I took this one over the 4th of July weekend - a scorcher! - and the best place to be is on the water at this time of year. Even better if you're catching fresh crabs - YUM!
Great Blue Heron by Bench
This big guy sat the entire time we cruised by. I think he liked having his photograph taken!
Squawking White Heron
He got tired of our hovering and photographing him, and let us know it!
Dock in Winter
The bayou is almost lovelier in the winter than any other season, as this is when it gets quiet, with bright skies and muted colors.
Bayou Sunrise with Pelicans
I have this one blown up in my home. The light, the colors, the scene were all so magical that particular winter day. I hope you enjoy it too!
This menacing creature swam right up to our dock as we were having our home christening. Truly scary looking.
"Keep Out" Kingfisher
Since kingfishers are notoriously shy, I thought its sitting on this sign was hilariously apropos!
Please note that this was taken with my iPhone, so it likely would not enlarge well. But I was biking, and it was so beautiful, I just had to share it!
Osprey with Fish
He had just caught his dinner and was alighting on the tree to feast.
A pristine, calm day on the Bayou. Love the blue on the dock!
These birds are so majestic! And the cloud cover was stunning this day as well.
Yellow Dock in Winter
I love the time of year here when it's winter, and the trees are bare. Somehow, it all is "alive" in a different way.
Blue Dock Chair
This is another shot of this same scene, just a different time of year and set-up.
Crab Traps Dock
We passed these by one day, and they are so quintessential coastal Louisiana. The color has been taken out of it and then a little added back in. I love the effect!
Tammany Trace Bridge
A spectacular day on the Bayou, passing up to the Bridge for the Tammany Trace, a 31-mile rails-to-trails pathway.
Fisherman on the Bayou
It was a lovely sunset time for fishing on the Bayou.
Bird on City Skyline
A bright day with a stretching bird on a buoy with New Orleans skyline in the background.
