Day 12: Pelican

This image is probably a month or so old by now but I hadn’t done anything with it yet. This is from another trip to the Marina on New River Air Station. The lighting wasn’t great (bit too bright out) but I worked with it as best as I could. I really liked how the feathers on top of its head were wet and how the sun was illuminating that area.  Shot with my Canon 7Dmkii and the Canon 400mm f/5.6L lens I was renting at the time. Processed in Adobe Lightroom.

Photography Contest

So I decided to enter my Pelican Portrait photo into the Popular Photography Magazine month of March best shot contest. I made some changes to it in Adobe Lightroom earlier today to bring out some more features.

I would be grateful of anyone who clicks the link and leaves me a vote! The edited image is posted there and is also the image for this post. Thanks!

Lunch Adventures

Occasionally I go to the Marina on base during lunch to practice my photography skills and enjoy being out of the office. There is usually an interesting assortment of birds as well as Marines flying overhead in all types of whirlybirds.

Here are some shots I was able to capture today. The weather is just to beautiful but it was a bit bright and there was a lot of smoke clouding the sky due to ordnance being destroyed.

Weekend Adventures

We had a fun weekend! The weather was gorgeous here in North Carolina, so much so that Oshie enjoyed a romp in the waves at the beach on Saturday and on Sunday we went for a “nature walk” in shorts and t-shirts.

As much as I love snow and miss living in the north and around mountains, I can’t complain when the end of January weather consists of cloudless 70 degree days.

Here are a few shots from the weekend activities. The Pelicans were seen on our nature walk on Sunday. They let us get pretty close before they became uncomfortable and took off.
