|Intro:||I was really introduced to photography when I was 20 when I had a chance for one day to take shots with a real camera equiped with a real zoom. I then realize the mistake I have made 2 years earlier when I bought my first auto-focus Yashica in Japan... everybody can make mistake. Then before a trip in Europe I bought my first real camera, a SLR Yashica, then when this one was stolen I bought a SLR Canon Rebel and then switch to the Digital Canon Rebel in 2004.|
As I have opportunities to travel, I would like to share with you the different pictures I have taken in the several countries I have visited so far. I like to take night pictures, sport pictures and animals.
Here I will mostly post my animal & landscape pix.
Visit me at TrekLens for my pix that are not related to a place in particular and at TrekEarth for my travel pix.
UPDATE>...... WHERE TREKNATURE CAN BRING YOU..........
I have been approached by the art director of Utah's Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City, Utah to provide some of my pictures that will be used in a new Asian Highlands exhibit that is schedule to open on June 15th. They are working on the interpretive aspect for this exhibit. They will be putting in three 40" LCD touch screens to help our visitors access information about Amur tigers, Amur leopards and snow leopards. In one area they will be discussing the similiarities between Utah and the Amur region where these big cats come from. They will discuss the similar roles of cougars in Utah and the big cats in Asia.
The art director was looking for an image of a cougar in the snow and came across this cougar photo laying on a rock in the snow and asked me for the possibility to use some of my pictures. They would of course give credit to me with the photo.
In that case I was proud that some of my pictures kept the attention and I am glad to be part of such an educational project.
So if you end up to have a chance this summer to go and see the exhibit, you may see my cougar picture as they selected this one:
Selected pic for exhibit at Hogle Zoo
The picture was taken at the Zoo of St-Félicien in the superb region of Lac St-Jean in Quebec to get some shots of North American species living in their natural habits.
I went to see my pictures at the Hogle Zoo, you can see the final result here:
