…morning light is magic…

Busy Flight Line

This Black Skimmer had to dodge some of the local ground traffic as he was buzzing the tower. ” Talk to me Goose”….

Another photo from my most excellent Skimmer adventure with Matt and Susan.  Focused on this one from a distance as he was flying with two other Skimmers.  When the 1DX locks on focus it doesn’t let go.  This was photo #32 out of 37 shots of him, all of which were in focus.  Some minor cropping to the wide format.

Taken with Canon IDX and Canon 500mm F4 IS II with 1.4X III teleconverter mounted on Skimmer ground pod

1/1600 sec @ F5.6, ISO 4000, evaluative metering, +1 exposure compensation

  1. That is a great lock on. Could easily shift to the other bird.

  2. It works much better than my old 7D. I’m sure that the new 7D is a good improvement over the old version.
