… and getting it … this Osprey had just reached the pinnacle of his reach to grab the sky … his talons still gripped the rock as he compressed his legs preparing for that intense burst of energy as the countdown to launch approached. Approximately 1/16th of a second after this shot his legs were fully extended and his wings on the way down with a very powerful beat as he went airborne and left the area we were in. Just a tiny miracle that plays and repeats itself billions of time per minute across this tiny planet … the miracle of life is on full display for all to see and it is a tenuous miracle requiring the active participation of each creature to continue life and existence for all species. Perhaps this is a reminder to us that work and participation in life is a good thing … we, and we alone are responsible for our lives … life lessons passed on to me by my parents.
The calendars have arrived and I will be spending the weekend getting them shipped, along with the greeting cards and books that have also sold. This is the final year for production of the calendar and I will not be reordering them. There are only 12 calendars left, so if you would like to purchase one, go to: https://store18482104.ecwid.
Leaving for the lake again in not many hours, so time to shut it down for the day and week. Enjoy the day and live it … the only one you are guaranteed … at least the moment you find yourself in.
The easiest way to reach Mr. Grussing is by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition to sales of photographs already taken Ted does special shoots for patrons on request and also does air-to-air photography for those who want photographs of their airplanes in flight. All special photographic sessions are billed on an hourly basis.
Ted also does one-on-one workshops for those interested in learning the techniques he uses. By special arrangement Ted will do one-on-one aerial photography workshops which will include actual photo sessions in the air.
