CommentAn old photo taken with a relatively early model digital camera. Shallow mudflat on the shores of Lake Macquarie. I took a lot of photos this day as all manner of birds were feeding on the flat. This was one of my favourite photos from the day though. I focussed on the Eraring Power Station in the background putting the spoonbills out of focus. I really like the heat haze in the vegetation and the background. I've re-processed in Topaz Sharpen which has done a good job of smoothing out the noise in the original.
EquipmentCanon EOS 10D, with 100-400mm zoom at 400mm. f/11, 1/250 sec, ISO 200. On tripod.
