A Moment This Week


Gliding above the trail
Hitching a ride on the springlike currents


 Softly landing on a pine limb
Waiting for me to pass.

  7. Looks painted, Jim. I can't believe you're still having early spring. I'm in the city for the weekend. A balmy 50 degrees here!

    1. Our days are numbered here Barb! Snow for tomorrow and our 'thaw' will be but a memory!
      Enjoy your balmy city weather and rest up before you 'hit the slopes' again! Have a great weekend.

    1. Hi Bobbi! The light was so bright behind him that everything was silhouetted.....a solid wall of black and gray/blues.

  9. I really like the photo effects you added, Jim! It gives a lot of depth to the photo. Birds are so hard to capture. His pose makes you look up and wonder what it is seeing! Well done!

    1. Hi Louise. I used a 'posterizing' effect here and as you said this edit effect shows depth in the composition. Since I don't like to crop a photo unless I really have to, I get OCD when I am 'framing' the shot with my camera........it's all about the composition.
      I think this crow was was just ignoring me as best he could! lol
