Take Off

cormorant 2.0

These days I’m taking some time off-line here and there, to be still and dry my feathers for whatever dive or flight is next on the agenda.

In the meantime, here is the flight of the cormorant.  Turns out, having a photographer-dad has its perks – one of which in spotting a great shot.

I LOVE shooting birds for my boy!!! (He can’t hold binoculars, so I got a long-range lens to help him out).  He is making a birder of me!

We both very enjoyed watching the cormorants sun on the dock every morning over thanksgiving, and of course, this magnificent scene!  Many thanks to Dad for spotting it!

  1. Miriam,

    I don’t know if photography is what you do for a living but if you don’t you really should. The other day I was thinking that if she does not take photos for a living she should she is wonderful at it. The photos are full of awe, they are beautiful, inspiring, and storytelling. This blog entry really told me that I needed to let you know that you have a gift and if you are not seeking a way to make a living through it I pray you would consider it through prayer and reflection. You would make a great photographer for special needs families because you know what it takes to get that perfect shot. Your nature shots are awesome as well. You have so many avenues that you could take with your photography I could make a list of way I see you being able to use your gift. But of course there is that whole thing I have heard from so many of my friends: It is a hobby and if I made it into a career I would probably ended up not liking it anymore. If that is the case with you then I really understand you not going down that avenue. I just wanted to let you know above all that your photography work is fantastic.

    love and blessings, Aneta

    * 1 John 4:9,10,17-19 In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. 10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins… 17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. 19 We love Him because He first loved us. *

    • Thanks so much for your encouragement, Aneta! It is actually something I’ve been considering and praying about lately! We’ll see where it goes! Hugs and prayers for you and yours too!
