Blustery Day
updated: Feb 08, 2013, 7:40 PM

By HSJ_Bilder

I had some business at the harbor yesterday and got a few images of a pelican and a very old boat. Later in the day, the clouds at sunset were threatening and foreboding.

Nice pics. But the sunset "threatening and foreboding?"

Where do people come up with these adjectives? Glorious and resplendent is more like it.

Absolutely beautiful pictures, thanks. Your comment about the sunset expresses your feeling, someone else can feel differently but no need to chastise your use of adjectives.

First, thank you for the nice comments. As to 73P, "people" did not come up with these adjectives--I did. It seems it is my prerogative to describe my response to a scene as I see fit, you need not agree but your choice is no more valid than mine. Take your own pictures and describe them in any way you choose.

Great pics! We have been searching for a great birding camera. What kind did you use?

Actually, DULCE, what I used could not be described as a "birding camera", which mainly depends on the lens. In this case I used a medium length lens (85 mm), the pelican flew just above the boat masts. The camera is a Nikon D300s.
For serious birding you would probably want a lens of at least 300mm focal length, preferably longer.

Great comeback RDH! Ahhhh, the 85 mm...how I covet thee. And the 300mm!

That is a glorious shot of the pelican in flight. How similar his outstretched wings look to those of a turkey vulture in that photo.
