I’m getting so far behind on processing my images! That’s why I decided to try to post one image per day so I would keep up on my procssing. But I’m still a month behind.
I do love processing, but when we’re travelling and I’m seeing so many new things I feel like I could just keep making new images forever and never get around to processing them.
It’s fun to find out which ones make the final cut though. I wasn’t expecting today’s photo to be one of them.
Today’s Photo: Bird in Flight Abstract
I would like to be able to say that this one was all planned out. But the truth is, it was a happy accident.
I was photographing birds that were just standing in the water. I can tell from the series of photos that I was on f/11 and suddenly it went up to f/13 which is an aperture I wouldn’t normally choose. I don’t know why, I just always choose 11 or 14 or 16, but not 13. So I know I accidentally bumped the dial which caused my shutter speed to drop to 1/60th of a second at the exact moment this little bird came in for a landing.
And that’s how my photo of stationary birds turned into a bird in flight abstract!
But you know what, I like it! Next time I’ll do it purposefully.
