Dancing Egrets
Lens: DA*300 Camera: K-3ii Photo Location: Assateague Island National Seashore ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/1000s Aperture: F7.1 
Posted By: UserAccessDenied, 01-17-2017, 12:26 PM

2016 was an incredible year for me - I learned so much in the last 12 months from this forum and attribute any photographic success to the entire PF community.
It's difficult to select a single photo from a full year of shooting. I was learning new techniques, new styles, trying to find subjects that interest me...

This shot is taken from Assateague Island National Seashore, in Maryland. I live a few minutes away from here and try to visit twice a week at minimum. I was lucky to capture these two Egrets last spring during mating season.
They were in a small cove and the sun was just about to set. I sat and watched their elegant "dance" for a while, I didn't want to disturb them. Once they were comfortable with me being a spectator, I took a few shots and moved on.

2017 is already bringing me more knowledge and opportunity. I'm hoping this spring will be as active as the last!

Very amazing. I really love the stark contrasts and that you managed to keep the exposure right without blowing out highlights.
