Though I originally went to Big Beef Creek/Seabeck to photograph the Bald Eagles that fellow photographers were repeatedly telling me about, I love photographing the Great Blue Herons as much as I do the eagles. I see Great Blue Herons everywhere but I think the water is the perfect setting for photographing them.
Whether it’s early morning light with its warm colors,
mid-day sunlight with its brilliant blues and grays,
or the soft light of overcast skies
it’s hard not to get a good shot with the Puget Sound as a backdrop.
