…morning light is magic…

Great Blue Silhouette

Here is an early morning pre-dawn silhouette of a Great Blue Heron.  I typically don’t like shots of birds flying away from me but this one works because of the calm water and the wing almost touching the water.  Cropped this one as a pano just because I could.  Go figure.

Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II lens with 1.4x III teleconverter, hand-held

1/200 sec @ F5.6, ISO 800, evaluative metering, +1/3 exposure compensation, 700mm
