Rookery pastoral

While I was at the Blue Heron rookery at the bottom of the Crane Hollow drive down from the World's biggest cottonwood waiting in the heat for something, no, anything to happen. I decided to go get the tripod from the back of the truck; I had left it where, if idiot drivers swung wide on the curve they would hit a tree instead of the truck. It was then that I was looking around for another =, any other shot and thought that a bit of studying might reveal another shot. You know the old saying, "Sometimes a half day's thinking can save a couple day's of work." That is something I always subscribe to and always look for.


Anyway I saw this inviting view west from the Crane Hollow Blue Heron rookery over toward the Rockies through a couple of the volunteer trees along the roadside. As I am feeling pretty self-satisfied that I already stole some shots from Fast Eddie TK that he had let slip. I always feel satisfied when that happens. Well, here is what I saw. I may get more opportunities out here at Crane Hollow yet this season. I ought to take another look at this when the trees leave out.


This is taken with the long lens and adjusted the zoom to reach out and compress this scene to the wooden fence and toward the Rockies.
