01/11/16 Peregrine Falcons

Posted: January 18, 2016 in Uncategorized

High above the Hudson River on the cliffs along the Palisades, lives a pair of Peregrine Falcons. Thanks to a heads up from friend and photographer, Joe Gilozzo, I took a ride and hoped to find the falcons. After scanning the cliffs, there they were in all their glory sitting on a perch several hundred feet above the Hudson River. It was quite a thrill for me to see these beautiful birds close up through my telephoto lens. I spent several hours watching them, but eventually the cold and wind forced me to call it a day. It was a pretty exciting day for this photographer.

  2. Simply stunning, Ray — leave it to you to find them in personality mode as well as the usual formidable aura we love and honor — and then to give us the setting — that picture alone is a masterpiece! thrilled c
