    A Foggy Morning

    It has been a very long time since I have posted anything and I am really not to sure about what I am going to share now. I have been trying to get a picture of a red tail hawk for quite some time now and I have many failures. I have also never shot anything in the fog before so I took a couple of my favourite trees and did find some hawks I can't say these thrill me but I thought I would put them up to see how they could be better.

    I really like number 2, too bad it's flying away from you. But you did a great job capturing it in flight! And it looks great against the background - very nice!

    Yes, live nervous bird photography is certainly a specialised subject; particularly with flying birds.

    I find that with foggy scenes you need a good 'reference point' in the foreground otherwise fog can just look like poor focus/exposure.

    But these shots have worked well. It is obviously foggy weather here.

    Thanks Geoff and Andrew #2 is definitely my favourite of what I shot that morning. I was kind of sad because moments before that hawk was sitting on a fence post and I was sneaking just a little closer but between me and passing traffic he flew away so I quickly just snapped and hoped for the best. The trees I really like as the first one is a live tree almost embracing a dead one. I kind of think of it as physical representation of the life cycle just standing there in the middle of a corn field. The other one is dead and just stand there surrounded by life. I've photographed them many times and I never seem to get it right but I am hoping one day I will just like I will eventually get the hawk while sitting on a fence post not way up on a hydro pole. . Thanks again I appreciate the feedback.

    They are all beautiful.

    It was very fogging this morning here and I wondered how to take effective photos in it. By the time I got outside, most of it had dissapaited. Ah well, next time.
