Hawk under the moon   Leave a comment

Saw this hawk looking for prey at sunrise behind our house. Here are two different takes on that scene, both shot with my iPhone, but one with the Hipstamatic app.

Frosty leaves   Leave a comment

Captured these on a cold morning while walking our dog.  I love how the frost gives everything a bit of additional texture, which stands out especially strong when the light is low during sunrise.

Lonely tree at sunrise   Leave a comment

This tree feels so lost and lonesome to me every time I walk past it while I’m taking the dog out. Captured in the marsh near Clinton Harbor.

Hawk hunting at dawn   3 comments

Captured this Red-tailed Hawk as he was surveying the field behind our house for his breakfast during sunrise. The other images were shot after I followed him to a tree that allowed me to get closer.

And this is the one when he finally had enough:
