Photo Challenge – Lens-Artists: Shade and Shadows

Our challenge this week is to share photos with shade and shadows. Normally shade and shadows are a photographer’s worse nightmare but you can get some nice captures with the right timing and positioning.

To make the challenge a little harder I decided to use photos of wood storks only. For those that don’t know, the wood stork is partial to our marshlands and can be found there most of the year. They are very graceful in flight but they have got to be the ugliest bird on this planet.

I‘m not being mean. I’ve heard other photographers say the same thing. From the neck down, they are beautiful but from the neck up, they look like buzzards.

Wood storks are very social birds and often roost together each night. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all get along like the wood storks?

But the more I watch them, the better looking they get. Strange, isn’t it?

The photo below is one of my favorites. It was taken at sunset and the water was a beautiful gold color.

My newest book Caroline Has a Mole is out, It’s about a little girl with a mole and how she deals with a bully in school. It was written specifically for a friend but could apply to any child being bullied. Here’s a link:

The TV was on as I was reading Amy’s challenge and a Planet Earth episode was on.  I’m always fascinated by any nature show and it’s interesting how much animals are just like us so today I’m sharing some of their everyday moments.

Three Is The Perfect Number

Have you noticed how photographs with three subjects catch your eye?  I’m not sure why but I have noticed a trend in my photography.

Three SwansThree DucksThree Wood Storks

 

But then, photography is like a story with a beginning, a middle and an end.  It makes perfect sense when you think of it that way.
