Your series is quite spectacular Dan, I especially marvel at the detail and resolution with the whites... lovely images, all of them.
And I thought stumbling over deadfalls was treacherous... best wishes for a successful surgery and a quick recovery.

An another excellent set Daniel. I had a favourite picked out on the first pass and then changed my mind on the second and then gave up. Great work all the way around.

Laying in the muck and mire sure does pay off! Beautiful set, Daniel. Best of luck with your surgery. Now I have to go buy a set of waders! :)

An absolutely stellar set of images Dan, couldn't ask for better variety at the water's edge. The Caspian and Avocet are really incredible. Sorry to hear about your infection, I hope you beat that soon. Your warning should ring loud and clear to all who choose to shoot laying down out there. I wear nylon jacket and pants since I crawl through some very questionable funk including droppings which no one needs to come in contact with, especially with open wounds, and broken shells are a sure way to get them. I'm also destined for some knee repair with a torn meniscus but I've got some other issues that I'm dealing with right now so that's on hold. Take care of yourself and best of luck on your upcoming surgery.

Great shots! I gotta ask, That doesn't look like a tripod... The water you're in is quite shallow. Is this sort of like a Mono-pod, or something, that you stuck in the bottom of the pond you're in?

Great images, you certainly work for your shots, Ive seen a few of these species in my part of the UK, any others would be welcome . Love the Pec shot.


Thank you very much, I have really grown to enjoy photographing shorebirds, something about getting down with them and entering their world makes it allot of fun

BGgraphy wrote in post #12937322 (external link)
Now that is dedication, they sure did turn out well, love the Avocet best but all are very nice. The last one is pretty good too. you had better be careful with that cellulitis, can get real nasty.
Great job Dan!


Brett, Thanks a million... The Avocet I was chasing for a-while and was a target bird for me this shorebird season, I was very happy to have had that opportunity. Yes your rite this Cellulitis turned out to be pretty nasty, on the mend pretty good now though. Thanks

Daniel! Bravo man! What a wonderful series. The Tern is perfect and you had me wondering how the heck you got it until seeing your friends photograph of you.
Please take good care of your leg.

Would you mind detailing a bit about your set up?


Lil,
Thank you so much. I had approached that Tern several times by crouching low and slowly closing the distance, I kept bumping it just as I was getting into descent range. my intention was to crouch/walk up then get down and low to capture some images, It was having no part of that.

I finally belly crawled close to 200' and moved around gaining position while on the belly to gain a pleasing BG and shot angle. A great experience shared by myself and another photog friend.

The gear is the 1D4| 600 f/4 Lens | Gitzo GT3541LS tripod "Collapsed all the way down| Wimberley2 | 580EX2 flash with Better Beamer on Wimberly flash bracket with extra height extension.| Canon CP-E4 Battery pack for flash recycle and battery longevity| The round thing is a small zippered camera case for the 1.4x extender for ease of access

Hey Daniel,
Awesome pics!!! Just wondering how you like your flash extender???Judging by your photos is seems you have it dialed in.Thinking about trying one for football-any comments??
Paul


Paul,
Thank you very much... Paul I like the extender allot, gets the flash up and off the camera, acts like off camera flash. decreasing and eliminating steel eye, although in close MFD situations, the bracket extension you see used here can cause slight blowover as its height is higher than the lens barrel causing the flash to go over the target. Its often a godsend though as even when dialed -3 stops down its often to much flash to act as fill.

Shooting here in Northern Ohio we have allot of cloud cover, I will use it allot then, and then on harsher days to offset the ambiant light and lift shadows.

There are allot of people against flash and prefer natural light, however when used correctly you will not know the difference and the fill will give that lil extra pop and enhance colors. Its something I could never see myself not using. Its almost always on my camera, not always turned on but as conditions or circumstances change It's there and ready to adapt to those changes

Dave,
Thanks much, always great hearing from you, although this is somewhat risky at times, but as long as your careful its not too bad, actually I have had allot closer calls stumbling around the deadfalls as you suggested, so you be careful as well... Thanks for the speedy recovery. Infections well under ropes, but now the darn knee surgery on Sept 1. arghh its Hell getting old...

Wallace,
Lol... Thanks loads.... if your just on sand and water then waders are not really needed, the much however stains your close pretty good. I end up getting dirty and soaked anyhow, sometimes I wonder why I am even wearing them, thought about a dry suit, but after seeing the costs. I just use the same shirt and jeans, and opt for the waders still.

Steve,
Thanks allot, always great to hear from you, appreciate that. Yes... I never really thought allot about it until I have been around a few doctors while photographing. Both said there is no way you would get me down there within all that sludge, muck, nasty water and feces knowing the things you can catch from doing so.
Their is no doubt they are rite im sure, But I cannot help myself. As I just like and enjoy it so much, As i know you do. Your nylon jacket and pants idea is good, I have used a nylon upper ipper a few times. But the lowers keep with the frogg toggs as It changes between sand, mud, water so quickly.

Good luck with your issues, Hope it all works out for you. I understand the Meniscus is not too big of a deal. Its a pretty quick mend. Mine is bothering me pretty good, so pretty anxious to get it behind me. Hang in their with your's better days ahead, well wishes back at yah!

Camerman,
Thanks... It is a tripod. a Gitzo collapsed all the way down.... I stay with the tripod cause things change so much where I am at. in mots places so quickly. I might be on the sand and then 5 minutes later in 4 feet of water shooting back on something. so the tripod although a pain still seems to be the best all around option....

Thanks again everyone for the nice comments!!!

Aw heck Daniel! Looks like you could have gotten lower. ;) Great series, wonderful perspective. I love everything about these, color, composition detail perspective, and presentation. Well done! Waders are a must!
