Fall Portrait

I took these photos on a very cold day in November. It was misserable weather for having your picture taken because all we wanted to do was bundle up and go back indoors. By the time we were done we had red noses and frozen fingers.

In my haste, I lament that I didn’t take the time to make sure the shots were turing out. Many pictures had a good idea going but I didn’t execute the way I should have. I think I really didn’t have a good idea of what I needed to get either, which led to many random shots that weren’t kept. I guess that’s part of learning from you mistakes.

In the end I did end up with some keepers. Here are a few…

Black Bird

This one was taken from my own back yard. I sat and watched the father and mother birds bringing food to the nest inside a hollowed out part of the tree. Earlier in the spring I got to see them working to build the nest that is now filled with hungry babies. This picture is of the father who is carrying some red berries, just before going into the nest.
