The Sweet 35

I love my Lensbaby Sweet 35.  I have owned the lensbaby since the very first version.  When they changed up the design with the composer, I had thought about getting one, but I was still quite happy using my version 2.0 copy.  Then recently when I found out about the Sweet 35 optic with built in aperture - I knew that I had to get one.  This image was captured in January of 2013 in the countryside of Ontario, Canada.

Photographing Wolves

For those of you who know me well, you know that I spend a lot of time at Haliburton Forest, and the Wolf Centre.  I invest a lot of time in watching and photographing the wolves, because you really never know what is going to happen.  Wolves being a wild creature of nature can go from sleeping one moment, to playful the next.  The wolves are a joy to watch, and I have learned so much about wolves in the past 9 years of photographing them.  This image was of Manitou who died several years ago now, but he will always be one of my favourite.  I was inspired by a photograph I saw of a wolf close-up on the cover of B&W magazine.  I had to come up with my own version, and Manitou was the perfect subject.  Buy your own fine art print of Manitou now, and proudly display him in your home or office for a special price.  Please contact me for more details.  lxdesign@rogers.com    David Sweeney Photography.

RIP Granite

In memory of Granite, the Alpha female at the Haliburton Forest & Wildlife Reserve Wolf Centre who was recently found wounded on the side of a road not too far away from the centre.  She was brought back, and given emergency care, however her wounds and the stress was too great, and she passed away this past week.  May her soul rest in heaven along with her brothers and sisters and family mates.
