Middle Creek Casuals

As dawn breaks Willard stands at the ready with his 500mm waiting for passing geese while his daughter Amy scans the lake with her binoculars.  An unknown photographer can be seen in the background.

Later, at the field where the geese were feeding, Willard focuses the 500mm in for some landing shots

A panorama created from a set of three images depicts the scene that lay before us better than individual images ever could.  Photoshop CS5 makes stitching panoramas incredibly easy.


I captured this series using the Canon 30D and 24-105mm lens

That lens on Willard's camera is quite something.I have to wonder if it would finally be big enough to get the birds up close.LOL

You really do need a panorama shot to do the scene justice when there are so many birds. Nice Photoshop work!
