    2013 Photo collection

    Maybe we can start a thread where folks can post recent shots they liked in one common thread similar to the old "I just got my digital camera" thread. Who knows, maybe this place has a little life left.

    Two from the weekend.

    Cooperative pelican.

    I've been by this particular dead tree many times but never tried to shoot it. I'm not happy with the way it turned out and need to try it in different conditions. I think at night painted with a flashlight might turn out cool.

    Chuck....

    you're on to something with the tree....
    What about the time of the day when the sun may light it up a little better, convert to B&W, then work a little magic during PP....
    you might be able to make the tree pop by turning down the back lighting...

    OR wait till the sun either just rising or setting and paint it with a big mag light....
    you'll have to play with exposure time (long) and be on a tripod with remote release....

    a good flash at the before mentioned times may do it for you too....

    3. Flight at dusk.


    4. Sandhill displaying.


    5. Public Bus rolls by. 2 second exposure.

    Ahh, it lives! At least a bit anyway.

    That's more or less what I was thinking Mac. I'll be up there again in the next month or two for sure.

    Glad to see the Heron population has a chance to expand.

    Found another one I like a bit. I took Guidenet's advice and bought a Kenko 1.4 Pro TC for $120.00 from KEH and have it mounted on the 300 AF-D lens. This and the Pelican were handheld (of course) with this lens combination. For the money I'm happy.

    From today. The Osprey mating pair and one other (male) were in a three bird dog-fight for several minutes before this pair came overhead.

    The GBH's are having their eggs hatch the last few days.

    Also, looks like the Great Egrets are finally ready for mating too.

    Fight in the wetlands. Photos taken 1-11-13 at MacArthur State Park. There was a hen in heat and these two roosters were fighting. It was a special afternoon.
