). The legs and feet are covered in feathers up to the talons. The head is round and lacks ear tufts. [Wikipedia]

Unexpected surprise this afternoon. This male is not shy, but still stays behind the pines. I'm hoping eventually he'll land in the top of the pines like his parents used to do.
