Photographs of Fish Hawks
Iâ€™m all fired up about making calendars. This weekend, I went out to get photographs for next yearâ€™s calendar.
Â The ospreys are nesting on markers along the river. We went out sailing in the morning.
Morning light is fantastic for taking pictures. Itâ€™s when the light is fresh, clean, and softâ€”not harsh like it is at mid-day. Overhead light on a sunny day also makes strong shadows that can detract from an otherwise fantastic picture. Many people donâ€™t realize that overcast can give the best pictures because the light is more even.
I got some wonderful pictures of ospreysâ€”fish hawks. They have the most amazing yellow eyes.Â Â© 2007 Carol ChapmanÂ Â
