THANKS FOR YOUR VISITING BUT CAN I ASK YOU NOT TO FAVE AN IMAGE WITHOUT ALSO MAKING A COMMENT. MANY THANKS KEITH. ANYONE MAKING MULTIPLE FAVES WITHOUT COMMENTS WILL SIMPLY BE BLOCKED
I finally made it out to do landscape photography, but was on a business trip so photography was limited. Here, I return to Folly Beach in South Carolina, to the Summer Place, where I saw this flotilla of pelicans soaring homeward as the sun set. This photo and the South Carolina vibe are strong contrast to my photography in Florida, where lately I've been doing kiddie portraits (!!) in fine art style, and also working with major colleges and universities covering dance, theatre, and music. But not landscapes, and I am keen to go out on the road again soon!

the rain took a break yesterday and the clouds came out to play,
then last night the skies opened and it poured 'til morning, its stopped now but still quite breezy, must nip out for a walk now before it starts up again, hope you all are well.
About this time of year, the water fowl who are going to stay over start congregating in South Bay. The Swans start outnumbering the Canada Geese which usually dominate the bay near the shore line. I have no idea how many there are out there as this is only a small fraction. An audit by wildlife inspectors a few days ago counted 200 but I would dare the guess that it is closer to 500 at he moment. On a bright sunlit day they they practically glow.There are plently of ducks and Canada Geese as well.

The Canada Goose Navy was on patrol this day in one of our local parks. The first group includes 11 goslings, the most I've ever seen. The other group includes one. This will be an interesting neighborhood for awhile.

It’s not a great shot as they were all moving so fast, and not always in the same direction. Mum appeared first, then out from underneath the trees came the tiny ducklings, they can’t be very old, I counted 15. Not sure if they all belong to her as there were other ducks on the pond, but she seemed happy for them to all tag along behind.
Thank you for your visit and your comments, they are greatly appreciated.
Shake the Lake Fireworks over Lake Monona, Madison WI. Huge flotilla watching from the lake.
We have had pelican scouts earlier here on the Elk River, but this past weekend, the flotilla was in!!!
Not the sharpest of shots - i was taking some wide-angle shots in a dark, over-hung pond when i heard a row behind me and spun round to see these boys coming into land, so just had to spin some dials, shoot and hope. i like the shapes they make, the strong reflection of the shapes and the fact that are all at different stages of the landing process so it's almost like a stop frame of one bird landing.

These builds are technically old, but I've recently given them some new paint jobs!
the colours came out strangely but I was shooting into a very hot, strong and dazzling sun.
