This snowy egret graced the banks of the Onion Creek in Austin, Texas on a warm July morning.
I felt privileged he didn’t mind the company.
I just came across this image I captured years ago. It lived on an old hard drive and wasn’t given a second thought. This shot is pretty different from how I shoot now but I wanted to share it here because like all photographs we make, it’s part of the process. I feel like I am a better photographer because of images like this one. Being able to self critique and see what did and didn’t work here. It’s a constant learning game and I’m sure I’ll share something another 5 years from now that I’m capturing in this present time and be able to express the same sentiment.
I feel like that’s part of the beauty of art; it keeps growing and if we put enough work in, so long as we’re doing it right, we do too.
I’m feeling blessed to experience this moment as the crispness in the morning air signals the season’s change.
Capturing moments like these for clients to enjoy is an extraordinarily rewarding process.
Please let us know how we can be of service to you with your next project.
“If we are to have broad-thinking men and women of high mentality, of good physique and with a true perspective on life, we must allow our populace a communion with nature in areas of more or less wilderness condition.”
