Product Description


Good Morning, Shipyard Park! May 9, 2016 by Peter A. Mello

Square 5” x 5” print with white border
Paper type: Mohawk Superfine Eggshell, 120lb

One of the things I enjoy most about rising early every morning to capture these images is how peaceful life can be on the harbor at this time of day. Occasionally, there may be a boat departing from the town wharf and there are the walkers and runners on their own daily routines that you could set a watch to. But the real interesting and beautiful activity comes from nature and May 9, 2016 was an extraordinary day.

As I walked out to set up my tripod and camera to make the morning’s image, I could hear a whooshing sound in the distance getting louder and faster. I looked up and coming right at me was a Great Blue Heron with a large fish in its beak. It flew directly over me and our house but unfortunately, my camera is normally set up for landscapes (slower shutter speeds) rather than for nature. I was only able to salvage one image free from motion blur due to the impressive speed this beautiful bird flew over me. I’ve seen the heron on several occasions flying over the harbor but never before had it flown so close that I felt like I could have almost reach out and touched it.
