We got some snow overnight so Monday morning I got out to do some shooting. Winter is truly here in the St. Louis region with the temps only in the single digits. I saw this leaf lying in the pristine snow and had to take a photo. Decided I wanted to convert it to black and white.
We haven’t had as many Bald Eagles as usual in the St. Louis area this winter for some reason. But the last week has been very cold, the Mississippi River has been frozen so I decided to try my luck between Alton & Grafton. The eagles were cooperating and I was able to get a few decent shots so the year hasn’t been a total bust.
