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.

This morning on December 31st was somewhat not as cold as I thought it would be, but I still managed it get out to the neighborhood pond and get photos of the sunrise that morning which turned out to be fairly clear that morning which made some cool fartsy pictures that morning along with mist across the pond during sunrise conditions. I also have pictures of the mist coming across the pond as well.

Doing Mist photography during a sunrise shot is also what nature photographers want especially if it is good enough to photography but this time it was perfect conditions to photograph it during the sunrise conditions.


I was amazed at how well the mist was cooperating  that day with the sunrise conditions. I decided to use the limb on the tree as foreground element to lead you in the mist behind it which came out very nicely together.

That evening, I adventured out to my neighborhood pond again and got the same conditions as before during sunrise conditions to end the decade off on a positive note for my photography stand point of 2019.

In the case, the color were much different than the sunrise conditions that morning and the humidity was building up that afternoon , which was making excellent conditions to work with at sunset.

I got many different photographs of that sunset that night to remember the end of the last decade that just ended and hope to the same thing next year or maybe when the next decade is over in 2029.  Who knows if I will attempt it again we shall see if get the same holidays sunrise and sunset photographs in 2029 when this decade ends.

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.

Hatching of Prey Mantis!!

Hey Hey its AL back with an exciting news from my house today!  I have successfully, I have had 1 prey mantis egg sack today that hatched finally . I put 4 up in February 2020 and one hatched today which was amazing to watch and I got many pictures of them hatching from the egg sack today.
