Artist's Description

Fascinated by the contrast and reflections, I photographed this graceful egret as it strolled slowly through a shallow pond at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens at Mount Coot-tha (Queensland, Australia) during a visit with my sister some years ago. The image title refers to a spiritual said to be part of the Underground Railroad codes used to help slaves escape (see YouTube link below for a wonderful version of the spiritual as sung by the Blind Boys of Alabama). (Olympus E-300 & Zuiko 40-150mm zoom at 141mm [equivalent to 282mm in full-frame 35mm], f/4.5, 1/200 sec., ISO 100, open shade, handheld)

Dedicated to my sister, who is also a photographer. We understand each other. :)
