Good Photos Challenge Day 5 - From a Low Angle
30 Day Good Photos Challenge, Day 5 - From a Low Angle
Every year the robins build their raggedy nests in the viburnum in front of the house. To get this "from a low angle" I had to position a stepladder underneath and then climb it backwards to shoot from below. I'm amazed that the nest stays put through the nesting season. It doesn't seem that securely positioned from below.
By the way, I never thought of photography as an extreme sport but might have to change my opinion! When positioning the ladder to get this shot, I pinched my fingers in the hinge. Ouch! In about a week I may be sharing photos of black 'n blue fingernails, I fear. . .
