p.1 #1 · Blastoff in fog


Saturday morning I was torn between places to shoot as we had fog and I love to do landscapes in fog. It is also about the time the oystercatcher chicks will hatch at Nickerson Beach and I did not want to miss this so I headed there. I did not find any chicks yet I did find the tern colony had grown into the hundreds as there mating season is beginning. There was bright fog over the beach, dense fog over the ocean and even some blue sky visible. With hundreds of birds in one place, all it takes is for one to panic and they all head into the air. This happened over and over in the few hours I was there. The photos Iím sharing were taken during different blastoffs.

All: D300 + 80-400 VR, 1/1000, f8, fill flash (SB910 + Better Beamer), check exif data for focal lengths

While the fog was a challenge at times, it also provided some beautiful light to work with. Iíll be sharing other images from this day and you will get to see what I mean.

Comments and suggestions welcome,

Morris

Neat set Morris. Shooting in "odd" light can be lots of fun.

#1 for me Morris, although #5 has a very soft look and is also appealing. I never know the best way to take and present group flock shots like these. Sounds like a wonderful time. Don
