I Am Here !!!

This is another of several lucky, and unexpected shots that I have gotten of hawks while out doing nature photography. Even though there’s a dirty little rodent that’s fixing to be the main course, you gotta love and respect the poetic beautify of nature.

Sweet Home Alabama – Lynard Skynard

After I pulled up the photo of Jeff Cook of the Alabama band last week, I took a second look at the photo set I have of Lynard Skynard hoping to find a shot suitable for a future TOCC TV cover. Alas, the band is worthy but my photography is not. Well, reall it is, but putting a horizontal aspect ratio onto a verticle cover just isn’t going to fit.

Blue Herons

I felt this to be a remarkable shot for several reasons. The rarity, getting three in one frame, the distance away, and the distance off the ground up in the trees. It was well after dark, shooting max f-stop and zoom at a max 300mm for a 2 second exposure at 800 iso, on a monopod steadied against a nearby fence. After the fact, I found I actually over exposed a little bit, but all in all I can’t complain too much about the clarity and sharpness of the focus.

About Photography

I put this graphic together as the cover of an Internet portfolio of photographs back in 1999. So, I never have claimed to be a graphic artist, but I thought the result was pretty good considering I didn’t even have a program with layers to work with. Alas, the elements are all gone, although I might redo it anyway.
