Another Decade goes by with a trace

Hey Hey its Al with a special edition of the end of this decade for a special edition on my blog this year. So I have decided to the best 10 photographs of the past ten years of this decade get it.



Summer 2010: This is a picture of the Grand Canyons in Arizona that I took in 2010. I was on vacation for week there and got many pictures of the area and relaxed a lot and enjoyed seeing the red rockies of the west.









Fall 2011:  on Cape Cod was a great time to take photos of fall foliage in New England because It came earlier than North Carolina that year.











2012: This was a sunset picture I took in  at Cape Cod on beach when the sunset conditions were perfect that day to do this.










FALL 2013: This is very cool tree that used to be in front of my mothers house but had to be cut down a few years because it had fall down on the street below.










Winter 2014: Had an amazing snowstorm that I could photograph the days after it had hit and got some amazing pictures of the snow.










Winter 2015: Another tremendous snowstorm that brought us almost 2 feet of snow during that snowstorm, which I enjoyed photographing after it had stopped snowing.







Summer 2016: My very first copperhead picture in the wild that I took at Duke forest with my mentor











November 2017: Sunset on Carolina Beach was very interesting that Day in November. Conditions were quite overcast for the sunset conditions but I still managed to get some colors of the sunset.












April 2018: Late spring due to cold winter conditions but still managed to get this osprey photograph at Jordan Lake.
















Finally in 2019: Catching my first Bald Eagle picture ever at Jordan Lake which my mentor never got the pictures of this bald eagle at Jordan Lake that Day.










Thats a wrap up of my favorite top ten photographs for this decade.Hope you guys enjoy this memorable decade of photographs that are on my blog, which Al D does not know about this special edition on my blog or does he. Maybe he has no clue what photographs I posted for this special edition of the past decade. We shall see if he does one or not.  Tomorrow in 2020, starts the next decade!

Right Sunrise conditions at Jordan Lake plus good birds

Today I did a sunrise shot with my photography mentor who seemed to be chimping some open his photos today.




This is a Great Blue Heron I took during the sunrise at Jordan Lake Today. We spotted a pair of them doing territorial stand offs which was impressive to photograph today as well.

This was the when the territorials between the two Great Blue Herons were fighting between which territory belonged to them. I got many good shots of this.


This is also a pair of Black Voltures that seemed to be enjoying this beautiful morning grooming and just hanging around the side of Jordan Lake which I also got many shots of them doing their grooming styles for the day.


The other photos I got included a swallowtail butterfly, bees  and a new stump I got there today.
Here is a bee on the same flower that before the swallowtail was on.
Heres the swallowtail on flower that the bee was on.
