I used my wide angle Nikon 14-24 mm 2.8 f lens for these photographs taken at Edwin B. Forsythe NWR, except for the last one with the grasses.
My main goal at E. B. Forsythe NWR was to see some Snow Geese – mission accomplished. We also saw a Snowy Owl way off in the marsh and an immature Bald Eagle. It is so relaxing to drive around the loop with my scope and camera. The weather on Sunday was shirtsleeve warm.
On Sunday we drove down to Edwin B. Forsythe NWR in New Jersey. We stopped at the Oyster Creek Restaurant for a seafood dinner out in the wetlands on the way home. Out back there were boats camouflaged for duck hunting. In the first photograph there is a deer made of grasses in the far right. I didn’t see it until I looked closely at the photograph. I’ll be posting more in the next couple of days.
I composited three egrets and added clouds and water effects. the second with white seed filaments that look like water spray.
I took landscape photographs during a trip to look at a house on October 22, 2020 in Delaware County, New York. This gave me the perfect opportunity to replace the skies in using the new Photoshop sky replacement tool. It’s a lot faster than the old way. In the last three I reflected the sky in the water to make it more realistic.
