#226 — In Flight

Flight, 2009.

This photo was taken just East of Haumana Bay at a scenic overlook along Kalanianaole Highway. I wanted to try out my new 200mm lens and attempt to capture a bird in flight. I went out, sat down on the retaining wall at the scenic overlook and snapped over 300 hundred shots of birds and people and sea, and at least 100 of the shots were birds in flight. Maybe a half dozen of those photos were acceptable, this one being the best of the lot.

    Nicole, I am not admitting how long I stood on that cliff or how many shots I took just to get one good photo!

    Polona — it only looks easy in the photo, Behind the camera there was a lot of snapping and cussing!
