Head on Ring-billed Gull in a snow storm – Nikon D500, f7.1, 1/2000, ISO 1000, +1.0 EV, Nikkor 500mm VR with 1.4x TC, natural light
So… yesterday morning I mentioned that it was 57°F when I woke up and that the temperature was unusually warm for this time of the year. This morning is far more typical at 32°F and believe it or not there is snow on the ground. Lots of snow. About 8 to 9 inches of snow and it is still falling. This is our first “real” snow fall of this winter and I hope the mountains are getting dumped on heavily too. Maybe we will get a little bit of winter after all in the Salt Lake Valley, it sure hadn’t felt that way until last evening when I saw the snow start falling.
This portrait of a head on Ring-billed Gull in a snow storm was taken 364 days ago at a local pond near home and I liked it because the gull looks a touch grumpy. Of course the bird isn’t grumpy at all but it sure does look that way.
I am hoping to be able to get out and take photos this morning even if it is just a quick trip down to the local pond because it feels so good to see snow on the ground plus I love having big, fluffy snowflakes in photos with the birds I photograph during winter.
Life is good.
