Random thought's about photography, and equipment related to it.

Best Laid Plans

Hi All, 

  This last Sunday I planned on attending the Milwaukee Air Show along the lake front.  The Blue Angels were going to be their.  Besides being a great opportunity to run the Tamron 150-600mm through its paces, Place photography has intrigued me.  

  On Sunday morning at 8:30am I headed down towards the Milwaukee Lakefront, only about 15 minutes away, as I neared the lakefront you could see heavy fog still in place.  I found a place to park, and waited listening to the radios ongoing weather forecast to see if they thought it would lift.  But after  a little over an hour it was showing no signs of improving.

  Well, I decided to drive an hour north and go to the Horizon Marsh.  On arriving I lucked out, as there was a nice breeze, and no fog around.  I Walked the Southern Unit near the Town of Horizon.  Well to Dyke Rd, and the North end near Waupun.   It ended up being a great day, got some nice shots.  The image in this post was a Sandhill Crane I saw being harassed by a Red Wing Blackbird.  More o come next post.
