In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Monochromatic.”
The first cool breeze of fall brought in a Great Egret.
The tip from Jen Hooks’ photo prompt that helped me the most was the one about making sure you have a focal point in monochromatic pictures. The egret provided a perfect focal point in the sea of Pineywoods green.
I think this next picture has a really nice composition, with the movement of the flying egret, its reflection in the water below, and the Little Blue on the right providing the third point of a triangle, but sadly, the picture is not in focus. Maybe someday I will do an illustration based on it.
These pictures were taken with a Canon Powershot SX60 HS.
