Now before you get too excited these are birds with feathers and they live on mudflats mainly. I went out for a day in the field and it was grey, cold and thoroughly bad for photography. Generally speaking good light improves the aesthetic appeal of a shot immensely. When I looked at the shots at home at the end of the day’s shooting I realised some of them looked more like monochrome images. And so, I took my RAW/DNG files and processed them in black and white. Perhaps I should have captioned this Birds in the RAW.
Here is my selection:
And all that in search of a Glaucous gull. Which is mainly white anyway. Happy monochrome days.
