Lakeside Bird Watcher Gathering

Just when I thought I was about done with my photo walk, a group of bird watchers approached from the other direction.

I strolled along the eastern edge of the Billie Johnson Mountain Lakes Nature Preserve trail, just soaking in the fall vibes. I did my usual "walk, stop, set-up, capture" routine, doing my best to capture the reds, yellows, and oranges that were, like a kaleidoscope, all in the mix.

Just when I thought I was about done, a group of bird watchers approached from the other direction. They seemed excited. I assumed that they'd spotted something interesting in the trees. I felt compelled to photograph them as they chatted in the grassy area near the lakehouse.

There's a certain asymmetry to the photograph. The bird watchers are standing off to the right with most of the colourful vegetation. The blue sky and the colourful leaves on the trees contrast with the drab grey lake and the green grass. But still, it feels "right".

    You are right Khurt, the birdwatchers offer an additional element to your photo. A sense of "what are they looking at?" And a great photo to convey asymmetry. But all that aside. What a beautiful day you had.

    1. Thank you. It was a beautiful day.
