Nature in My Backyard

We moved to Cochrane in August of 2014.  A big part of the decision to move to the Riviera neighborhood was the Nature Reserve located in our backyard and the Bow River out front! The Nature Reserve is filled with birds and it inspired me to pull out my camera!  It  didn’t hurt that the neighbors had a bird feeder… making a great starting point for trying to capture these fast little friends with my lens!  I had never seen so many types of birds in one location!   Along with the birds came deer, moose, fox, cougars (I have been told) and coyotes!  I am excited to share the 2016 collection of “Nature in My Backyard”, a snapshot of my photography adventures in the Cochrane area!IMG_1111


The 2016 “Nature in My Backyard” Collection is displayed in the Gallery!     I created a collection of 5 x 7 cards to showcase our wildlife neighbours!  The front of each card has a full color photograph featuring one of my top 10 special moments that made it into the “Nature in My Backyard” card collection this year!   On the back or each card is a second photograph, along with the story about where the photo was taken and a brief bio.
