Day Sixteen -- January 16th, 2015

Standing Tall


The Hooded Mergansers returned to the Providence River which I walk by on the way to work.  I took many shots, but made a huge mistake in setting my aperture way to low.  Almost all of the shots were out of focus.  I did get this one, which I liked.  As this Merganser was rising out of the water to shake his wings,  I got him just before the blur of the shake.  

Getting good shots with the longer Tamron lens is still a work in progress.  I'll keep trying.  

Here's one  more from yesterday that caught me by surprise.  I was trying to get the auto-focus to work properly, aimed at the distant bridge and snapped.  I kind of like it.
