DescriptionOn a windy day in Bellingham, Washington i watched this Great Blue Heron get chased out of a wildlife preserve by a family who threw a rock just to see him fly. I was astounded, but the heron didn't fly too far away. He ended up on a mud flat and i hiked out on the overpass to watch him and try to get some good photos without scaring him. I got this shot as he stepped under a bridge and a beam of sunlight broke through the clouds illuminating him against the dark water and disintegrating wooden posts. A gust of wind caught his plumage and made a graceful arc.

Eventually I became a photo journalist after publishing mainly fiction and creative non-fiction over several years. I now photograph nature, wildlife and several other genres. All digital now, and don't miss the darkroom one bit.
