Waterfowl Hunting Winner
For the past five years, the Harrison family has ventured to western Manitoba to hunt waterfowl. Cheryl Harrison has become the official trip photographer. "It's a new hobby, actually," she says. "I'm going to school to learn more about photography. It's been a nice addition to our hunting trips."
While her husband Rick, son Duke, and daughter Ella were set up to hunt divers out of a boat blind on the lakeshore, Cheryl positioned herself in a stand of natural vegetation, camera in hand. "That flock of bluebills was enormous," she says. "From when the flight started until all the ducks passed it was well over a minute. We had never seen anything like that before. Everyone was really excited."
Cheryl shot dozens of frames to preserve the moment. "When I photograph a hunt, we get to go back and relive the experience over and over," she says. "Plus, they like having me with them. It's nice to have the whole family together doing something that we all enjoy."
