I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
A lone white ibis stands silhouetted in the marsh pond. Although it is winter, the setting sun warms the scene in orange and golden light.
Molto suggestiva, uno scatto che fa sognare caro Phil!!!
Sono molto felice ti è piaciuto la foto grazie Pat!

Full value for the colour there. Wonderful.
Sometimes it works out when I’m there at that time of evening, and a willing subject is there as well.

Hey thanks Jan I appreciate it.
Who says you can’t get fantastic sunsets on the East Coast. You sure prove that one wrong!
Oh we get some amazing sinsets which I get to see and photograph often when shooting weather for the TV news.
This is superb, Phil. The Ibis surrounded by the rich warm light and the concentric waves is just plain lovely.
I’m very happy you enjoyed this pic Steve, thanks!
The timing, in terms of being there precisely when you could get this shot, must have been crucial. I’m at a loss for words. It is stunning.
Well I let Mother Nature and the ibis do all the work, I just snap the photo. 😀
WOW, Phil…that is STUNNING! Absolutely LOVE it! 😀 Fantastic work.

Honeymoon in Beautiful Vagamon
Thanks for checking out the photo.
Exquisite beauty! Especially love the circle of ripples and how the lucky Ibis just so happened to be in the middle.
Wow thank you! The ibis had just splashed a bit in the water, that’s what created the ripples. Lucky for me he did that. 🙂

I’ve just left a review of your blog on Otto’s post :). Did you hear what happened to me in Round 5? I wrote a piece about that…. This photo is something I would happily hang on my wall! BEAUTIFUL!!!
I never knew what happened with that in Round 5 I just read about it now.
I’ve had some health issues the past several weeks and have not be able to get at the blogs the way I would like.
I have been trying to keep things somewhat normal here but it is a struggle.
