Blue Skies

I complained a bit about our weather last week, and I do think we’ve been getting more than our normal share of clouds and rain. It doesn’t seem right though to grumble about a few gloomy days here in Central Florida when conditions in some other parts of the country and world are bad or worse.

Anyway, it isn’t quite “Nothing but blue skies do I see” around here, but we have had some very nice days recently. This week I’ll just show you a few photos of “Blue skies smiling at me” to prove it.

Trumpet Trees (Tabebuia) are plain most of the year. In the spring, they burst with blooms for a couple of weeks. The trees in the next two photos are already blending back into the landscape.

Here’s one last image. It’s not “Blue birds singing a song” but I feel like this blackbird was enjoying the blue skies as much as I was.

Try Something Different

This isn’t typical of bird photos I usually make. But when I saw a backlit Great Blue Heron standing statue-like on an old post in the river – I had to try a few photos.

I was lucky I’d mounted my long zoom lens on the full frame body I usually use for landscapes. That gave me more resolution and dynamic range to play with in post-processing than I would have had if I’d used my typical crop frame birding set up.

I don’t do many silhouettes and strictly speaking, this isn’t one since I kept some detail in the dark bird. But I like the way it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Please take care of yourselves and each other. And if you can, try something different when you make your photos. You might like how they turn out!
