A few days ago whilst walking to a railway station I was afforded the opportunity to capture this moment.
I was trying to get close to the ibis when it took to the air, so I kept on snapping.
I think that whilst this is clearly a photo of an ibis flying, due to its form, it looks like it’s suspended in air and not flying at all.
I like how well some of the details of the feathers have come through. There’s a crispness to them that I think works well with both the few shadows and the rendering into monochrome.
If you want this image, it is available here as a print, among other things.
This is my submission into The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.
The theme this week is “Detail“.
It’s a fun weekly event. I’d recommend checking it out and considering submitting.
The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:
Week 1 – Patti
Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya
Week 3 – Amy
Week 4 – Tina
This week is hosted by Patti and next week’s will be hosted by Leya.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy.
