First time posting here -- thought I'd share this shot that I took a couple of weeks ago...

The cormorant had been sitting on the structure in the background and I caught him just as he took off.

I like the light and the blurred wings. The metal pipe is a big distraction, IMHO. Where did you take this shot & with what?

The metal pipe is part of a sculpture in Vancouver's False Creek (a waterfront area near the downtown core). Theimage wascaptured with a Canon S1 IS about a half hour before sunset.

good shot, considering it was taken from a kayak. Not the most stable
platform to shoot from.

Thanks for the compliment. Most of my shooting is from a kayak -- that's one of the reasons I opted for the S1 IS -- the IS part is truly amazing!
