Bird Lineup by Lori Azevedo

April 2021 - Bird Lineup

About the Image(s)

This photo was taken in December of 2020 near the San Joaquin River alongside a golf course. Husband was playing while I was strolling the river banks looking for photo ops. It was a very cold and cloudy morning. The lighting was working well off the water. I came across this group of birds and tried to stay quiet so I would not disturb them. I liked the branch coming off the bank of the river and how evenly spaced the birds remained with most of the birds looking to the west. Guess they were social distancing bird-style.
I would love to be able to say that my post processing skills enhanced the photo but truthfully I lack these stills. A little photoshop was used to clean up distractions. No filters were used. Other than that I just cropped out the shoreline to center the photo.
Photo was shot with Nikon D850 at f/13, 270mm, ISO 400, 1/100 sec.

I think this image is so lovely. I wish it were mine. I don't think you need to do anything to it, it's just beautiful.   Posted: 04/08/2021 11:34:56
