Eagle Paparazzi At Conowingo Dam

Have you ever been to the Conowingo Dam to witness the eagle paparazzi for yourself? Or have you been a part of the paparazzi? I have done both and must say its a dam (ha ha) good time watching the eagles. The Bald Eagles gather at the base of the Conowingo Dam and on the towers and trees below the dam. They gather for breeding season and end up spreading throughout the area for nesting purposes. Photographers gather from near and far to witness the spectacle. Any given morning you will find a line of photographers a 1/4 mile long with gear stretching collectively into the hundreds of thousands.

I Made A Mistake…

After practicing for an assignment I suddenly realized that the weather was lining up for a good sunset. So I packed up the camera gear and the vlogging gear and headed for the sunflower field. I drove as quickly as allowed by law and arrived in good time about 45 minutes before sunset. I broke out the 70-200mm f/4 lens but the sun suddenly went behind the clouds I was counting on to give a good sunset. So I began to set up for the wide angle sunset shot I wanted to capture. The clouds began to light up and I captured what I was after.

On Columbus Day 2018 I decided to sail on over to the local sunflower farm. I was hoping for a killer sunset as there were broken clouds in the sky. As I pulled into the parking area for the sunflower fields all looked good, it was everything I had hoped for. But as soon as I paid my admission fee the sun went behind the clouds and never reappeared. But I was able to play around with the sunflowers for several hours before it was time to head home.

Alone ~ A Sailboat On A Sea Of Grey

Here is the second shot from Havre de Grace, MD that I took the other day. It too is a black and white, it was a black and white kind of morning I suppose. I really like in this black and white how I was able to edit the balance to make the sea and the sky a very similar color. It helped that they were a very close shade of orange to begin with! But my vision for this photo was to have a boat on a canvas of nothing. The boat makes for a very strong subject because of how dark it was so the background can almost be lost to the eye.

Afloat In Havre de Grace ~ Big Things On The Horizon

Another sleepless night made getting up for sunrise easy. I decided to go up to Havre de Grace, MD and see what was going on. I had not been to this location for several years. I arrived at Concord Point just before the sky began to glow. The sunrise was nice but the golden hour was great. I found this sailboat anchored just off shore and I was able to line it up with the glow in the sky. But in the end I decided to flip it to black and white.
