Loons in Light

It is the season when the Loons gather to feed at the mouth of the Mousam River, especially where Back Creek comes in, just behind the dunes at Parson’s Beach. It is also just the turn of season when the light is beginning to look like spring. This is a flood tide (we have had a lot of them due to storms lately). Beyond the dunes the ocean was roaring, but here in Back Creek, all you see is a particularly strong tidal surge troubling the high water… making for interesting reflections. That, and the Loons. For full effect you need to view the image at larger sizes by clicking the image to open at WideEyedInWonder. It should open in the largest size you can view on your monitor, but if not, use the size controls across the top of the screen.

Canon SX20IS at about 125mm equivalent. F4.5 @ 1/400th @ ISO 80. Landscape program.

In Lightroom, some Recovery for the sky. Just a touch of Fill Light for the foreground. Added Clarity and just a bit of Vibrance. Sharpen landscape preset. Cropped from the bottom for composition.

From Around Home 2010.
