Herring Gull

Oh I do indeed like to be beside the seaside when light like this is available. The framing of the bird, by the way, is quite deliberate; the 1Ds has 45 possible focus points and I opted for the farthest on the right to get the maximum amount of beach and sky in the remainder of the shot.

Canon 1Ds MkII, Canon 100-400mm IS USM lens, 1/1,000th sec, f/9, 400mm at ISO 400. Distance to subject: c 5m


  1. Enjoyed the shots over the last few posts Tim, Good to have some nice light at last !!

  2. Thanks Warren. Good light does make the world of difference.

  3. Love the quirky composition here, Tim. I wouldn't have thought of doing that, so intent am I on getting a standard portrait. Has given me a few ideas - thanks!

  4. I agree with Jeremy. "note to self must try Quirky comps" awesome as always
