Photo Friday: Majestic Birds

June 2, 2017

This time of the year is perfect for capturing snowy egrets, and one finally got close enough for me to get a great shot.  If you’ve ever tried to shoot these birds, and ended up with a white blob, the secret is to under expose it by one stop; it makes all the difference.

Photo Friday: Showing Motion

May 19, 2017

If you like doing photo assignments, or challenges, this came from the Art of Photography on YouTube.  They are worth looking at.  This challenge is to convey motion in a still image.  I’ve done this before, but the shot I took this morning was worth sharing.  I just happened across this snowy egret in Mill Cove, and waited for it to start flying; they are so graceful.  I was able to keep the eye in recognizable focus, while blurring the rest.

Photo Friday: A Little Snowy Egret

May 5, 2017

This is the time of the year when snowy egrets start migrating in this part of the country.  They are beautiful, and their bodies are about the size of a seagull.  Today’s shot is of the first one I’ve seen this year.

Photo Friday: No Egrets

If I were to have any regrets about my photography, it would be not having my camera at a great photo moment.  To be honest, those times have happened in the past.

Today’s shot was one I was definitely ready for.  I was on my way home, from work, when I saw a snowy egret hunting for fish.  I loved the way the ripples in the water’s current played around its feet.
