…morning light is magic…

Osprey Lift Off and Landing

Made the annual trip home to NE Indiana over the last couple of weeks to visit family and pork out on the local food that I grew up with.  Good times were had by all, especially my stomach.  Was able to clear the brain cells from work which made the trip very productive.  Spent the mornings out shooting when it wasn’t raining, go figure.  Loved the cooler weather with it being in the 40’s/50’s in the morning. 

Got to see my favorite Osprey in the nest again this year.  Got these shots during take-off’s and landings with close to full frame shots.  Should have gone to manual exposure mode earlier in the shoot but finally woke up when the whites were blowing out when the spot metering was off of the bird.

Also, my 7D continues to work without any problems.  Went through about 80 gig with no error 20’s popping up.  So far, so good.

All taken with Canon 7D and 100-400 lens, hand-held, no flash
