Flight of the white

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 29 February 2016 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Great White Egret in flight, I don't usually do monochrome images of wildlife but played with the processing of this one and was pleased with the results

Canon EOS 60D 1/2500 second F/8.0 ISO 400 600 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

So zen. Love the whiteness of the whole. And the delicate drawing-like lines here & there. Subtil like a spirit passing by (or is it flying by ? ;)
Pure beauty Nature offers. Converting it in monochrome sure enhances it. Good inspiration, Doug*
