Meadow Pipit at Buckton (Bempton)


Photo Information
The grassland behind the cliffs at Buckton, close to Bempton is a rich habitat for wildlife of all kinds, not least birds. This Meadow Pipit was photographed there today in beautiful soft evening light with my K-3, DA*300, 1.4 HD TC and a Redsnapper Tripod.

It looks great in that light. I admire your ability not to crop it more! I would usually have cropped that to a more portrait aspect ratio and it would have been less of a picture. I am currently trying to get away from a very detailed and scientific capture of a bird to more aesthetic shots and this would be a good example.

Thanks Dave, I really appreciate this particular comment. The picture would have stood a crop as the detail is there in the feathers, but I do like to present birds in the context of their surroundings and this is probably an ideal example. I considered a hard crop, but thought that I would lose the essence of the image by doing this.
