One of the greatest joys of photography is the ability to capture the beauty of nature in all its glory. Recently, I was out early to photograph birds at a local lake, and I was lucky enough to witness a Kingfisher darting over the water. With the golden hues of the early morning sunshine, I knew that if I was to photograph a Kingfisher, the light would be fantastic.
As I scouted the area, I saw a Kingfisher deep in the trees surrounding the lake. Quickly, I positioned myself to get the perfect photograph. My Sony camera and 100-600mm lens is the ideal combination for this type of shot as I was able to focus and frame the bird and take a series of images.
With my camera ready, I waited patiently for the Kingfisher to emerge from the trees. Finally, it darted out and landed on a branch overlooking the water. I quickly snapped a few shots, making sure to adjust my settings to capture the golden light that was bathing the scene.
The Kingfisher sat there for a few moments, allowing me to take several images. Its vibrant colors stood out against the blue of the water, making for a stunning contrast. I was thrilled with the shots I captured, but there was one that stood out among the rest.
As I reviewed my images, I knew that I had captured a moment of natural beauty that would stay with me forever. The Kingfisher in golden light was an unforgettable sight, and I was grateful to have been there to witness it.
