Nicely captured, David.
From the EXIF it seems the light was not the best it could be, do you find the monopod useful in these conditions ?

Best regards
Peter

Good capture David. Regarding the monopod, do you switch off the shake-reduction when using the monopod or not. I have read conflicting answers in the past and hope you can finally help me understand this dilemma...Thank you and Kind Regards..tommyt.

Hi Peter, for this type of shot in this light it is essential to use a monopod or tripod. The tripod obviously gives more stability, but is not really practical as you can't adjust position quickly enough. Bear in mind, this is at 420mm and a relatively low shutter speed, so without the support it would most likely be ruined by shake

Hi Tommy, thanks for the comment and question. I never bother turning off the shake reduction, I don't think it matters as long as you are keeping fairly still and give the mechanism time to settle after moving the camera.
