One Eagle, Two Eagles


Great Catch!

Through My Lens

We went out to photograph the eagle again one night this week.  When we got there, it was perched on top of one of the trees surrounding the pond.  Within about 10 minutes, I was excited to see its mate make a couple of swoops through the area and then land on the tree with its mate. Eagles mate for life and this couple sat atop the tree for about 45 minutes before on of them moved to another tree.

As is true in many other bird species, the female eagle is larger than the male eagle.  From what the park caretakers told us, this couple has a youngster in a nest somewhere nearby.

I was able to test out a Sigma 150-500mm lens on these birds and I love, love, love the lens.  I can’t wait to go back and take more photos.

SF Photowalk – Your Vote Requested


Laura Macky Photography

This image was shot with my 14-24mm lens.  I haven’t used it all that much but when I do, I realize I need to use it more.  It definitely provides a unique look that my other lenses don’t.  I’ve processed it in color and black and white and would love to know which one you like best and would really appreciate the vote in the poll I’ve included at the bottom.

Deer In The Yard – Excerpt From A Photo Shoot


thewallgalleryblog

I wanted to share a photograph from a series I did when I was visiting family in Iowa. Being the avid hiker, I was hiking along the banks of a river and then up into the dense hilly woods that line the river. My family lives on the edge of the woods up in the hills in a neighborhood where this site is very common year around. I can’t tell you the amount of times I have watched numerous deer wander across yards without any hesitation. In this particular shot, I was coming out of the woods into the yard when I saw this lone deer pondering whether they wanted to come out into the open or not. I startled him (or her), but since I always have my camera on me when I hike, I got a series of shots and have posted this one in my Color Photography…

T.H.A.N.K. You…

A few years ago I was introduced to the idea of a “gratitude rock”.  First you find a rock that is interesting or attractive to you.  You then place the rock by your bed on your nightstand and each night you hold the rock in your hands and think of as many things as you can that you are grateful for for that day.  It really gets you into a positive mindset before going to bed and plants a seed that your life is abundant.  The more you use your rock, the more your seeds will grow.  You will find your attitude becoming more positive even in the daytime.  Bad days become a little less heavy when you actively search for the good each night.  Give it a try!
