2016—Sepia Willet

Even though there weren’t many shore birds on the shore in Port A this year, I still managed to get some panning practice in on our morning beach walks.   Capturing flying birds in focus remains a mostly elusive goal for me but while my efforts resulted in lots of  blurry birds in flight with tack sharp ocean waves, I had a few successes, too.   This is a willet in flight.  I had to crop it slightly for composition.  The overall sepia look to the shot is from the natural colors with an overcast morning, roiling waves churning up the sand, and a brown bird.
