BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

UNEXPECTED 

35 Comments

This was one of those quiet days at the reserve, a pleasant walk but nothing much about. As we headed back to the car we saw some people nearby and someone pointed out a green heron at the water’s edge. The path was narrow, the light poor and trying to maneuver around branches and people was a challenge. The bird was backlit and there was a colour cast.  I corrected the lighting in Lightroom and used Photoshop to correct the colour cast.

  7. Awesome photo. I wish i could paint something like this and catch the sparkle on the water as well as the action and detail of the animals.

  10. You mean you didn’t try to save the frog and bring a Big Mac for the heron instead? (That would kill him, I’m sure!) You got a good picture there in spite of all the challenges. Nicely done.

  15. This angle is just perfect!! I watched three of these beauties from afar yesterday, but couldn’t imagine what the occasional stab into the water was retrieving!! Frogs are certainly one possibility. Great capture!!!
