For so many years I have tried to get a shot of a bird crossing the Sun. One night in Ocean City, Maryland I was laying on a dock looking over the Hudson River taking Sun-set photos. I took around 400 shots. When I got back to my time-share I was going through my pics and saw this photo. At first I thought it was a smudge or a glitch but no. I finally shot a photo that I so longed for. This picture is raw, straight off the camera. I hope you like it as it was hard earned after so many years of trying. Shot this with a Nikon D5000 18-200 mm VR Nikkor. Thank you for looking.

My Name is Donnie. I won my first Johnny Quest camera through The Pittsburgh Press at age 6 and since then there was no looking back. I have 2 passions in my simple life. Spending time with my little girl and taking and editing photographs. I started editing photo’s about 2 years ago and I still have so much to learn. I love seeing beautiful and strive to shoot it. Any comments and or advise from you is very appreciated and most welcomed. Thank you for looking!
