Contrast in Color

2014-02-13 Cardinal Landing

Every so often I get really lucky taking pictures. This cardinal landing on the ground was actually at the bottom-most area of a picture I’d taken. He just happened to float into the view finder as I was clicking the shutter. I cropped him as proportionally as I could against the edge of the photo, but wanted to still try to keep a neat sense of background and have it be ever-so-slightly off-center. These are my happiest kinds of photos ; little surprise easter eggs on your memory card.

Cardinals and other brightly colored birds really pop in snow photos – such a joy to be able to watch and photograph. You  just can’t beat the red on white color contrast in the snow.
