Molly and I have not been to Riverlands much this year ( hey,it is only Jan 20th 🙂 )So, we thought a morning trip would be a good thing. One thing you can count on is running into George G, ‘senior photographer” of Riverlands. Looking fit as a fiddle, or as he puts it ” I’ve taken nourishment”, George was running the roads looking for something interesting to photograph. He reported that one of his Nikon’s was on the blink– we hope the problem is minor.
Molly and I had to shoot long distance at the swans in Heron Pond which has it pros and cons. I attached one of her images of the Trumpeter swans taking off at the end of this post.
On the way out we ran into a Great Blue Heron. I’m always amazed at the toughness of these birds– especially when the area freezes over.The portrait is the result. The image in the marsh is from Columbia Bottoms which had very little water and had not totally thawed during the recent warm up.
