I thought we all needed a little suggestion of Spring this week, as here in the Pacific Northwest it has been feeling a lot like Winter. With all of the rain and cold weather we have been enduring, I have found myself looking through my images from last Spring and Summer to inspire me for this years Spring photography outings. I am very much looking forward to the first signs of wildflowers, and the great macro photography opportunities that pop-up this time of year. I can’t wait!
I photographed this image of a Great Blue Heron atop an old piling along the Columbia River. I woke very early one foggy morning and made my way down to a spot that I had previously scouted. I was lucky enough to have great light that morning, along with some mood setting fog, great pilings, and old wooden docks. I managed to walk away that morning with several images that I was pleased with. I have come to an agreement with myself to shoot for one “keeper” image each outing at the very least. You always seem to know immediately if you have a keeper or not. It is always a good feeling to know you have your “one keeper” under the belt, as any additional winners are just an added bonus. Then there’s those days when we come home with none. 🙁 We won’t talk about those days. 🙂 Prey for sun my friends, and enjoy your Spring and Summer!!! Get outside and LIVE like today is your last!
This image was photographed with a Canon 5D Mk2 and a 300mm f/4 lens.
