The Egrets in the Shallows

Man and nature, getting along.

I am sure that there are at least three egrets in the picture. The others look like they could be seagulls.

Vacations Past: The Snowy Egret in the Garden

leave a comment »

The egret sat with his back to me, blindingly brilliant in full sun. In order to avoid overexposing his feathers, I had to ratchet up the shutter speed, and in doing so caused the background (shady ground) to go black. No loss. I think it makes this photo interesting.

I know it’s counter to conventional wisdom about photography, but I much prefer a full, bright sunlight as opposed to the diffused light given by cloud cover. Perhaps it’s because I developed my “style”, as it were, in Southern California, where a photographer rarely gets that coveted cloud cover.
