Sometimes you get satisfaction from taking an average photo when you know the story behind it!

Got caught out in a storm this evening and had given up on getting any landscape photos. I managed to get back to the car when I noticed this lone Pelican.

It was chucking it down very cold and blowing a gale and my gear was in the car boot, but I thought it was worth the effort so I turned on my headlights to provide some fill light and while being blown around I managed to get a few captures and then lift off!

Taken at Bellambi Point NSW Australia Monday 2nd August 2010.
