Today we were walking along the banks of the Petaluma River looking for birds, when we came across this friendly couple looking like they were doing the same thing.
There’s an old railroad trestle that runs along the river here in Petaluma. For the most part its underpinnings are inaccessible to camera toting folks. However, there’s one spot where one can see underneath it and yesterday the midday sun lit up this mass of rocks and rotting pilings. I like this jumble composition and wondered whether it would look better in black and white but when I tried it, I really missed the blue.
Here’s three photographs I took of a flock of vultures sitting on pilings along the Petaluma River. These big birds are just flat ugly as creatures but there was something powerful and, dare I say, even majestic about this gathering.
