Great blue heron, Lagoon Gialova, Greece by Kalliopi Filippa

Picture Story

The lagoon of Gialova (Divari) is one of the most important wetlands in Europe.
There, I choose to spend my free time photographing the various migratory birds.
On that day, I was there from the early morning hours. The difference in temperature, combined with the prevailing apnea, created a light fog in the landscape.
The scene in my imagination was ready. I just waited patiently for them to appear.
As time went on, the colours and conditions changed, until the right time when the first sunbeams began to appear and the great blue heron eventually appeared into my scene.
He sat proudly to warm himself and it was as if he was gazing at the incredible beauty around him.
I managed to get the shot I wanted, although time was limited.
I am quite satisfied and happy that, at the end of the day, I managed to get such a photo for my portfolio!
