Flamingos at Sunset, Nakuru National Park, Kenya. Africa. by 


Lake Nakuru, Nakuru national Park, Kenya, Africa.

I photographed these birds in extremely bright light, and deliberately silhouetted them, against the water. The original image was bland in the extreme, so to zap it up somewhat, I played around in Photoshop CS3 to make it look like sun setting on the water.
I added a circular selection to the middle, feathered it, added a coloured filter, reduced opacity, then hit inverse, and added the coloured filter again, full strength.
Shot on my Canon EOS 40D, Bigma lens, balanced on a bean bag on the open window of our vehicle, 50-500mm set at 417mm, iso 400, f13, auto wb, RAW file processed in Photoshop CS3. No filters on the lens.

    May I rely you a true story about that place? My mother grew up in a little house on the edge of the lake… and… having heard my grandmother’s wish to have a flamingo of her own… ventured in amongst them… and as they took flight… she ran with them … she caught one … saying it felt as though she too, was going into flight… He gave the flamingo to my grandmother … but it was let free to fly again… Thanks for this reminder to my magnificent mother…Beautiful shot for a beautiful memory…

  • It feels pretty good that I have given you a little moment of pleasure, with your sweet memories…….Thank You very much for commenting too !
