Bird flights along the Bow River
I spent a couple of hours on the banks of the Bow River at the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary in Calgary last night. There are hundreds of ducks, geese and shorebirds that bed down on the rocky fingers in the middle of the river. The light faltered quickly making sharp images an increasingly challenging, and ultimately impossible, endeavour.
I switched to working with the abstract forms possible with longer shutter speeds and panning the camera with the subjects. I loved watching the large and the small flocks as they returned from the fields or other places further along the river. It is a great spot to enjoy the wildlife in the middle of the city.
