I’m not a bird photographer, but I gladly accept the gift of being able to make a bird photo when Mother Nature puts the feathered friends close enough to my lens. :-)
West Side “Road” is a hiking trail on Cleveland National Forest land that starts at the very end of the San Diego Country Estates area near Ramona. It’s very close to the super-popular Cedar Creek Falls trailhead – and receives very little attention.
These are the color photos that I previously mentioned, from the hike to Eagle Rock on the Pacific Crest Trail. I may have gone a little bit over the top with the processing of these. The creative processing possibilities for color infrared are almost infinite it seems – and this was about exploring them! :)
En route to a hike in the Warner Springs area, I of course had to stop at “my tree” to photograph it with Shannon‘s infrared converted camera. By now, I’ve got long exposure blends, night photos, dawn photos, storm photos, fog photos, black & white photos, color photos of that tree – there’s really not much left to add. Except for infrared. :-)
