I must have driven past this barn a hundred times over the last few years and never felt compelled to photograph it. Yesterday, however, sitting in the snow against a gray sky it was enough to entice me to pull over and grab a couple of images.
I had to go to one of our Cedar Rapids banks yesterday for a meeting. I always seem to find something of interest to photograph. Yesterday was no exception. On the way back from Cedar Rapids I noticed this large bird sitting in a tree close to the road. My first thought was it must be a juvenile eagle so I slowed down and pulled onto the shoulder. As I stealthy moved up (imagine me being stealthy) it became clear this was a large hawk. He let me get 4 images before he took off.
My new system arrived yesterday. There is a pretty steep learning curve to it and last evening was spent reading material, doing some minor assembly, and charging a series of batteries. It is a complex system but I am hopeful it will add another interesting dimension to my photography tool box. More work on it tonight and then Saturday the first trial (hopefully.)
That’s it for today. Enjoy your Friday, it took its sweet time getting here. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Be careful.
