Flight Abstract

I spent several hours over the weekend on the trails and along the river down at the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary in Calgary.  The Mallard ducks and Canada geese flock to the rocky islets in the middle of the water every evening.  In the morning, the geese flew back out to the fields while most of the ducks preferred a slower start to the day.  Here, I dragged the shutter to a 1/4 of a second and panned with this pair as they flew down river.

  3. I love this shot. Thanks for providing some descriptive and technical background. I’ve shot some abstracts myself, not really having a technical clue what I was doing……thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Interesting. I usually don’t like these blurry photos but for some reason I like this. Perhaps it’s the wings visible at the top and bottom. In any case, well done.

  6. Beautiful! It’s like an abstract painting, except if abstract paintings actually looked like this then I would like them more than I do…
