The Story

I found this bird while hiking a local wetland trail. It was about 2pm on a hot June afternoon. The sun was shining straight down on the sleeping bird and everything in the brush filled background and swampy foreground was in the shadows, yet still very visible in the original raw image. I didn't know at the time that the sun was in the perfect spot to get a perfect reflection. As I worked with what appeared to be a fairly ordinary photograph, I began to evolve a workflow that would unwittingly lead to an astonishing image and the first in a series entitled "Color on Black."
