Slow start to the year 03-05-17
While Northern California has made a miraculous recovery from its four-year drought, the rainfall has made it difficult to make wildlife pictures. 2016 was not only a transformative year for my photography, it was also a phenomenal time for capturing the local birds. Unfortunately, many of them have moved on to greener pastures. Gone are the days when I could plant myself on the dock at Lake Chabot and wait for the pelicans, egrets and heron. It was literally like shooting fish in a barrel and I was blessed that the animals made my job so easy.
But then that's what makes the pictures better and more satisfying to capture. If making good pictures were really that easy, anyone could do it, making them ordinary. The fact that not everyone can capture these images that makes them extraordinary. So while the weather has been a little uncooperative, I've still managed to sneak out between showers and make a few nice images.
