It’s been crazy busy here, and I’m sorry to say that in the next couple weeks my posts will dwindle a bit because of this. Life happens sometimes! I’ll try to keep current by either reblogging or posting a pic here and there, if I can manage to take one that is.
Yesterday I did manage to get a shot of some turkeys that were gobbling and standing on the side of the street near our house. I think these males are trying to attract a female. Hmm…I hope they weren’t eying me! Somehow the thought of chestnut stuffing came to mind. 😉

They were indeed huge! I swear that one was eying me lol.

Nice image, I was surprised by how much the turkey has gained in numbers in the bay area. I hope you don’t get so busy that you have to ignore your photography. I alway look forward to what you are photographing.

Thank you Tim. It can’t be helped but I will try to squeeze one in now and again. I plan on doing the Monochrome Challenge for sure. I may only miss one week.

Take some time for yourself and get on top of life. Don’t let the turkeys get you down. 🙂

Is that stuffing I smell? Be well my friend. You have a lot of admirers waiting for your beautiful art.

We’re those shots with the D7100? Super sharp!
March 27, 2014 at 5:24 pm
Yes and I always shoot in RAW. I used Adobe Bridge and then Nik Efex Color Pro 2.
March 27, 2014 at 6:41 pm
Cool! I do everything in Lightroom 5.

Excellent shot, Laura! Really super clear!
I know all about life … and when my gardens call for me, I won’t be here as much. But, I will be taking lots of photos but the question is, will I be able to put them on my blog? LOL
Take care!! xx Amy

Thank you Amy! I hope to see shots of your garden! Some day…lol.

Laura, you have no idea how I have been crawling the walls. It is so ugly out right now, all brown and died yellow. Mud. NO COLOR. And it is still so cold. I will be like a madwoman let out of prison when GREEN gets here. I feel so uninspired right now, because my strong is Nature. (sigh)
I cross all fingers and toes that what I have learned and practiced, that my pics come out as clear as yours. Honestly, just super clarity on your turkey shot. Great job!!!! xxoo, Amy

So cheeky of you to think of chestnut stuffing! I’m sure the turkeys were eyeing off each other…both of them seem good-looking 😉
March 28, 2014 at 5:38 am
I don’t see love. I just see dinner!!
March 28, 2014 at 1:16 pm
Lovely feather detail…I keep seeing references to Nik Efex Color Pro 2. Do you use it alot? There are so many tools out there to process with its hard too know if there are really helpful.
March 28, 2014 at 2:19 pm
Just quickly responding….yes I do use that a lot and I used it for this photo. 🙂

You’re a wonderful photographer. I especially like your sunsets, clouds and landscapes. You photograph, the way Albert Bierstadt painted. Really beautiful but, having said that, I also like this turkey shot too. His blue face is key. I look forward receiving your posts and, I want to thank you for following my blog too.

I’m reading your blog as I’m listening to the wild turkeys on our land! My least fav bird – probably as they raided our orchard most of the summer. Your pic is stunning by the way .. Just gorgeous. 🙂

Thank you! IMHO they’re better than the obnoxious geese though. 😉
