4 days of having snow here in NE Georgia…
Since I was a kid I have always wanted to get that classic photo of a male Cardinal in the snow…..and two days ago was my big break. Temperatures in the upper 20’s, fresh snow, sky overcast, and freezing rain filling up the tops of my boots and cap…I pretended I was a National Geographic photographer and headed out.
The light was not very favorable….so I composed these frames with Japanese style for ink drawings in mind. The effect is whimsical and in a few of the pics you can get a glimpse of the Cardinal’s comic side.
The next day the lighting was much better….but the male Cardinal stayed up in the top of the tree…but managed to get a few crisp pictures of a female Cardinal….and later the male…
The last picture here is our goofy dog playing in the snow….
Gotta get outside and be creative.
