Hey Hey its AL from the 2019 end of the decade studios just kidding. I wanted to do another abstract for the end of the month this year.

The final sunrise & Sunset of 2019

This is the end of the sunrise and sunset shots I did for the final day of 2019 and for the final of the decade which was very cool to do . I have now done, the sunrise on Christmas Day and new years eve which was very cool to do because I had those two holidays off from work.

Birding Story 9

Hey Hey its Birding stories number 9 and almost the end of 2019 wahoo. Today the story is about a Northern Mockingbird that I also photographed at my neighborhood pond. This northern Mockingbird, landed on a branch and posed for me while I was getting pictures of it and suddenly it flew off to another tree branch and I continued to get more pictures of this bird while It was doing some behaviors that these kinds of birds have during the winter months.

Christmas Morning Sunrise

Merry Christmas Everyone from the Sunrise studios at Wellesley Place, Just Kidding. I was finally able to get up early for sunrise conditions on Christmas morning this year and got some really amazing photographs of sunrise on Christmas Day. I had to underexpose to keep the colors the way they were producing during sunrise conditions. It was somewhat cold that morning and I still adventured out and got some bird pictures along with the sunrise that day. I will be doing another one on December 31st to end 2019 and riding in the new year with a sunrise shot to start off 2020.

Birding story 8

Hey Hey its Al with Birding stories on this wonderful December day. Lets see what Al picks out for this story time. Oh lets see what Al has picked out for this birding story time this week. Oh its A tufted Titmouse! The story goes I was walking around my neighborhood pond to see what kind of birds I would photograph and spot today at the pond while I was enjoying the outside weather. I came along and spotted this Tufted Titmouse on a branch , that had landed there and I had the pop-runtimes to take the photographs I wanted of it. Then all of sudden it flew away to another tree a short distance away and I continued getting pictures of it. Then  it finally decided to fly into a higher branch on a another tree which I couldn't get anymore photographs of this tufted titmouse.
