SkyWatch Friday - A wader sky

I just can't help it - here is another shot involving waders!

We may be able to record the sky in its many moods, but birds leave us in the shade when it comes to that most sky-full of activities flight.

This mixed flock of wader caught my eye a while ago - and I thought I see what it looks like in Black and White (what a silly name - but it does sound better than Shades of Grey!)


You can find more sky shots at SkyWatch Friday.

Enjoy the skies.

Its a wonderful sight when birds take flight all at the same time and darken the skies with their silhouettes.

Love this shot in black and white, Stewart.

Great shot! Wonderful to capture them in a flock as they take off.

Being so used to the magic of easily available colour, we forget the artistry that B&W offers.
In this case, it gives a great deal of extra depth.
Sheer photographic poetry.

I envy you your sky. :)

But I did see the first pair of Common Goldeneye today. :)

This is awesome! The b&w let's me focus on the bird action without getting distracted by color. Love it!

Maybe one of these days I will be able to get a shot like this. In the meantime I will just have to look at yours and others and be envious. Great shot. genie

A frame full of feathered friends. I tend to ignore b&w on my camera, maybe I should get out of my comfort zone!

Brian King said...

Fantastic shot, Stewart! I'm a big fan of B&W and this is really nice!

JDS said...

Nice shot, and in my opinion the black and white adds an element of mystery that makes it "wall worthy."
