Winter Breeze is composed of several images and textures to try to create that early morning coolness just before the moon finally goes down, when there’s still a mist on the water and a cool breeze to ruffle the Egret’s feathers.
I spent quite a chilly holiday in Florida in november and captured this Egret sitting on a fishing boat in Clearwater Marina, I don’t think he was too happy about the weather either as he was all hunched up and the wind was fluffing him up.
I edited the image in Photoshop CC and Topaz Adjust, Simplify and Detail and added the reflection at the end.
