Vulture in Flight with clouds and sunburst

It’s a mood

Day 19 of 30 Day Challenge

I did this while on a walk in the park. A vulture was flying about and I took a few shots, hoping for the best. My camera isn’t really the best one for birds in flight (some photographers use $6-10K lenses on $4000 bodies for that specialty!) but I do like the cinematic feel of this. I hoped the clouds in the sky would add interest. Many people think a clear blue sky is best for photos, but, give me poofy clouds like this and I’m way happier. I added some grain and turned it black and white with the computer. I think it invokes a mood, and I’m good with that.

  1. Love it, Dave! Yeah, It be awesome to have equipment like that. 🙂 I think this is better in black and white. I pretty blue sky might have overshadowed the subject. Plus, this gives it a lonesome feel. Flying high with the sky all to yourself 🙂

    1. Thanks Sheila! I don’t think I’d get $15K worth of pleasure out of doing them, so I passed on a system that would let me. I lucked out on this in that the vulture was very close when flying by me!

    1. Thank you! I think a lot of the time it’s just noticing and saying to myself “I wonder if this will work?” and then seeing what happens. I certainly have a lot of failures, but, without them, I don’t get the successes!
