The tundra in my backyard

Post by Alain Cloutier » Tue Aug 29, 2017 10:30 pm

I had fun last Sunday with my grandson Logan taking macro pictures in the tundra just behind the house.
He chose subjects and I shot them. He's a little young, 4 years old, to manage the tripod and camera. :D

Here's a slideshow of it and a photo of Logan where we did it. You can see some of the Puvirnituq airport buildings on the left side of the photo.

Of course I added a nice Weiss' Courante to liven up the slideshow!

Hope you'll enjoy it!

Looking at the title I thought you were making some ironic comment about your backyard. To see it was literally true is surprising, remarkable. Its also nice to see your surroundings, to put you in some sort of context. It does look wild and cold.

Thanks for posting. :merci:
