This isn’t typical of bird photos I usually make. But when I saw a backlit Great Blue Heron standing statue-like on an old post in the river – I had to try a few photos.
I was lucky I’d mounted my long zoom lens on the full frame body I usually use for landscapes. That gave me more resolution and dynamic range to play with in post-processing than I would have had if I’d used my typical crop frame birding set up.
I don’t do many silhouettes and strictly speaking, this isn’t one since I kept some detail in the dark bird. But I like the way it turned out.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Please take care of yourselves and each other. And if you can, try something different when you make your photos. You might like how they turn out!
