Fridays seem to require something a little different. More fun. Extra embellishment. It’s important as a photographer and artist to try different things, get out of your comfort zone, make and share something new.
So today I want to share with you my painted snowy egret. I made this photograph at the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge in Florida.
These birds are so splendidly graceful. They stand in statuesque silence until suddenly the wings are raised and they leap into the air, soaring and swooping overhead. I like the way the painterly look emphasizes the elegance of the bird.
The image was processing using Corel Paint to achieve the classical oil painting look.
