// "Seeing is believing. But that's not the end of it. Believing often leads to caring, and caring can grow into action. " // These great words from a book I am reading, really hit home and inspired me this morning.

I was watching this Hairy Woodpecker in a tree this afternoon and I literally asked it out loud if it likes its picture being taken, and then it flew to this stump.. I think it answered my question. // Really happy // with how this image turned out , I did not make a single editing adjustment, something I am going to try to do more often to keep my images as pure as I can ( but sometimes you just have to tweak some photos to get the full effect of an image right?) I'm also going to be posting a few more images a day, I'm starting to get back stocked with photos that I want to get out there so at the " one a day " rate I'm going to be forever getting my new material out there. Hope you enjoy , 😀 and make sure to follow along @r.macquaie_photo

// Before the rain // The sky looked so amazing this morning, the clouds were purple. I was on my morning walk with my little one when I snapped this image.I told myself I'd go back here during her nap time and take some more , but not long after shot was taken the colour disappeared and the sky was just grey, glad I managed to capture this moment when I did.

"We're poisoning the land, we're poisoning the animals, and I truly believe we are poisoning ourselves." - Jane Goodall @janegoodallinst. // PLASTIC EARTH // There has been 8.3 billion tonnes of plastic produced since the 1950s. Of the 8.3 billion, 6.3 billion has already become useless waste and over half of the total amount of plastic ever made, has been made in the last 15 years. | Could you be doing a better job at reducing your use of plastics down? It's something I've been more conscious of as of latey but still find it very difficult at times to really reduce, especially with raising a family. When I go to the grocery store it just seems that everything is packaged in crazy amounts of plastic and I don't really have the time to dig around looking for better options, or to drive from store to store, it's like there is no escape. I think it should be up to the manufacturers to be finding better alternatives for packaging their products. What's the answer? I would like to know your thoughts on this global issue in the comments section below and don't be shy! . // I shot this image at the final resting place of our garbage, where it is baled and buried into the earth . In Canada about 200 million pounds of garbage is created everyday // My image was Inspired by @natgeo @yamashitaphoto lastest images with all the colours and contrast in downtown New York & Hong Kong ( with my weird twist of course ) | Follow along @r.macquaie_photo ⬆️⬆️⬆️ Check out the link in my Bio

// My goal // for this weekend was Eagles. I went out on Saturday and again today on the search for an Eagle , I spotted one both times .. well I spotted one and my assignment assistant / little brother, Jamie MacQuarrie spotted one but I could not get the shot. I ended up getting a few images that I'm pretty happy about but no eagles. On my drive home today I was thinking to myself where would I get my eagle shot, and then I remembered a place I've visited in the past and thought I might as well check it out, and sure enough I found my eagles .. I am not happy with this shot, so I am going to go back this week and get the shot I have in mind. Stay tuned and follow along @r.macquaie_photo

// A Hairy woodpecker, taking flight // I spent yesterday afternoon exploring our property and I was in shock with all of the wildlife! I saw a juvenile bald eagle on the beach, I heard it take off and by the time I had the camera up it was quite a ways over the bay, multiple woodpeckers, smaller finches/chickadees bluejays, squirrel's, and a white mink or weasel , need to investigate further to find out exactly what it is , I'm leaning towards a mink right now. // I'm constantly hitting the road to go find places to take pictures, it was really nice to stay at home and just enjoy everything seconds from our door while the kids had their afternoon nap // follow along @r.macquaie_photo

How do you photograph one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world ? It's no easy task to find your own different unique image to what everyone else has, and just with the one lens , it can make things even a little more of a challenge ( which I like ). I ended up circling the lighthouse from different distances until I found something I was happy with. I am just waiting for a clear night to go back again to see what it looks like from this point with stars in the sky. Follow along @r.macquaie_photo

// They are called Great Grandmothers for a reason //.My oldest daughter visiting her great grandmothers house, which is always a very special time for me. I was fortunate enough to grow up living right beside my grandmother, and she has been a major influence in my life. Nan has taught me to hold my shirt, and that I can't pee until my water settles. ( Her lessons in patience) along with many other lessons about life that I still apply everyday. I always thought that my Nan was an angel on earth, and when I was sitting back watching her play with my daughter over the weekend, I proved my theory right with this image. The light was just right and I didn't have my camera or my phone, so this was snapped on Nans iPhone. Glad I didn't miss it.

Comment from Rob MacQuarrie:


Throwback Thursday: I started competitive swimming when I was 11 or 12. One of the things I love most about swimming is you get what you give, and the results are a total reflection of the work you put in. There are a lot of sports where you can have a bad day and still win the game, swimming is not one. I didn't end up taking any of my scholarship opportunities beacuse at the time I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life ( who really does at 17) but I am very greatful for all the life lessons swimming gave me over the years, and for the confidence it has instilled in me.

// Image III // There were 3 things I really wanted to capture in the making of this image. 1) The reflection on the shallow water of the red light coming from the lighthouse. 2) The movement of the clouds, it was really cold and windy and I wanted to make sure the photo captured that movement. 3) My favourite constellation, Orion. In Greek mythology it is said that Orion is the son of Poseidon, god of the sea. Follow along @r.macquaie_photo

A Poinsettia plant, a familiar plant to be seen in many households and commerical spaces this time of year. The species is indigenous to Mexico, the Aztecs used the plant to produce red dye and as an antipyretic ( to reduce fever) and was introduced to North America in 1825 by a man named Joel Roberts Poinsett, the 15th United States Secretary of War. We visited Forest Glen Greenhouses Ltd this past weekend, located just outside of Brookfield, Nova Scotia where the site of 60,000+ Poinsettias is really quite something to be had. Talk about seeing red! 🌺 *If you know anyone looking for a photographer to take images of a commerical space, or for a social media page/website, please let me know, I would love to be of assistance.
