…morning light is magic…

Made Audubon Top 100

A good day….

My day was made yesterday when receiving an e-mail from the Audubon Director of Photography that confirmed that I made it into the top 100 for the 2019 Audubon photo contest.  Love those e-mails!

Audubon contacted me back in mid-May requesting a raw file to confirm the photo wasn’t manipulated beyond the contest rules.  Hoped that I made the top 100 but you never know.  Had a similar experience last year with a request for my raw file but did not make it to the top 100.

Taken with Canon 1DX and Canon 500mm F4 IS II mounted on tripod with Wimberley II gimbal head

1/1600 sec @ F8, ISO 400, evaluative metering, +1/3 exposure compensation
