Not the kind that you easterners have had, I hope all is well with everyone.

My wife and I did an overnight trip to the WA coast. I got out for a couple of hours last night and then this morning. I was counting on WeatherChannel forecasts to come through. I didn't get soaked, but the light never came through except for a few "sunbreaks" this morning.

Here is an owl from last night. Great perch, great background, I was really hoping for the golden light.

1. These birds are so stoic and photogenic.






1a. Special crop for Eric.






2. Then they do this!!






3. Which means you had better get ready for the launch.






More to come.

A beautiful setting to be sure Doug. That wonderful layered background, lovely perch and a mottled snowy makes for a great series of images. You could have gone in tighter on the first but I love how your "vision" gives it more expanse...well done.

#1 is a real stunner. You nailed the "lift off" but the bird didn't give you a look. Keeps you coming back. Don

Thanks Eric. I was excited about the background. I was working with another owl on a log and turned around to head over to this guy. As I got set up I heard someone behind me, when I turned around the photog that was next to me at the other bird was following me over with a big smile on his face.

I added a crop version from another frame just for you. Hard to decide.

WOWZA! It is a different look but a spectacular one as well. Hopefully you have a space for that one on your wall...and thanks for the "gift"!
