Title Shadow Play
Category Gold Black and White
Location Lake Martin Preserve, Louisiana
Reason For Making the Image Cypress-Tupelo-Blackgum Swamps are forested black swamp depressions, saturated or flooded by surface groundwater at the sides of rivers or lakes, such as I found at Lake Martin Preserve in Louisiana, between Lafayette and Breaux Bridge or at Atchafalaya Basin. I visited these Tupelo swamps many times and I collected images for my in progress new portfolio, “Shadow Play”. I looked for images where the trees dropped their shadows and the light beams between the leaves created a wide variation of playful shadow-light effect on the tiny surface vegetation. I waited for the light changes and when I felt I see my imagined image, I clicked the shutter.

Lexi Nemeth – Balancing Least Bittern

Title Balancing Last Bittern
Category Gold Color
Location Anahuac NWR, Texas
Reason For Making the Image After a long, hot, busy day, travelling and photographing in Louisiana, I was delighted when we returned to one of our favorite birding spots around Shoveler Pond in Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge, Texas. We were there late afternoon and the almost setting Sun dropped a nice light to the dense reeds at the West side of the pond. We drove very slowly and looked for birds in these nice yellowish-brown reeds. Suddenly a least bittern landed to one of the reed sticks, which bended diagonally and the bird balanced on it. I liked the diagonal reed with the bird and and the vertical reeds compositional harmony. However, I knew that I do not have too much time. I composed and focused to the bird eye. I was able to take two photographs before the bird flew away. This photograph was the highlights of the day.
