It’s All About the Light
“In order to see birds, it is necessary to become a part of the silence.” R. Lynde
Last week we had a serious rainstorm here on Kiawah. Soon afterwards I headed out with my Nikon for some of the most glorious light I’ve seen in a very long time. The sky was as blue as it could be and the late evening sun made the marsh positively glow with verdant green. Happily, there was an extremely cooperative egret working with me to create a lovely record of the day’s end.
Birds on Kiawah come in all shapes and sizes. Evenings too, come in an infinite number of varieties. Every once in a while, it all comes together to create the perfect photographic opportunity. And then, it’s as good as it gets.
