I have been accumulating a lot of miscellaneous photos over the last month in between all the close up photography I have been doing. Over the weekend I went through them and found a few gems.
When I took this photo I was already thinking it would give me an opportunity to use the textures now available on Picnik.com, the online photo editor I use for special effects.
St. Patrick’s Day treated upstate New York with the first and, so far, only Spring-like day this year. Not one to waste such a fine day, I went for a walk on the trail near where I work. I came upon a thistle trying to escape the fencing which keeps people away from the highway.
The trail has a bridge which goes over the New York State Thruway. I cranked up the shutter speed to freeze this big rig just before it rumbled under me.
The night I photographed the Super Moon, I arrived early to find other signs of Spring at the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge.
After landing, this goose found a peaceful place on one of the refuge’s ponds.
Before moving to the location I had tracked down to photograph the moon from, I took this photo of the Earth’s other large celestial body easily seen in the sky, the Sun.
There, I am ready for Spring to start. Do you hear me Mother Nature? Please!
