Sometimes we all need a solitude, even this Great Egret standing in a few inches of cold, blue water in a Texas bayou. Even a photographer with a wife and four daughters needs a little time in the field with nothing but a camera, a lens and a windy afternoon. To wander. To reflect. And to capture the beauty of God’s creatures to share with his friends near and far.
Solitude – Brazos Bend State Park, Texas
