11/24/2010: Snow on the wing

For Wings on Wednesday. This looks better the larger you look at it (to a point!) so please click the image and use the size controls at the top of the window that opens as needed.

I will admit that this is a chance shot. I just pointed the digiscoping rig into the mass of swirling birds and held the shutter down at 4 frames per second for about 5 seconds. This is the only one I kept…because the foreground birds are more or less in focus against the back drop of fuzzy geese. I could not have planned this if I had tried.

It is, admittedly, a challenging image to look at…but I like that about it. Give your eye a moment to make sense of it.

Canon SD4000IS behind the 15-56x Vario eyepiece on the ZEISS DiaScope 65FL. “Kids and Pets” mode.

Processed for intensity and sharpened in Lightroom. (see new Lightroom Processing page)
