Trumpeter Swans (Cygnus buccinator): Morning Fog by 

Foggy mornings present opportunities to experiment with high key exposures. It’s comparable to drawing on paper with charcoal or conte crayon. Crows, magpies, swans, Goldeneyes, Buffleheads, Ring-necked Ducks, Scaups, etc. have the strong blacks which make for bold contrast against a high key background.

As a HS teacher I conducted an annual ornithology class where I took students on field trips to places like the Lower Klamath NWR. Upon retirement I took up bird photography after reading Arthur Morris’s book The Art of Bird Photography. Currently, I have been strongly influenced by the work of landscape and HDR photographers like Robert Rodriguez Jr. and Trey Ratcliff.
