"TREE TOPPINGS"

Great Blue Heron - 7 Photos

 

What with intense sunlight, humidity and smoke, Nature's lighting this Summer has been interesting and challenging at times. In fact, the day prior I had a similar opportunity to capture a Great Blue Heron (may even have been the same heron) on the same tree close to the same time of day.

 

Because the heron had been so gracious with its time, I had had ample opportunity to check and even experiment with the settings on the camera. However, when I downloaded the photos, although sharp, they weren't what I was expecting.

 

The next day the heron returned to the same tree & although, the lighting was slightly subdued with light cloud around, the clarity had definitely improved and the sky was almost magical with subtle tones of blue & pink. 

 

That background brought out definition & sharpness in the heron and its feathers giving it this surreal appearance. And what could be better than to find at the top of an old fir tree, a Great Blue Heron.
