Down by the Seashore
I drove down to Glen Cove, over to where they are going to build a huge condo development by the water. It is a huge project with more than 1,100 units planned and structures that may be as tall as eleven stories! It is way out of scale for the site and people are trying to fight such extensive development. In any case, as I walked around I suddenly spied this Great Egret wading around in the water. I used a 300mm lens, but it was a long way off, so I very slowly walked closer over about 20 minutes and got these two photographs of this elegant bird. I was really happy with the first shot. But I kept following the Egret, and when it turned around and headed in the other direction, I got a much more interesting photograph, because of all the bands of waves in the background. Which photograph is your favorite?
