Behind the Image
This scene was as calming and meditative as it photographed. Standing there amongst the trees and wildlife was such a pleasure, and the reflection in the water just emphasized what I already felt.
It was a winter day, but these birds didn’t mind the chill in the air and neither did I. Being a nature photographer you learn early on that you can come across amazing scenes to photograph any time of year and really anywhere in the world.
This was taken in Maryland while on a trip to visit Washington, D.C.. There was so much natural beauty to photograph during this trip and photographs like this one help to remind me of that.
