    Another wonderful shot Ken. This series is one of my favourites! Beautiful composition, colour, and moment!

  • Thank you! I’m re-working a bunch of these for an art show I’m presenting in June. One of these shots just won a grand prize in a photo contest at the University of Oregon.

    Well done Ken!!! I KNEW they were winners as soon as i saw them! Are you presenting them as a series? They are so wonderful and i wish you every success with them!

  • Thank you again, Alex. This session was a real gift to me as observer, it was as if the swallows let me peek for a few moments into their daily world. So the shots that turned out well I am caring for as if they were a collection of gold coins, though not for the monetary consequences, but as gems that I am privileged to be a part of as photographer and designer. I was invited by a major local art gallery to have an exclusive showing for the month of June. I have the license to show all one subject or to make it a variety showing. I will probably limit the show to winged subjects, birds and dragonflies. But the swallows may take up one large section of the wall that I have for the show. I’ll keep you posted of how the show goes. If you happen to be in Oregon in June of this year, come to Springfield for the show!

    This is such an awesome shot!
    I am very fond of swallows-we have little blue ones here in Auckland NZ!
    They are very quick-to shot them flying!
    I do love your capture!
