Let's take a little break from South Carolina! We have had tons of rain this year, and that has kept the water at Great Falls a brown, flooded mess. Discouraged by this, I hadn't been visiting to photograph the Great Blue Herons like I had wanted to, and it was putting me in quite a photographic funk. However, I finally caved in and just went anyways yesterday afternoon. Turns out that wasn't a bad idea, as I was able to get quite a few images, as well as a decent sunset. This particular image is of an adult Great Blue Heron in one of their prized fishing areas. The Herons caught 4 large Bullhead out of this area during the 3 hours that I was there. As the sun was dipping below the horizon, it lit up this guys upper body, as well as some of the surrounding water. I really liked the contrast between light and shadow, and luckily was able to capture this one image before the light fell below the horizon for good.
