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.
As both the day and the sun begin to wind down, a brown pelican is silhouetted by late afternoon light as it fishes in the marsh pond.
Beautiful Shot, his wings look transparent, great photography and photographer!! Thanks Phil
I appreciate that Linda thank you. 🙂
That gold-brown light is beautiful! Wing detail, lovely. 🙂
It’s hard sometimes to make these birds look good. Glad you liked this view! 🙂
Thanks a bunch!
I live in California, and I love to stand on the shore and watch the pelicans glide and dive. Beautiful photo, as always.
We often have groups of these guys flying along the beach here, sometimes over the water, and sometimes over the beach. Thanks!
A golden pelican, what a great light and a wonderful picture 🙂
Happy new year Phil 🙂
I’m very happy you liked seeing the pelican Sophie, thanks!
Your sight is so beautiful, Phil (so is the picture!).
Sorry, Phil, meant to say your light is so beautiful! Although, come to think of it ………..!
Heh heh, thanks so much Maggie. 🙂
Forgot to tell you – when I said the other day that the birds were feeding heavily and I thought bad weather was coming – we have had fierce gales for the past two day!
I don’t know how they do it but they ‘know’. Better then us watching the weather reports on telly. 🙂
Wonderful shot, love the lighting, so pretty !
I appreciate the kind comment, thank you!
That light on the wing really is “warm” light.
Yeah that was my favorite part of the photo. Glad you noticed that aspect, thanks.
Love how you used the backlighting to give your photo interest and make it unique.
Thanks for noticing that Charlie, I appreciate it.
