Winter Birding Along the Lake

The AnnaLift this week encouraged me to use a number of photos I took while we birded on a gray, slightly rainy afternoon on Friday in and around the harbor in Lorain. There were lots of gulls though we didn't see many of the unusual ones. Another attraction was the numbers of Common Mergansers. They are such handsome birds, but I didn't get any pictures of them, alas.

  1. This has got a 1930s Art Deco look to it. It´s partly the big font and partly the shapes. It´s beautifully composed and I like the way you´ve used a combination of straight lines and circles. Also, the blue and white with the swirls give it a definite watery feel. It looks like somewhere I´d like to be right now on a dreary winter morning.

  2. I agree with Helen, beautifully composed page, and the brushes, papers and elements you chose worked out perfectly to create your digital scrapbook page. The little photo of the lighthouse has an almost haunted feeling to it... I expect to be able to zoom in and see a ghost in one of the upper windows! Fantastic page Jean!

  3. the page. Lovely blue color which hightlghts the winter day. How brave you are to go birding on such a raining cold day. Definitely you two are diehard birders!
