Hello every one, it's bean a couple of weeks séance my last post but I'm still hear. Things are fine and I'm looking forwards to the onset of spring in Binghamton NY. Today I'm sharing some images of a foggy March 10th night on the Chenango River that I thought were pretty cool. Me and my oldest son (MCD) took a midnight wake to play with our cameras for nether one of us have really done any night shooting that amounted to anything before and we were queries. Well, to get started: The top image and the next one are of the Exchange Street Bridge looking up stream from the rivers edge. The third images is of the Washington Street Bridge. The one after that is the Rt 434 Crossing Bridge, that is one of the main artery of traffic in the Binghamton and Vestal area. The last image is of the old Crowley's Dairy Plant as it sits next to the river with the tall chimney.
A Red-tail Hawk that I found along the river that was harassing some Buff Ducks that were in the water. I think I took this shot on the tenth of this month, a week and a half ago maybe. The Buff Ducks moved on but the hawk is still hear. Bufflehead Ducks image #1. I just cannot get close enough to these little one to get good shoots for my self. The red-tail definitely got closer to them then I can.
Tonight I thought that I would share more resent bird shoot that I've taken in the last couple of weeks. This flyby shoot is of a male Common Merganser that was flying over the river maybe two weeks ago on one of my walks. A graceful fast flying bird that loves diving under the water for morsels to eat.
