He Has Risen – Happy Easter

In honor of Easter, a monsoon lightning thunderstorm with bolts of lightning striking behind a religious Christian cross in front of a church. Some of my lightning images I compose a head of time in my mind and some have taken up to three years to get. This image took 20 minutes. It was my shot for the summer. The church was very close to my house. The storm came in with a bang and the rest is history. Some things are meant to be. This is a black and white sepia version with a layer of texture and hand blended and toned.

Happy Easter! – Heavens Gate

Happy Easter! This shot was taken in the high elevation near Vail, colorado. It was a stormy night. At the blink of an eye,   Lightning bolts strike opening the gates to heaven... and then seconds later... it's gone.  This was one 30 second exposure image and one lightning strike forming the gates.  The rest is my Lightning fantasy composite, blakc and white selective color on this version.  Panorama fine art  lightning fantasy composite photography photograph print.

Happy Easter! This shot was taken in the high elevation near Vail, Colorado. It was a stormy night, and at the blink of an eye, Lightning bolts strike what looks like opening the gates to heaven… and then seconds later… it’s gone. This was one 30 second exposure image and one lightning strike forming the gates, four cloud to ground and one cloud to cloud. The rest is my Lightning fantasy composite, black and white selective color on this version. Panorama fine art lightning fantasy composite photography photograph print, maybe a little over the top but fun to do. Hope you like.

Thats A Lot Of Heron

A scenic view of some Colorado Great Blue Heron hanging out in their nest in the trees.  This was the first time I have seen them all in the nest at once.  They were doing some springtime nest building.

Colorado Great Blue Heron

Colorado Great Blue Heron, this species usually breeds in colonies, in trees close to lakes or other wetlands like you see in this image. Often such colonies include only Great Blue Herons, sometimes they nest alongside other species of herons. These groups are called heronry (a more specific term than "rookery"). The size of these colonies may be large, ranging between 5–500 nests per colony, with an average of approximately 160 nests per colony. Heronry are usually relatively close, usually within 4 to 5 km (2.5 to 3.1 mi), to ideal feeding spots. Great Blue Herons build a bulky stick nest, and the female lays three to six pale blue eggs. One brood is raised each year. If the nest is abandoned or destroyed, the female may lay a replacement clutch. Reproduction is negatively affected by human disturbance, particularly during the beginning of nesting. Repeated human intrusion into nesting areas often results in nest failure, with abandonment of eggs or chicks.Both parents feed the young at the nest by regurgitating food. Parent birds have been shown to consume up to four times as much food when they are feeding young chicks than when laying or incubating eggs.Eggs are incubated for around 28 days and hatch asynchronously over a period of several days. The first chick to hatch usually becomes more experienced in food handling and aggressive interactions with siblings, and so often grows more quickly than the other chicks. Predators of eggs and nestlings include turkey vultures, several corvids, hawks, bears and raccoons, the latter two also potential predators of adults. Adult herons, due to their size, have few natural predators, but can be taken by Bald Eagles, Golden Eagles and, less frequently, Great Horned Owls and Red-tailed Hawks. When predation on an adult or chick occurs at a breeding colony, the colony can be abandoned by the other birds, but this does not always occur.  Source Wikipedia.

Female American Robin

Female American Robin about to burst with her eggs. American Robins are common sights on lawns across North America, where you often see them tugging earthworms out of the ground. Robins are popular birds for their warm orange breast, cheery song, and early appearance at the end of winter.
