I had a pre-wedding meeting with some clients this morning in Hamilton and when I left I decided to pay a quick visit to Waterdown falls. The falls was completely frozen over and I found it difficult to find any inspiration. As I stood struggling to decide what to do with the ice in front of me I spotted two Eastern Bluebirds flying around the area.
I was lucky enough to have my Sigma 50-500mm lens with me but was unprepared for the little birds. I crouched and shuffled as close as I dared but they were still out of reach. Perched on a precipice with only the river encased in ice below to break my fall there was no where to get a great angle.
They of course were unhelpful in any way, as birds often are. Every time I decided to get a little closer they flew further away. It was then that I realized I should just call it quits and enjoy their company rather than shoot. Sometimes it’s best to put the camera down and feel nature enfold around you.
