These are amazing! Stunning work. What camera/lens? I am assuming 500.


I wonder if the video editors on The Titanic ever went, "Sorry, I can't right now. I'm busy synching the Titanic..."

Excellent set Steve, as always. Lots of people get detailed shots but you always seem to get that little bit extra.

Man, that first one is insanely beautiful Steve !! The colours reflected on the water are just outstanding.

Second pick would be the last shot. I know you pretty much never use flash but I'll ask again ... any flash used on that last one ?? The lighting under those wings is amazing.

You're going to get the big "Top Notch" from me !!

Matt.


Thanks very much Matt. Sorry I forgot to reply to your question. I didn't use flash on that last shot. The sun was low in the evening sky and at just the right angle to the action.

Superb shots Steve, lovely reflected light colours in the HM shots and Brown Pelican reflection is particularly fine but they are all winners.

I don't know how I missed this great series. Love the hoodies, but LOVE the osprey with his catch. Great shots, Steve.

That first shot deserves to be the first in the set.
