Snow Buntings (abstract)

Technically there was little to recommend this shot when I called it on to the screen, but I did like the way the birds have been caught against a bright sky and there is something about their Arctic homeland in the feel of the shot.


Canon 1Ds MkII, Canon 100-400mm IS USM lens, 1/320th sec, f/6.4, 400mm at ISO 400. Distance to subject: > 15m

  2. It does grab your interest, I like it. Not only because it's different but also for itself.

  5. If you open the picture in a new tab, it enlarges more than if you click on the picture, and it looks like the birds have been hand drawn. It is a lovely effect, well done Tim.

    1. Thanks for that pointer, Toffeeapple. This is one of those shots that certainly works better seen that little bit larger.

  6. Yes, Toffeeapple is right, viewing this in a larger format reveals so much more. It's excellent.
