Great Blue Heron - High Contrast Version

A friend and I went out this morning to see if we could find a Great Blue Heron that had been hanging around at a local park. At first I didn't see him, but when I looked again, there he was. We watched and photographed him for a few minutes and than there were two herons, and then 3 and then four. They flew in and out, so we couldn't photograph all four at the same time, but it was a pleasure to see four of these magnificent birds at one location. Due to my recent injury, I could only use my Canon sx200 point and shoot camera, but I kind of liked this picture. I cropped the original somewhat and used a couple of PhotoShop tricks to get this effect. I hope you enjoy it.

Arkansas Sunrise

My friends and I had to dress quickly to get pics like this of the sun rising over the Arkansas hills. It was worth the effort, though. Hope you enjoy it.

When my friends and I were in Arkansas last month we stopped in a nice little local restaurant to eat lunch. Of course, being photographers, we had to document the occasion, so we took pictures of each others' food, much to the dismay of our waitress. There wasn't a lot of space and, at one point, we almost caused a collision. The lighting was not perfect, but sometimes, when you're taking pictures, you just have to take what you can get. Anyway, it was a fun lunch and I didn't think the picture came out too bad.

The Railing

As most of you probably know, my right wrist and left collar bone are both broken due to a bad fall while I was on a photo outing, so I haven't been able to use the computer much. I was able to edit a few pictures today, though, and thought I'd share this one. It's a different subect for me, but I enjoyed working with it.
What do you think of when you see this picture? It makes me wonder about the people who stayed in the room next to the railing, what they were like, what their dreams were and what they saw when they looked out the window. I can't do much else right now, so I'd enjoy reading your comments. Please share them with me and with the other readers.
