Great Blue Heron

Ardea herodias

Great Blue Heron posing for profile shot.  Notice how the feathers are swept to the camera-side shoulder.

From any sort of distance, Great Blues look uniformly gray.  I am always surprised by the amount of colour that is actually there.

This and shots of many other birds can be seen in the Serious Bird Shots Gallery.

The picture is of Ralston.

The Tradewinds is a nice posh hotel on the Gulf near our place.  I was hanging around the deck on the ocean side, waiting for the sunset when Ralston approached and reminded me that if I needed anything, he would be at my service.

We had a conversation and he told me a little bit about himself.  Remembering that I had a camera, I asked him for a shot.

The warm sunset light is what appealed to me when I positioned him, and the colour version is full of warmth, but somehow this black and white version is more about him.

He said that someone older had told him there was a cereal named Ralston.  He said he was too young and didn't remember that, but he thought I might.  Sadly, no.  But I did Google it when I got home, and it still exists.

Honeymoon Suite

The couple wanted to stay for the party, but they wanted something a little bit private for overnight.  So we cut a spot through the corn and backed in this neat little T@B trailer.

Sunshine Skyway

As we passed under the Skyway, there was just enough light left to catch this picture.  As the ship went under the bridge, a long blast of the horn was sounded.  Those of us on the foredeck were certain that the stacks of the ship would be torn away by the bridge.  It caused quite a stir.

Long Course Swim

One of the swimmers in the K-Town Triathlon Long Course.  You can tell from the calm water that he is in the lead.

I like this shot.  I like the reflection in the calmer water and the bow-wave as he breaks, and the trough created in the small of his back.

More shots from that day can be seen at K-Town Triathlon 2013

The Post Card Inn is a focus point for volleyball players and the young-at-heart, possible because it one of the bars that has accessible parking.  It's also the point where people in our neighbourhood enter the beach to watch the sunset or go for a walk.

Photographers of all sorts come to the beach near me.  There are, of course the many who come to the beach to watch and photograph the sunset.  But there are also catalog shoots, wedding shoots, calendar shoots and glamour shoots.

Here, I caught a shoot in progress.  A shot of a shoot.
