I was as undecided as I could be about what to send out tonight, so it was just open a folder, rapidly spin the wheel and click after it started cycling images in the folder and this is where I landed. It is a photo I took last December on a flight up to the peaks after a nice snowfall.
After the last trip out to Watson lake on Friday I found a number of shots of Cormorants I took where the shots gave the appearance of an eyeless bird … closer examination shows that his head is rotated ninety degrees to the right … one eye down and one up.
It has been a very good day beginning with an early AM flight up to Red Mountain to get some more shots of it … no matter how good you already have, the absolute perfection killer shot is just waiting to be taken so you go back and do it again.
Green ... the color of life and summer … coupled with the mystical beauty that is Watson Lake.
Yesterday’s image was of the eagle soaring overhead and tonight is the view he would have if soaring the gap between Long Canyon and Oak Creek Canyon.
It caused 1,000 miles of travel and a man's death; the strange story told by a prospector:
This Cormorant seems to have that look as he launches himself into flight, the teal colored eyes staring down the watery runway stretching out before him.
There is beauty and there is life. We headed down to Watson Lake this afternoon, in and between, some fantastic monsoonal storms … after checking the weather radar apps we headed out on the lake, somewhat confident that we would be remaining between several large storms that were traversing the area.
What do you see ... … an image comprising roughly 95% of Sedona and all its various enclaves, more than that though, I see a community of people living in a place of incredible beauty.
It seemed like it was Wednesday night, but it wasn’t and no I’m not cutting back again … still four nights a week.
