These pictures are not the highest resolution but after looking at them, I still kinda like 'em. A little different style than I usually go after. Actually, I really like them despite not being as sharp as I'd like. I took them this morning, in insanely thick fog. Everything was so gray to begin with, so I decided to make them black and white.
You really could hardly tell where the water stopped and the sky began, so it basically just looks like a mirror. That I like. It looks like there's a backdrop or something behind him...so weird. But that's just the way the morning was! Seeing the pelican fly in was pretty wild looking because of the lack of light and the fog and the mirror effect. It was totally cool, the reflection was so crisp!
It's a Brown Pelican, by the way. And a big congrats to them for coming off the endangered list recently!! Usually this time of year they aren't as abundant around here, but the weather has been so nice, I think they've decided to stick around a little longer.
