Our weather last week was nasty for a few days as tropical storm Eta came through Central Florida. Luckily we were spared severe wind damage or flooding, but it did throw a soggy monkey wrench into my plans to go out and make a some photos. Since I don’t have any new images, I’ll just show you two I like that haven’t been in the blog before.
The first is from a quiet, calm pre-sunrise morning. It was so empty and still that it verged on spooky as I looked around while I waited on several long exposures to finish. It’s a single frame at 24mm, f/5.6, for 20s at ISO 100 and converted to B&W in Lightroom.
There was no one near, that morning by the pier
In this second one, I like the intense concentration of the Green Heron scouting for food as it stalks along the dead branches out over a canal. It’s at 280mm, f/10, for 1/1000s at ISO 1000.
That’s it for this week. It’s nice to have a large archive of unused images, but I’ll try to get something new for you next time.
Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. The rise in Covid cases is getting very scary again. Please, please – stay safe and take care of yourselves and each other. And if you can – make some photos.

Your “old” images are “new” to us!
Both of these are superb, Ed. Two exercises in patience. The first, by the photographer – waiting 20 seconds for that shutter to release can seem forever in the dark. The second, by the heron – I am always fascinated with their ability to concentrate for so long.
Happy to hear you had no serious impact from Eta. Same here.
Tomorrow – we photograph!
Thanks so much, Wally. We’re glad you didn’t have any serious Eta problem either.
I can’t go photographing today, but definitely this week!
