Birds at the Feeder New Year’s Day

Birds at the Feeder New Years Day_edited-3_wm

I shot this image yesterday.  There were only a couple birds at the feeder.  Two Male Cardinals and one Junco.  A bit of the ole, De Ment, luck.  I just happened to hit the shutter as one of the Cardinals was in motion.  The other Cardinal is almost hidden by the dark of the window and the Junco looks on from the upper right. I have a good many images to load over the next few days.

Spring in the Backyard – Touched Up


I shot and posted this image earlier but brought it back up for a little work.  Particularly the Flowering Crab and Daisy Plants.

Illinois River Valley 2013 Enhanced


A few weeks ago I loaded this image.  Yesterday I discovered an editing program called, “Aviary,” (it’s free) and was astounded at its strength.  My original post didn’t even show the grass in the lower left hand corner…let alone its color.  It sharpened the picture and allowed me to bring forth greater color and tone.  For my friends, this editing program is for phones and tablets.  “I am not being paid to push this program!”

I shot this in June of 2016.  I love to shoot in light and shadow. I was standing in our street.
