After feeling uninspired to shoot photos lately, I woke up this morning needing to go shoot something. I blame the energy boost followed by the good sleep that I got after seeing SB last night. I took a risk and went out to a bird sanctuary outside of town. And found…..pretty much no birds. Ok, I found a few but VERY few. Usually, there are eagles and hawks flying around, but today – nada. I had grabbed my lens I use for landscapes figuring I’d switch to that one and take landscape photos instead. I stopped, reached for it, and found it was not the lens I wanted. So no birds, no lens for landscapes, and then the final strike against this trip – my battery died in my camera. I got a few photos, but not what I had in my head. Guess I need to plan better in the future – but at least I got out there and did it.
