Face to face with GBH

May 15, 2005
Mill Creek, WA.
I have not been able to take many pictures in the past few months given my camera was in the shop and my work schedule. I did manage to sneak out around noon last week and found a place I could get eye level with some herons sitting in the trees above the Ballard locks. I should have tried the BB as it would have balanced some of the shadows out. I may try again this week if we see any more sun. Nothing great with these just felt the need to post a few. The GBH's were all full frame shots. Thanks.

This image was sharpened too much. I really need some time to redo it. I think it would be better with less sharpening applied here.

Here is a Mallard Duck with the sun on its head.

Hey Jim, glad you got your gear back and had an opportunity to shoot. These look good to me and it's nice to see you getting back into the swing of things. :smile:

Excellent Jim. The blues you have up you way are definitely "cooler" than those down here. Ours seems to have a comfort zone averaging 200 feet or more - you go inside that and they are outtahere.

Except for one occasion that I can remember, when the blue flew onto a branch about 40-50 feet away and possed there for about 10 minutes for about 5 of us.
