Tern Tern Tern - Back at the Dam

Post by minniev » Wed Dec 18, 2019 4:55 pm

Here's a couple of pictures from earlier this week. The winter visitor terns have come back, and I hope their return is a sign the egrets and herons may follow as they often do. Tell me if either of these has interest. Feel free to play with them or suggest a creative/artistic way to go somewhere else with them.

I like them both but you know I'm a b/w kinda guy...the color almost seems like a bit of an optical illusion for me...the rainbow area seem like a mirror or window or something.

Thanks Frank. I do understand about the dam how, it is surreal in real life. When conditions are right, it boils up out of the water like a genie out of a lamp. It sways with the water like it’s dancing. It’s very weird.

minniev! For me, the intense energy of the b&w is an incredible experience that I can’t get enough of. I cropped off the lower third-ish so that I could stay focused on the frenetic action of the birds against the roaring rush of water. My eyes darted all over the image, again and again. I literally became/felt the swoosh-cut-dive-lift-zip excitement!!!!! Thank you! It was fun!!!

Thanks Karen. I think you’re right that I can/should crop out some of the water at the bottom. The frenzied bird action above is what I liked best in the scene.
