Nature Studies

10Dec09

At the end of last month 3 of my friends from the South Jersey Camera Club (Joanna, Terry, Jeanne) and I met in the dark and headed out to Whitesbog for sunrise. Our plan was to catch the Tundra Swans sleeping and make award winning photographs of them in the early morning light. As so often happens in the world of nature photography things did not go exactly according to plan. We found a group of four swans but they were quite far away … even for my 500 mm lens. Then a truck came along and scared them off, so that was that. In search of something to photograph we went to the village where we photographed the buildings and looked for nature subjects uncovered by close examination of the grounds. Here are some of my ‘nature studies’ from that morning.
