Suby In the House.
Update 16:15hrs: Arrrrggghhhh to all those guys thinkijg this is a cut & paste job done with clip art or something, for the last time this is a shot and to prove it here is the original file. See and weep :)
I have never posted a silhouette shot. Not because I don't like them. I just never had the opportunity to post one or always felt that the whole shot told a better story.
This was shot at about the same time I shot yesterdays post. I was taking a rest while Sinem went horse riding, I had my camera around my neck having a chat with a couple when I noticed a bird heading towards us from the corner of my eye, I had the zoom len's in but the bird was traveling so fast I just about had enough time to raise up the camera, and take the shot. Thank God it was metered correctly.
Anyway I MANAGED 2 SNAPS (the other shot, the bird is almost out of the frame) of this creature and when I got home as soon as I looked at the shot, I knew this was a silhouette shot if I have ever seen one.
The bird was already fairly dark against the clear white sky. NO THE SKY WAS NOT ORIGINALLY BLUE.
As I said, I would be stepping away slightly from my comfort zone over the next few weeks and exploring the imaginative side of Suby. I THANK EVERYONE for their lovely comments on "Open Range" yesterday. I am glad that shot was liked.
