Dash Through The Reeds
The sky was a mostly grey and cloudy yesterday evening at the salt marsh. But just prior to sunset, and for only a few minutes, a bit of sun peaked through clouds long enough to illuminate the reeds in a nice warm light. At that moment a great blue heron made a quick cruise through the reeds and across the marsh on the way to his evening roost.
Lovely capture, Phil. 🙂
Thank you Sylvia, there were three of these guys out yesterday and we had some interesting encounters. More photos upcoming. 🙂
Loved the textures and colors in this one. Great shot! 🙂
Thank you, that early evening low sunlight makes some nice colors out there.
It’s great to get that focus though the plants.
I locked on him just before he entered into that heavy reed area and it maintained focus.
Oops, I shouldn’t have said that, I should let everyone think it’s my excellent photo skills doing it all. 🙂
Phil, you got that beautifully! And the colours – oh wow!
Those brown salt marsh reeds light up nicely this time of year if we get some sun at the right time. Thanks Maggie.
What an exciting capture. Really conveys the movement. But so many aspects of this photo I like!
I’m happy to hear you enjoyed this one. I picked it out of a group and something about it I just just liked.
