I photographed this Great Blue Heron today in the pond at the cul de sac in my neighborhood. Since I was born in Buffalo and spent the first 34 years of my life there, I never stop being amazed at seeing beautiful birds like this when I walk out of my door to go to the mailbox. I have photographed the Great Blue Heron many times before but I especially like the colors captured on this one and how close I was able to get. This photo hasn’t been cropped.
This pile of leaves can be found right by my driveway. It’s a pretty boring subject but fills the “dried” category. I amped up the color to try to make it more interesting.
I took this picture a few weeks ago while talking to my neighbor in his driveway. I looked up and this is what I saw. I just installed Lightroom on my computer so I thought this would be a fun picture to play around with. I ended up going back to most of my original settings so it is pretty much SOTC.
I took this picture of my two Goldendoodles, Bergy and Dozer, last night as they were having some fun chasing a ball. I put my Canon Powershot in “Sports” mode so I could keep shooting continuously. At first, I was tempted to apply one of the themes: movement, contrast (4 years verses 4 months) or my back yard since this is basically my back yard but decided that I would use a Wild Card since I know I can do better with these themes if I apply myself a bit. I have taken pictures of Bergy pretty high up in the air when I manage to get him over to our neighborhood dog park so stay tuned!
I photographed this Northern Mockingbird earlier in the week. I stood under the Palm tree and shot up. I like how it appears that the bird is looking right at me to see what is going on.
