Hi everyone! Sorry for my missing this week’s challenge and my lack of posts. I was in New Mexico but I expected to have connectivity – unfortunately the lodge I stayed at was having network issues! This post is to keep my streak of Challenges intact. This is a photo from the Kenai Fjords area of Alaska – 3 oystercatchers on a diagonal in the rain. It shows that “near and far” can also happen within just a few inches – in this case, I used a narrow depth of field and blurred both the near and far “catcher” while focusing on the center one. The birds were also kind enough to provide a diagonal formation to lead us into the photo. Lastly, it was pretty dark out there in the rain (and with a relatively slow lens) so I had to use a slow shutter speed. I think that also contributes to the photo as it caught the raindrops as streaks rather than drops…..
I know this isn’t what the challenge leader intended (landscapes) but I think it works for a whole different reason – hope you agree.
