Saw this squirrel run into the hole and waited to see if he would come out.
Heron at Hilton Head
This was the second photograph of this Heron I took that morning. The first was with the sunlight in front, but I this one with the sunlight from behind better. I was surprised at how close he let us get to him.
Took this photograph just before Christmas. It wasn’t until I was editing it that I noticed he was standing on one leg. Not sure if he is missing the other leg or if he just was standing on one. Since I’ve seen and photographed him before I checked some of the earlier photographs and he was only on one leg then also. I think he is missing a leg.
Another photograph from my October trip to Asheville, NC. This is of the boathouse at Biltmore Estate. Was trying to capture the boathouse and some of the surrounding trees. Not sure if the light is perfect, but it was one of my favorites.
Yes, it has been a while since I posted and I am finally getting around to looking at some photographs I recently took. The one above is a pond/swamp in Fort Clinch State Park on Amelia Island in Florida. This was taken while we were hiking the Willow Pond Nature Trail. Although we didn’t see any alligators here, we did see one later as we got closer to the end. At first, it looked like a log, but looking closer, it was an alligator.
Saw this group of trees in the Hunting Island State Park, SC a few weeks ago. Kept looking for a position where I could get a nice foreground leading to the trees and still capture the opening in the clouds. I wasn’t able to get the opening where I want it, but I liked the water that seems to lead you to trees. The image was taken in the evening and I was facing east.
Took this while walking the dog at one of the local parks. There are numerous trees in this open space and I liked the way this one was lit on one side. It is still winter here and the grass has not yet turned green, but the trees in the background and the clouds in the sky add to the feeling on a cool winter day.
Another photograph taken the same day as my last post. Heard this guy first and then was surprised to see him in a tree near the path I was on. I was able to get three photographs of him with this being the one I liked best.
Finally got out to take some photographs this past week. Saw this scene and thought it may be an okay shot. I’ve taken others of the same area during fall and summer and from a different position. Wish I had taken the time to move about and try another perspective. Well there is still some winter left, might get another shot.
Got a chance to take a hike in one of our local watersheds this past week. I took our new dog with me to see how well he would behave and if I could actually take pictures with him along. He behaved well and looks like I have a new hiking partner. Too bad I couldn’t find much to photograph though. I did like this scene though. The group of trees in the center and the last remnants of fall clinging to the trees.
