A Video View Of The Vermilon River, Some Wetlands, and Some Wildlife.




If you have the time, some 5 minutes, take a look at the video to see some of our hiking area. There is a River sequence, a tributary wetland sequence (the east track wetland which you've seen in  stills), and a River wetland. The River is old, and meanders creating wetlands right in its own flow This is the second video, and there are plenty of errors in it. But I'm getting there I think. I prefer shooting with a view finder as opposed to a screen.Wonder why the manufactures don't offer that. I've found the 70-300mm lens is most handy mainly because of weight. The 150-500mm is just too heavy and results in too much jerky movement. I use PS Elements 11 to edit. They have a great "on video" seminar system to help train you. You can add stills and use fades to suggest movement as I've done here. The flowers are all wildflowers.

To return to Part 1 click here: Me, Boomer & The Vermilon River. I linked with Our World Tuesday, and Nature Notes.

  1. Gary, I loved it all, specially the production team.I think taking a video is a lot harder than still photos,Hugh does the videos, and I edit and put them together, very time consuming!!!you are doing wonderfully, and I'm sure Boomer is with you always.Greetings from Jean.

  4. I enjoyed your beautiful video! We have a beaver dam in a creek near our home. I am amazed how big a dam they can build and such large ponds.
