As we close out 2013 and begin a new year, I always enjoy looking back through my photography adventures from the last year. 2013 was very good to me photographically and here is a quick recap through the year. Click on the images to view larger.
January treated me to some wonderful opportunities at the Viera Wetlands. I had a couple of mornings where the rising sun silhouetted the nesting Great Blue Herons on the nests. This image is a composite that I put together from one of those mornings.
These two herons courting each other was another of my favorites.
February offered some wonderful opportunities to photograph Great-horned Owl chicks in their nests.
I also found out that an image I had taken in May of 2012 (below) had won first place in Digital Photo magazines annual Your Best Shot photo contest. I didn’t know it at the time, but this was just the first indication that 2013 was going to be a fantastic year for me.
March gave me several different subjects to choose from. From great sunrises, to Sandhill Crane chicks, to Ospreys, to Snail Kites and shorebirds, March generated a lot of great opportunities.
In my next post, I’ll highlight some of my images from April – June 2013.
