Day 2 of Photo Challenge- Flight

On the second day of the challenge, I looked at the clock (1pm) and then at the black clouds rolling in from the northwest. Think Suzi, Think. Hmmm…flight. Immediately I think of my recent flight to Denver. Yeah, I could go to the airport and take pictures of planes departing or even the screen announcing arrivals and departures. My next thought was, “on Saturday. Are you nuts”??

Then I remembered that just a short mile away was the confluence of the Clackamas and Willamette rivers. Clackamette Park is a favorite place to take kids to to feed the ducks, pigeons, geese, and seagulls. Perfect! I always wanted to take a picture of a duck taking flight from the water and catch the water drops. I catch a sunny break in the weather and off I go.

So I figure the best vantange point is near the water, kinda close to where the kids throwing bread crumbs will scare the birds airbourne. Hmmm…seems the birds are more hungry than scared. I am so thankful for digital as I shoot off about 87 pictures knowing that many will find themselves on the cutting room floor, so to speak. Home I go to download to my computer. Surprise!! My favorites do not include one duck. Another day perhaps.

    They are beautiful birds but sooo noisy. And you’re right. They strut around like they own the road

    Love the flight pictures. I chose a very tame hot air balloon. You did awesome work with these birds.
