HAPPY NEW YEARS EVERYONE!!! I HAD to get up early to try out the star mode on my new camera – well more specifically the star portrait mode. It takes a photo of someone and then another photo of the stars behind and lays the 2 images on top of each other. Of course I wanted to use JoJo as my model!
The photos got really cool – is Joey looking behind her at 2016 and then forward to 2017??
No, she was distracted by something – LOL.
After the sun came up, Kevin and I decided to make a spontaneous trip to the Conowingo Dam in Maryland to see the Bald Eagles that migrate there. I read on the facebook page that in December there were 300 there one day. They start leaving in January so I was worried how many would be there, but we weren’t disappointed. There were a bunch sitting in the trees, flying around, and fishing in the river. At one point I heard a SPLAT – Kevin informed me an eagle dropped a fish close to where I was standing – EW.
There is always a lot of people there lining the banks and railing hoping to get a good photo of an eagle – people were using everything from their iPhones to some of the most expensive cameras/lenses I have ever seen. I was using my new camera which is awesome, but definitely not for extreme zoomed in pictures of wildlife – still I got a few good shots and it was a great day hiking around eagle spotting!
Here is a video I put together from our time at the Dam – ENJOY!!
