I have three images for you today that have no relationship with each other. I captured them last Monday on my Photo Odyssey and I selected them today because they each appeal to me for a different reason. Remember you can click on the image to reveal a larger more detailed version. 🙂
Of course if you follow this blog for any time at all, you are aware of my love of farm scenes and harvest images. I went past this old machine shed with all the corn-stalk bales in the field. It was near the end of the light and I had to make an image.
I also enjoy making image of the great Mississippi River. This is a section of the river near Mud Lake. It was here last year that I got a picture of a Fox walking on the ice looking for lunch. That is the closest I’ve been to a Fox but it is my goal this year to get closer.
Finally I will leave you with this poor (composition wise) image of a Red-Tailed Hawk. I came over a hill and saw him sitting on the phone poll. Making sure there were no cars coming (I could see a long way) I got the D4 and my 600 mm lens ready and dove as slow as I could until I could get a photo of him. A second after this image he took to the air. As long as a car is passing at normal speed they pay it little attention, but if you slow down they will depart the area in a hurry. 🙂
Only 19 degrees this morning in my little part of the world. Supposed to get up to 40 so I hope to get some more images today.
Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
