Conowingo Dam

Below Conowingo dam in northeast Maryland you can often count on some good photographic opportunities.   depending on the time of year there are bald eagles in lesser or greater numbers.  And you can almost always count on the blue herons to make an appearance.

And since toll avoidance mode routes around to the Conowingo, it is a frequent stop for me.

Just before Sunset in September

You’ll almost always see a heron or 2 standing in the shallows waiting for a fish.

I post processed this one to drastically enhance the contrast and silhouette the big bird.
