"NIGHT HERONS" / "NATTHEGRER"


D4, 200-400 4,0, f/4,0, 1/20, ISO 3200

No, these are NOT night herons, these are GREY HERONS, but the pictures are all shot at night time …. on feeding & sleeping Hungarian herons. The pictures come with extensive use of artificial lighting, cold light as backlight & warmer & softer light up front, and some of the situations also benefit from the heaviest rain ever recorded in the last Hungarian decade (!). I wanted to post a couple of these "night herons" together with other stuff from Hungary, …. but in the end I could not choose between them, 
so these are all exclusively : night shots.
Hope you like them. 

The other stuff will hopefully come later.

Thanks to Bence Matè for help, inspiration & great company during 7 days & 7 nights of intense photographic work.

  5. Fantstiske bilder med en magisk lysetting. Utrolig fott med regnet som skaper en magisk stemning i bildene. Bildene med sorellende fisk i nebbet er utrolig stilig med vannet i alle retninger.
    Makaløst!
