Well – I was digging through images for another project – and stumbled on to this photo that I made a few years ago. It was one of my first attempts at high dynamic range photography (HDR) – and was taken down at the Finley Wildlife Refuge on an early morning.
The funny story behind the image? The blue heron off to the left – halfway through the exposures – decided to get up and walk out of the frame. Fortunately – it didn’t really impact the overall image.
This was probably my first attempt at “art” – and regardless if it worked or not – I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for this image. Maybe it’s the moodiness – maybe it’s the blue heron looking back at the tree.
So – here you go – one from the archives. Enjoy!
