I love photographing Great Blue Herons in the James River when the water level is higher than normal. In moderate flood stages, the Herons have to fish from the river banks rather than their normal positions in the middle of the river. This provides me with more opportunities to find areas of the river near the banks that can serve as backdrops against which to photograph these remarkable birds. They can stand so still while waiting for a fish to swim within striking distance, that I’m frequently able to utilize relatively long exposures to blur the motion of the river while capturing the bird in perfect focus. When the light also cooperates, in this case its dappled light shining through nearby trees, magic results.

“The Stillness” was created on May 24, 2018.

The print is matted with a double mat of 4-ply archival white cotton rag. The glazing is Acrylite acrylic, so there is no risk of glass breaking during shipment. The print is protected with Hahnemuhle Protective Spray. This fully archival product will bring enjoyment for generations.
