…morning light is magic…

Blurred BIF Silhouette

There always seems to be flocks of small shorebirds flying around near sunrise.  Caught this group doing a fly by while I was walking down the beach.   Made for an interesting blurred silhouette shot.  Cranked up the ISO to keep the shot from being a total blur.

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

1/40 sec @ F 5.6, ISO 800, evaluative metering, + 1/3 exposure compensation

  1. Really like this one Tim, The warm colors combined with the right amount of motion blur is just right.
    Good job on the capture.
