Revisited – March 2013

This month’s revisited will be short and sweet in narrative.  March was a great photography month filled with all sorts of subjects.  At the moment, though, Spring is knocking a bit harder on the door.  The forecast-ed full day rain did not come to fruition.  Instead, there are blue skies and some clouds and it is 50 degrees.  It is time to get out of the house and go for a walk, a drive – something.

Here are my favorite March 2013 shots converted into black & white.  Happy Saturday all.


Shooting Swans

Last February I posted information regarding the swans in Monticello, MN:  Feb/Mar Trumpeter Swan Mating Rituals

Cyndie and I didn’t make it last year to this spectacle, but this year we did.  This is an absolute site to see.  The $10/hr./photographer for private deck access just off the water was more than worth it.

There is a public area to observe the swans adjacent to the residence with the private deck if you would rather go that route – Monticello Swan Park.  Either way, please consider making a donation to carry on what Sheila Lawrence stared.

Between my two camera’s I have a little bit over 1000 frames to look through.  I’ve gotten better at trashing the obvious non-winners.  Here are the 41 frames I kept.

Assorted Photos – 2013: Week #7

Another installment of weekly shots.  Who knew Mallards were so carnivorous?  I certainly did not.
