In my Facebook introduction to my last post, Workflow: A Process of Evolution, I wrote that over 3,000 readers had chosen to subscribe to my blog. In that introduction I set a goal of attaining 5,000 subscribers by the end of 2017.
Well, that turned out to be a ‘not so fast’ moment. In an effort to monitor whether my blog post notifications were reaching their destinations I asked several friends to let me know if they were receiving their notifications. In short, “They weren’t!”
So, I entered the world of ‘techie talk’ to figure out why this was occurring. After many hours of online conversations with techies at my hosting company, Site Ground and watching countless You Tube videos I think I might have it figured out. It seems that the outgoing server could not handle the volume of emails that I was sending out so blocked me. Hopefully my ‘fix’ will work. Time will tell.

The Great Blue Heron at the Fascieux Creek Wetland in the lower Mission area of Kelowna, B.C. has been the subject of my photography for the last week or so. The weather has been very cold and lately with lots of snow.
Breaking with his good weather routine, the heron seems to spend a lot of time in and around the creek. I suspect that food may be more plentiful there and certainly it is more sheltered than other locations closer to the lake. Ideal for me and my camera.
The colouring and texture of the heron’s feathers are so beautiful. My hope is that the images I make of this heron show his beauty as well as the stoic personality he seems to exude.
It won’t be too long before this Great Blue Heron abandons his winter retreat. In the meantime, regardless of the weather I’ll be seeking him out with my camera.
