We’ve had an unseasonably warm October, and I’m taking advantage of that as much as I can. I’m not content to just be working outside, I need to be biking to work too. And, of course, the GoPro comes along for the ride.
I was on my morning bike ride and I saw this gorgeous heron. Fortunately, I had the camera on my phone, unfortunately, the heron didn’t feel very photogenic. It flew about 20 feet down, so I followed it. Then it took off again, so I gave chase. This pattern continued about three more times until the poor creature just flew off entirely. I got some decent photos, but I can’t help but feel like a bit of a jerk.
With a new house, comes a new neighborhood. I spent a morning just wandering around with my camera. We’re only about 75 yards from a lake, which which I hope has some great potential for future shoots. In the morning, fog rises from the water, and it makes for some interesting silhouette effects. I’m going to keep a close eye on the lake to see what else it has to offer.
