Let's Get This Party Started!
I used to have a wild fascination with fireworks. That is until I inadvertently shot myself with a Roman candle years ago. I have a nice apple sized scar on the side of my knee to remind me just how hot pyrotechnics burn. Now I am a bit more cautious. Just last year my son and I lit one of those white hot bombs that explode with a chest rattling concussion. Instead of shooting high into the night, it peaked at about twenty feet and Kaboom...two very scared firemen hit the deck much to the amusement of our guests!
That pure light against a black velvet sky is captivating. In my header picture a brightly lit Green heron flies through a shadowy background like a rocket taking flight. We bird photographers seldom reach for our cameras after dusk, that is our time to rake over our hundreds of brightly illuminated jpegs searching for something remarkable.
In the spirit of our Independence from England that we Americans celebrate this week, I took my camera out and poked around in a dark and unfamiliar territory; a New World, if you will.
First, a tip of the cap to the Spirit of '76
Okay, I'll admit our partying can go a bit far at times! This picture was made by mixing eight drunk hippies, two lighted Frisbee's, and a long exposure at 4:15 AM, well shaken...to be continued.
This is the home of World Bird Wednesday. A place for bird photographers from around the world to gather and share their photographs and experiences as they pursue Natures most beautiful treasurers, the birds.
You don't have to be a Bird Watcher or expert photographer to join in, just enjoy sharing what you bring back from your explorations and adventures into nature!
