Railroad Bridge with Great Blue Heron

On February 2nd 2012 I went to the area just downstream from the Chickamauga Dam and made this picture of the Railroad Bridge that goes across the Tennessee River there. You can see three Great Blue Heron perched along the bridge. I thought this was an interesting angle.

I set the aperture to F/22 for maximum depth of field. I wanted all of the pilings to be in focus as well as the Heron and the steel structure above the tracks. I like the way it turned out.

Thanks for visiting my blog!

    There is a fouth Heron on the top of one of the pilings. It’s tough to see without looking at the full size version.
