Week 22, Day 155, September 25, 2009, Heron Silhouette

On the way home from work tonight I drove along Forest Home Drive.  It's one of the common running routes that we take during lunch time.  Fall Creek runs along side the road, and I figured I would take some photos of the fall colors on the trees. 

When I arrived I saw a Blue Heron, and decided to photograph the bird instead.  I took several photos, and even took a photo of him catching a fish.  Unfortunately that photo is a little to blurry for my taste.

Instead I share one where the Heron is just flying from one side to the other.  The Heron is even dragging his/her talons on the top of the water.  The sun was still fairly bright, so all I was able to get was the silhouette.  Perhaps when I get good enough with photoshop I can lighten the heron.

Lessons Learned:
  • Be willing to change the subject.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/800, Aperture f/2.8, ISO 100, Focal Length 200 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 323mm, Lens Canon 70-200mm f2.8L USM, tripod.
