An Up and Coming Photographer





 I have a young 15 year old friend who is becoming quite a photographer.  His name is Jake Woodill, and he has an incredible eye for composition, as well as the patience that a good wildlife photographer needs.

Jake loves the outdoors and he will spend hours out in a kayak with his little point and shoot camera, waiting for the opportunity to shoot the perfect image of a mink along the shore, a beaver up on top of it's lodge, or these beautiful dragonflies.  It would be interesting to see what this young man could do with some sophisticated camera equipment!

I have begun a tradition of making a hardcover photo book of all of the images I have taken at the cottage for the season and I am thrilled that this year I will be able to include a page of some of Jake's work in the 2012 edition!

Thanks Jake for sharing your talent and wonderful images with me!
