Great Egret fishing in the Atlantic Ocean at Pt. Judith, Rhode Island, USA

Great Egret
L 39 " Wingspan 51 inches

9:30 AM, fog is lifting...
This is the channel just off the ocean where the fishing boats come in...

a 5 year old with a swiftly melting ice cream cone

It was a thrill to see this bird catch a fish--toss it and eat in in one swift movement!

one more learning curve--- how does one deal with fog? ISO 100, f/9, 1/200 Oev

Lovely image, Jenn. I think the automotive engineers have answered your questions about dealing with fog. Get low! Low lights shine thru while cameras somehow accent the eerie effect.

I like this it is a very well observed composition and the remains of the fog is an important element. How do you want to deal with fog Jennnn?

You have managed to retain the foggy atmosphere and mood but still produce a nice clear image of the bird. Good capture.

Nice shot Jenn, never tried shooting in fog but you have caught the egret nice and clear with great fog.
Haven't been to the beach yet....did get to Gloucester Ma and Scituate Ma on my last job. Pretty much the same rocky beaches, lovely little towns

Very atmospheric, and a difficult subject to expose correctly for too.

I think you've dealt beautifully with the fog (it's a lot easier than a 5 yr old with a melting ice cream Smile). A lovely atmospheric scene Jennn and a great capture,

How do you deal with fog ? Just enjoy the mystery of it , because usually it soon passes as the sun burns through Smile Another wonderful image Jennnnnn . Love the vantage point and the frame of rocks xxxx

Under the circumstances, I'd say you did beautifully. The fog is a wonderful soft backdrop for this natural setting.

Stunning Jenn despite the obstacles of ice cream 5 year olds and the dreaded fog. Looks like the sun was coming through quite warmly to get rid of the fog, don't know of another remedy. Wink

I agree wholeheartedly with Allies comment, just enough fog to create atmosphere, yet enough sublime light to show the elegancy and detail of the bird,

14 Jul 2008 3:59AM does one deal with fog? I'd say a good start would be to do exactly what you have done here Jennn, this is fantastic and it's my pleasure to give it my award!

Jen, sometimes I'm almost frightened to visit your PF and this image is the sort of reason why! This is so very, very good; diamond-clear detail, perfect composition and colour but, best of all, the sheer grace and emotion of the photograph is spell-binding.
