This is a blue heron on the Trinity river.  They are large and beautiful birds, very majestic.  When they fly it is spectacular.  Herons and cranes are often feeding here, also ducks, and geese.   But the blue heron is one of our favorites.  It was a favorite especially of my mother.  Since she passed, I have seen the blue heron often.  The bird always amazes me.

 

 

Click below to and you can hear the call of the great blue heron.  I hear them sometimes and at night too. They have a croaking call, it can be quite loud too.

Blue herons are large wading birds.  The ones around here startle very easily and they won’t let you get very close.

Rainbow in Trinity County, Old Photographs

This is a great old rainbow photograph that my mother took many years ago. I scanned the photograph and then altered it in Photoshop. I used the patch tool, from the source, to get rid of the power line. Then using the clone stamp to get rid of the sun spot.

I could have also taken out the stop sign but I rather liked it in the photograph. Here are both photographs.

Trinity River, Trinity County California



The Trinity river is so full right now. It was so green and very fast moving. It has gone down a little since these photos were taken. It looks very cold.

Trinity river, spring time flows.
