Default June 28, 2016: A sky full of skimmer

A sky full of skimmer

"One of the amazing sights and sounds that repeat over and over at Nickerson Beach is the blastoff of the entire skimmer and/or tern colony. Having thousands of birds in the air all around you is an amazing sensation. I was quite tired when this blastoff happened so rather than moving to get behind my camera, I simply set my 150-600 Sport to the wider end and pointed the camera in what seemed the correct direction and tripped the shutter when I liked what I saw in the sky. I shoot from the hip all the time when doing street photography so I'm fairly practiced at this method and very pleased I was able to translate to the long lens. D300s + Sigma 150-600 Sport @ 210, 1/1000, f8, ISO 400, Fill flash (SB800 + Better Beamer)"
