This image was taken one evening in Mornington while overlooking Port Philip Bay. My partner and I had gone on the small road trip to try and capture some Sunset shots. Of course, once there we discovered the Sun hidden behind flat grey clouds. I took the opportunity to try and get some bird in flight shots and this was one of them.
With a little Photoshop manipulation to add the clouds in the background and the rain to create some moodiness and a sense of isolation and some colour correction to add drama and this is the end result.

Lens – Sigma 150-500mm

This image looks great when it is mounted with a cherry wood box frame and has a black matte.
