Heron Flying To Nest Over The Swamp

This is a male heron gathering sticks for the nest. I kept the images wide to keep as much of the surrounding swamp as possible.

While the bird is important to the photograph these were also about the location too. Tupelo trees, with Spanish Moss, and a flying heron, make a much more dramatic photo.

Black And White Waiting Heron

I have been working on a different style of back and white photographs. The purpose is to have dramatic images, landscape style, for printing on aluminum.

Photographs printed on aluminum are ideal to hang in areas that have less light. The shine and clarity accent a dimly lit area.

I have tested this with darker evening images of owls that I have hung myself. A dramatic image on this medium draws attention to itself.

This heron photograph looks to be perfect for aluminum. I know of one that will be hanging soon.

Great Egret In Dark Reeds

On a dull or rainy day the reeds and cane in marshes provide a soft, flat, back drop. The Egret is probably about 15 feet in front of the cane which helps the background blur.

This is the same area we have photographed many times yet it takes a completely different tone here.
