Congratulations to Plinian for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 7 votes - View Previous Winners


After seeing so many great images posted here by the locals (you know who you are), I finally had a chance to visit Nickerson Beach. Big thanks to Greg Gard for his generous and thoughtful advice and blog. Common Terns from the morning; American Oystercatchers from the afternoon. Comments/criticism/advice always appreciated.

This is a beautiful set, Greg! Your eye for comps, solid technicals, and patience for the right light and interesting poses are all on full display here. Top marks, all around!

Beautifle set Greg. Now you see why I love the place. I have not had the opportunity to visit in a few weeks and your great photos make me miss the place.

Thanks, Karen! I feel your pain--shorebird photography in northern Alabama is something of an oxymoron. But Nickerson is about a 20 min drive from JFK (when there's no traffic of course).

Morris, I still remember learning about this place the first time from one of your posts! My only regret is that I saw lots of birds but no FM friends!

Excellent collection.
And excellent collection on your website too.
This is a Tree Cholla (the deadliest cactus) not Prickly Pear by the way: https://1x.com/photo/1366610/all:user:223190

It just goes to show what proper technique, exposure and use of equipment and talent can produce!

These are excellent images in every way, nice work and you have earned my vote Greg However it would be nice to see something of a comp with more environment for me..........

Lovely work
Karl
