Thanks for your touching 'Au Revoir' note.
Hope your anguish and ennui go away soon and bring you back to the TN family; you are too good to be forgotten here.
Your pictures have always been great, including this one which celebrates LOVE: between mother and child.
All the best and take care.

Its a great shot and a beautiful moment you've caught here.

Hi Luc and not au revoir. I think lots of other people have come to the same conclusion but don't say bye, just come in when you can and post when you can. I have so enjoyed your fox shots series and the other wonderful images you have captured too. Here's to the wind in our hair, an elusive subject and a camera in our hands :)
PS I saw our 'own' fox cub for the first time this weekend and it was such a fantastic experience. It was much older than the cubs you captured on film but it was still brilliant to be able to watch it.

- [2006-06-12 7:41]
I think no need to say "au revoir". Maybe you should lessen the time to tn you give! But you can still keep posting and write some critiques rarely! This is my opinion of course, the decision is yours surely :-)
As for the photo, i like the fox a lot and these are very happy pair! Both are beautiful! i like the moment you captured! Great shot! Congratulations and au revour you too:-) Take care!

Oh ! Non !
Même si je m'y attendais, la lecture de votre note me fait comme un coup de massue. J'ai beaucoup estime pour vous Luc et j'ai beaucoup d'admiration pour votre talent photographique !
Je suis surpris que le S2 ne vous satisfasse pas, car au travers de TN on voit des résultats extraordinaires comme ce dernier cliché de toute beauté...
Si un jour votre tirelire vous permet de venir en France, je vous invite à venir partager un gros bout de Nature avec moi autour du lac d'Annecy et au Chinaillon en altitude !
A bientôt mon ami canadien.

Your shots and your comments always are formidable and this one is as good as the others. I understand you: time is scarse, things to do many, existence short,... and sometime time in front of computer came from time outdoor. If everything is limited time is very very limited: DSLR and $ can be get, but time has to do with biochemical degradation of organic matter.
Au Revoir! Be happy in the time you recover: this would be the source for next entry here.

Hi luc, A touching image and the same time, it seem scary. The eyes of the big fox is so intense and nicely colored red. I do hope you get over some of the issues that you've mentioned and be back here actively at TN to post all those nice pics and comments.. Luis

It's sad news to hear you gonna leave us but I hope for a "På åter seende snart"
Your picture has always been great and you always had nice word to us specially new members. We will all miss you, specially me who will miss my young brother and old friend.
Take good care and be in touch.

I think that must not be an Au Revoir for ever!?! Everybody has that moment to think - I can't do better things, but to have fun with making photos is the important thing.
Perhaps the joy comes back - and than you come and visit us again, ok?
Thanks for your marvelous shots during the last year I also have been a member on this site. All the best for you, we will miss you, bye

It seems like Lucy sensed this gloomy state of affairs and I think I can see the sadness in her eyes. Even the youngster knew that something drastic is wrong as the body language speaks of one who is seeking for some assurance that all is still fine.
I have already posted a reply on your thread in the forum and with the risk of repeating myself or with the possibility of revealing too much of my emotions, I should rather abide by that.
At least we still have your lovely new web site here which we can visit and say hello to you from time to time.
Go well my friend and thanks for all you have meant to me on or off this site.
PS. Viva la nouvelles frontières.

Au Revoir! Non, non, mon ami! "Au revoir" est si facile à dire, mais je m'ennuierai de vous beaucoup mon ami.
Luci and Kid are very beautiful here, and you have taught us so much about the love this mama has for her babies, and the hard life they have in store for the future. Thank you.
Luc, I hope you will return, but I do understand your reasons. Keep well and keep happy,
- milloup (1716)
- [2006-06-12 17:08]
Lovely post to finish off with, Luc. Crisp and clear and a lovely pose.
I do hope, however, that it's au revoir rather than adieu for good. Do stop by from time to time to browse and maybe put your oar in from time to time. Take care and may the good things in life come your way ;-)

Superbe cadeau de départ que tu nous fais là. Malgré les faiblesses du petit capteur, cette image témoigne que le matériel compte peu versus le talent. Très belle composition demontrant plein d'émotion. Faudrait pas te mettre un "BLAD" à 39 mégapixels dans les mains, tu ferais un tabac.
Chapeau pour cette belle réussite, qui espérons le, ne sera pas la dernière.

It doesn't seem like I've been in this community for very long and in the short time that I've been here I have met some very nice & interesting people, not to mention fantastic talentened people such as you. Your words have always been encouraging on every comment you have assigned to me and it is a source energy that drives me to go out and accomplish more. You have done fantastic with your camera and have shared wonderful images with us all that we will all surely miss.
You all come back, ya hear.

Hello my friend!
Sad news. I hope, no, I know that you'll return! Trek Nature is like drug and every single member is like pill :-) I'll be waiting for your next photo.
This one is fantastic. Touching scene, warm light, poses and faces. Flawless capture perfectly chosen for this sad day.

Mon cher Luc,
Qu'est-ce-que ca veut dire, "au revoir"?
Ca veut dire "a la prochaine", n'est ce pas?
I cannot accept being abandoned,
so I will always look for you. : )
Go do what you have to do.
Enjoy the sun and the wind.
But remember, I will always look for you. : )
A bientot, mon ami.

I am saddened by your news. You have contributed so much to this site and your many words have encouraged so many and also touched our hearts. You will leave a huge void that will never be filled. I understand and respect your decision. Please pop back from time to time and tell us of what you have seen that fills your heart with joy. I will miss you. Take care my friend.
This is a touching shot of Mother and her wee one, and a very fitting image to say Au Revoir!

You were the very first person to welcome me to TN, with my first 2 points received and a hearty encouragement to look into a completely new world [to me]. My later postings testify to the importance your comments had in initiating my passion for insect photography.
For all the limitations of your camera, I still think your shots are fantastic

You will be missed! I hope that the magical TN magnetism will draw you back here from time to time :-)
This is a beautiful post for goodbye. I'm glad you choose foxes. They are your trademark and every single picture of this lovely family was a masterpiece. I love the tension in mother's eyes and the look of child that seems to be unaware of any dangerous of the world. It's very peaceful and very beautiful picture.
Farewell Luc :-)

Bonjour Luc !
Je suis encore relativement nouvelle sur TL, quelques mois à peine, mais j'ai si souvent vu votre nom, et j'ai tellement aimé vos photos que, même si nous n'avons jamais appris à nous connaître, votre départ me laisse triste, le coeur serré. Je vous souhaite beaucoup de bonheur, et j'espère que de temps en temps vous trouverez le temps de venir faire un petit coucou a tous vos anciens amis de TN :-)

I am so sorry to see you say goodbye, Luc, even though I understand completely, having come to similar conclusions myself about prefering time spent outdoors. You have been a great asset to this site with your kind and encouraging comments as well as your outstanding photography. I do hope that we will see you back again when winter makes the outdoors a little less hospitable.

This is a good shot. Very touching moment. I would not give in if I was you. Keep going for the fun of it. I also do not have much time, but every now and then I come back from the bush and try to share some of my experiences. It is not about paying debts or feeling obliged to write critiques, it is about sharing, or so I feel. Hope to see some of your work again soon.

Thank You Luc.
You have truly been an inspiration. I actual first found Trek Nature because a friend sent me a link to you picture. (the Grey Wolf back from 2005-01-04) Nothing in life ignited a fire under my but then your art! I picked up a camera and never looked back! Thank you!
Best of Luck and I truly hope that someday you will come back and share your gift again.

What a cute scane.Very well caught.I know how difficult is to catch little birds with a compact camera:)Sometimes i think to buy a new dslr but only a good dslr is also not enough for it and we need a very good lens with long focal lenght,fast autofocusing system,etc.I hope you will be back with wonderful shots again.Take care!

Toutefois, je comprend très bien la situation. Je vous souhaite le meilleur et à bientôt j'espère!
