The grace of Florida’s Great Egrets is simply amazing. While I was in Florida for the winter art fairs I had time to spend in St Augustine, the oldest city in the United States. The rookery where I spent most of the week was wonderful and allowed me to enjoy the spring nesting rituals of the Great Egrets and several other Florida birds.
Great Egrets – St Augustine, Florida
This nesting pair of Great Egrets reminded me of an oriental painting. By using the Canvas setting in the Texture pallet in the Filter Gallery of Photoshop CS6 I was able to give this image the feel of an Oriental Painting.
