This one is from the previous morning to my whale with moon image.

Both images were captured with a new Canon 5D III and a 70-200 f/2.8 with a 2x converter.  This image was at 400mm, f/5.6 with a shutter speed of 1/2500 of a second at ISO 640.  That was more then enough shutter speed, I could have dropped my ISO or gone to f/8.  As the sun peaks above the mountains in the morning, the amount of available light changes rapidly.

  1. I love how sharp that tail is. The lighting and background are beautiful. Do you now have the 5D II and 5D III in addition to the 7D?

    Thanks Shelley!

    Thanks Scott! Yes I do, but I’m going to sell the 5D II and the 7D – the 5D III kinda replaces them both with its fast auto-focus ability.
