I got up early Wednesday morning and headed over to Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge – one of my favorite spots. Although I managed to come back with some photos I like, all did not go well.
Jim Boland’s newsletter let us know that they’ve reopened Black Point so when Tom M. asked if I wanted to go out photographing I suggested we head over to Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. We met early Friday morning and drove over on State Road 50.
Here are a few photos this week from a scouting trip to Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge last Thursday. I wanted to see how it was doing in the wake of Hurricane Irma.
I was planning to post more photos from our recent cruise this weekend. But after visiting Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge last Friday with Kevin K. and Tom M. from the Photography Interest Group, I changed my mind. There’s a great deal of activity there and it’s well worth a blog post (and a visit!).
Many photographers would agree that daylight savings time and “fall back” make it harder to get up for sunrise. We met at 6am last Friday for a photo expedition over to Merritt Island.
I haven’t been to Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge in a while (the last time was back in May!) and I miss the place. So I left around 6pm yesterday and headed over.
The first part of my visit to Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge last Tuesday (2/2/16) was about as foggy as I’ve ever seen.
This is a five frame composite B&W image of a single Redish Egret patrolling a small pool of water at the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. There was some interest in how I did this and it’s relatively simple, so I thought I’d show you the steps.
Reddish Egrets aren’t as common in Florida as some of our other wading birds. I seem to see them fairly reliably over on Blackpoint Wildlife Drive in the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.
I spent last Wednesday morning at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. I hadn’t been in a while and I enjoyed seeing what’s going on over there.
