Something different for today, no HDR
I was cruising home from work, stopping at one of my favorite Urbex locations, hoping some plywood was ripped from the windows so I could get in, I did not have a camera with me and all the plywood was intact. Then I spotted the beauty, a Red-Tailed Hawk sitting on a park feeder(Molly Stark Hospital is now a park). I was in my car, again no camera about 15-20 yards away. I hit the window switch and told the beautiful bird to stay there. (I did say that to the bird, that’s stupid I know, but guess what..) I drove home, approx 5-6 miles, popped the garage, ran in and got the rig, put on the 70-200 2.8L IS USM beast and hurried back…guess who was still there….. I must speak Hawk….So…Come Fly with Me!
The shot below is a composite of 4 shots when I tried to get closer to this beauty and I apparently was too close at that point, I took a few quick snaps to capture the hawk in flight!
Last but not least, a profile shot
All images were captured on the 5D Mark III using the fantastic 70-200 2.8L IS USM II
Have a great weekend!
