While at Elk Island National Park the other Day, I was observing different activities and practising panning the camera as birds flew by. This black-ringed gull touched down quickly one, two, three times then flew up. I followed it and was happy to get the ripples left behind where it had touched down as well as its reflection. Taken with 300mm zoom. Also got a shot of a red-necked grebe in grebe bay at Astotin Lake, alittle difficult to capture in the afternoon glow where the light was harsh..
Love the reflection of the black ringed gull in the lake ~ superb work:)

It’s fun with those ripples the gull left behind in the water. Very nicely captured. The picture of the grebe is beautiful. The light and the colours are sublime.

Yup. I was in sync with the panning-a good feeling. 🙂
