I stood out in the water precariously on the old beaver dam to bring the distant trees and their reflections near to the lens in this study of minimalism.

Pied-billed Grebe
Lake Arrowhead, Denville NJ
Taken this afternoon out of the living room window. Pied-billed Grebes are largely migratory in New Jersey, appearing mostly in the colder months. This Grebe was keeping pace with a small group of Mallards but was actively diving for prey.

Elevated Camera on Tripod for Landscape Photography

Filmed at Silas Condict County Park in Kinnelon NJ. A great facility administered by the Morris County Park Commission.

This morning I was using an elevated handheld tripod technique to remove perspective distortion from my landscape photography.

It helps to have a lightweight setup and strong tripod for this technique.
