Viera Wetlands and Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge Revisited

Black skimmer in the rain
As I am sitting in front of my computer going over old slides and thinking of times in the past, while waiting until New Year's Eve for my next injection in the back open that this will take away my pain and I can get out and do more than I have been doing.

Today I started viewing some of my photos from my three week trip to Florida with my son that I did just after I retired.  All the pictures that I am going to show you today were taken with a Nikon D300s and a Sigma 150-500 lens.  All the pictures were reprocessed in light room, Photoshop, and with Topaz plug-ins.  By reprocessing the pictures I brought out more detail in them at least to my eyes and on my computer.  My computer display is calibrated with the color monki display by X-rite.  Never give up on old pictures as new programs come down the line, you can be surprised on what you can do to improve a picture.

This set of photographs were taken at the Viera wetlands, and at Merritt Island national wildlife refuge.  Right now I wish I was down there joining everybody at these locations to photograph all the wonderful wild life that are in those areas.

photographing in the rain can give you great pictures. Just be prepared and have coverings for your camera and lens.  In fact, my last trip to Costa Rica had a number of days with rain and what was still able to get wonderful pics's.
