Photo Challenge: Depth

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/depth/

DSC_0061Last week a flock of white ibises visited my marshy world.  They were very agreeable about posing for pictures, so I was able to get quite close and took many photos.  I think this shot shows depth pretty well.  The birds in front are in focus with the ones in the back blurred.

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge – Textures

Crabs and Oysters, oh my.  Here’s my two-fer on Textures.

First photo is a shot of the mud burrows of the fiddler crabs.  If you look closely on the right side of the picture you can see the crabs at work.

The second photo is a close up of an oyster bed along the river bank.

Photo Challenge – Shadow

It was early afternoon on Monday.  Sunshine was bright and the sky was clear….a perfect day for casting shadows.

This gull was flying very low to the ground.  Pretty cool how the wings almost touch the sand.

For a little bird…this guy cast a pretty large shadow.

DSC_0264 (2)Around the oyster beds and shells, these two were looking for lunch.  I didn’t really notice at the time I was taking the picture, but the shadows do give depth to the photo.

DSC_0279 (2)When I looked at this flier, I noticed the stripe across his chest.  At first I thought it was just odd coloring, but then I realized that his wing was shading his body.

Hope you like my shadows.
