Happy Monday and Happy Winter Solstice – 2015!
Today is the shortest day light of the year, which is not so good news, but the good news is that starting tomorrow the days will start getting incrementally longer daylight. 🙂
I have Ring-billed Gulls for you today. I’ve been working as often as I could on the portrait shoot I did a week ago Saturday and finally got that done yesterday morning. So after church I decided to drive down to the river to see what I could find and the only thing of interest was a bunch of Ring-billed gulls. I always enjoy photographing them and it is good practice trying to capture sharp images of them flying.
Lots of people throw out pieces of bread by the loading ramp at McDonald Park and that of course attracts a lot of gulls. So it’s a good place to sit and practice panning skills. I leaned that I’m pretty rusty so I shot a few hundred images of the gulls and sadly a lot of them were blurry. Photo specs: Nikon D4 | Nikon AF-S 200 – 500 mm SWM VR ED 5.6 lens | ISO 1,000 1/1250 sec @ f10.
Not a very nice day in this part of the world weather wise, but at least it’s not snowing. I have one more small project to finish up this morning and then I can put the portrait session to bed. I also have a project to do for Angie this morning that I’m really looking forward to. More about that later.
That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day and be careful.
