Three’s Company

I wasn’t sure if the overcast conditions would work in my favour or not.

It was mid afternoon and I was due to go and photograph a constructions site, but the appointment was cancelled. So I headed to a local reservoir on the off-chance, not sure if it would rain or if the light would be unusable.

With the sun behind these three, contre-jour as they say, the partially overcast sky allowed me to properly expose the shadow side facing the camera.

The almost square crop was forced on me by some other detail which needed to be eliminated from the shot. I think it works well though.

I took about a dozen shots of these 3 pelicans, this was the first of the lot and clearly the best.
