One of the things I love about my current location on the estuary in Campbell River, British Columbia, is all the birds that frequent my back yard. Every day there are eagles, herons, geese and all sorts of small birds, so I get lots of practice with my bird photography.
I like to make abstract images featuring motion blur, as I shared with you earlier this week with my wildebeest abstract. To make today’s image I used a slow shutter speed of 1/25th of a second and panned as the great blue heron flew by.
To process this image, I only added a little contrast and some noise reduction in Lightroom. Quick and easy!
