AN OSPREY ON THE MOON / FISKEØRN PÅ MÅNEN


D4, 600 mm 4,0 + 2x converter = 1200 mm, f/8.0, 1/400, ISO 2500

Can you imagine what it takes of happy coincidence, strategic planning and superoptimistic attitude (this is where my friend comes in !) ... to shoot this picture ? You need an osprey to perch on a solitary branch .. in a very special and critical moment, you need a low horizon to allow that low glowing moon to appear, you need the moon to pass by in the very appropriate hight (which will only happen a short period each month), you need a super clear evening with no absolutely clouds, you need a full moon phase ... and you need to be able to position yourself according to the surprisingly quick moving planet ... without scaring away the shy osprey. OK, a chlichè maybe, almost like a logo, but this is real life ... and it has NOT been "photoshopped". This is a low resolution copy, but if you zoom in on the moon around the bird you should be able to get an impression of mosquito density in a warm norwegian summers evening ! 

The picture as shot in Norway in late July this year. A warm thank you to a good friend !!

The main thing for me this time was to show you this single picture. The other pictures are just a "fill ups" from previous years ... and have been blogged before.

  8. Hei Tom, herlighet så flotte bilder! Og ja dette ene bildet du fikk av ditt bilde mot månen, alle forberedelser når det gjelder dette bildet, er vel ren og skjær flaks bygget på kunnskap? Fullmåne? Enkelt. Dødt tre i samme retning? Enkelt. Klarvær? ehheemm!! Fugl? Dobbelt ehhemmm!! Gratulerer! Synes jeg kan høre og telle dine hjerteslag i minuttene før øyeblikket åpenbarte seg!1 :-)
    Mvh Lillian
