I've been under the weather off and on for the last week or so, so my shooting schedule has been light. But, a fire got lit under me when I learned I was one of the featured bloggers on a site called Epic Edits run by a guy I respect and listen to regularly on photography podcasts. He wrote an article about how to start up a blog and put the call out to people who are fairly new to blogging. I wrote back and said I liked his article and of course included a link to my blog. He did a followup post listing some of the blogs he got and included these nice words,
"My feed reader is almost filled to the brim, but I found several of these blogs worth adding to my list of follows. So, really… check ‘em out and welcome them to the community."
His website is:
http://blog.epicedits.com/2010/03/18/say-hi-to-the-new-photography-blogs/ and this is where he posted the kind words if you want to check it out. He's got great photo tips and articles for anyone interested in learning.
On top of that, I got some nice shots of my favorite bird today, the Great Blue Heron. I drive past their nesting area on an almost daily basis, but I never really stop to see if they are actually up there in there nests. Yep, they are there, alright. Got some shots of some "yearlings" and probably saw 20-25 herons in total.
