Photo of the day at Imaging Resource
78

My photo has been honored by The Imaging Resource

http://www.dailydigitalphoto.com/cgi-bin/potd/potd.pl?day=20&month=1&year=2022

The Backstory: When I arrived on the Long Island beach there were 6 others photographers set up facing a dune. I spotted the owl from the distance and walked behind the photographers who were about 100 feet from the owl. I had observed the direction the owl was facing and that was into the wind so I continued till I had the wind at my back as I was confident this would be the direction the owl would take off and possibly fly. After I planted my tripod, I adjusted my exposure and the owl started to move around and I got ready for it to launch which it did in less than a minute. I caught a number of photos as it passed me. It landed on the top of a sand control fence, an ugly spot and waited for it to blast off again and this is when I took this photo with it in bright sun and a dark cloud in the background.

Larger for your enjoyment
