Up In The Air

Perched

I took this one at Davis Lake, Oregon.  Central Oregon is a fantastic place.  There’s an endless variety of places/things to shoot.  Not long after this shot was taken a bald eagle flew over head, landed, and started fishing.  I wasn’t quick enough to get a great shot.  Sometimes it’s better to live in the moment than to shoot it.

Sometimes shooting a great photograph is a matter of paying attention and getting lucky.

I was in Nevada walking the docks at Lake Mead and I happened to notice this amazing reflection in the water of a sign on the side of a building. It looked like a weird painting and I wondered if I could get the shot to actually reflect what I was seeing.

Paying attention and luck is sometimes the recipe for interesting photography.
