A Small Gathering
Posted on October 2, 2013
My blogger friend Karen (who is an amazing artist and photographer) over at DrawandShoot took this exquisite photograph. I just had to share it.
I made several photographs of these Great Egrets quite a while ago but I never felt like the images really expressed the extraordinary experience of being with these graceful creatures. I say ‘being with’ because I was standing in the water not too far from them – there was no long lens in my camera bag that day so I was pushing my luck.
Anyway, I have played with this image a little, adding a layer of … recollection, I guess. This what it feels like to wade with the egrets.
