We were driving home the other night when I saw this beautiful Great Blue Heron out of the corner of my eye. He was standing on the banks of the salt marsh looking for dinner. I quickly drove home and got my camera. Luckily, he was still there a few minutes later.
The Great Blue Heron is my favorite bird…. so beautiful and elegant and regal. It always “makes my day” when I see “Blue” flying up in the sky…or sitting by the creek waiting for dinner.
My favorite time of the day is riding my bike across the salt marsh each morning in the early morning. This is what greeted me the other morning. There were 6 Great Egrets out on the salt marsh, but I could only fit 3 in the frame. Not bad…
It doesn’t get much better. Gorgeous, don’t you think?
The clouds over the salt marsh were just beautiful, looking out onto Cape Cod Bay from the bridge on Bridge Road.
So pretty, don’t you think?
We’ve had very little snow this winter here on Cape Cod. Yesterday when we woke up , there was about 2-3 inches on the ground and I was hoping that the sky would clear and I could get a couple of “snowy” photographs.
Later in the afternoon I took these 2 photographs of the salt marsh by the Bridge Street bridge… one looking inland toward the salt marsh and the other looking out toward Cape Cod Bay
What do you think?
I was biking across the salt marsh a couple of days ago when I looked out and saw my shadow on my bike. It was very long on the salt marsh. I stopped and thought that it might make a cool photograph. So I got my iPhone and took one.
When I looked at it, I thought that something was wrong. I was facing the wrong way. You don’t ride a bike with your body facing sideways. So I maneuvered my camera while facing forward and this is what I got.
Fun, don’t you think?
And then I figured you’d get a good laugh when you saw my first one. Ha!
It’s a lot darker in the morning than it was a few weeks ago, so I have to adjust my bike riding time a bit and leave a bit later. I was crossing the salt marsh about 6:30 and I just had to stop and take a few photographs. It was just spectacular!
I edited them a couple of different ways. Which one do you like better?
