The Dreamers Conference – Riverstone Church

I wanted to show off some of these photos from the recent conference I photographed….My good Cory Hallett has an incredible dream to see a generation of young people pursue the heart of God….He and many others in the Cobb county area are praying for a spiritual revival to sweep their county…One of the ways they are encouraging students and adults is through this conference….Here are just a couple of my personal favorites from the weekend…..

A Man & his Bird – Uncle Joey

Over the thanksgiving break I had the opportunity to do one of the most amazing things.  My Uncle Joey is a falconer (use of trained birds of prey to catch game). He actually has a hawk that he hunts with….I have always enjoyed hunting with him….It is amazing to watch a bird of prey hunt with a human….Joey has had this hawk now for a few weeks and we took him out on his second official hunt…..The wind was blowing so we were not really expecting to see any squirrels much less catch one….Well this hawk proved us both wrong…

I brought along my camera with the 2.8f 70-200 mm IS USM lens attached and captured some pics of the hunt and kill…

Then a few of just Joey and his bird…..


The hawk is looking for the prey as Joey tries to get a squirrel to run…

Well the squirrel ran and the hawk pounced on him….
This all happened so fast….
