Watertown, Connecticut

Crows

No, that's not sensor dust. Those are crows, flying around and roosting in the tree. They're just a distraction in a web-resolution image, but they'll really look wonderful in a print—the shapes are motion-blurred but well enough defined. The shape of this field, and the trees at the edges, just never looks the same from one day to the next. So I keep going back and looking again.

PS: A lot of visitors here also frequent Mike Johnston's blog THE ONLINE PHOTOGRAPHER, but for those who don't, or haven't been over there recently, yesterday Mike put up the first in a series of technical articles I'm publishing there. This one is called "On Buying a Camera."

Absolutley stunning series of images! Fog is such a great condition as it helps keep the compositions simple, not to mention the wonderful atmosphere.
