Birds of Prey

 February, 2021 - Some miscellaneous birds of prey images from the surrounding area.

The Osprey are back!

 HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (February, 2021) - The osprey are back for the season building their nest and getting ready to mate. Oddly, there are three of them. Two appear to be males and one female sitting on the nest. Got there at around 07:00 and the two males put on arial show for about 30 minutes.

More MF images

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (February, 2021) - Shot some medium format images at the Bolsa Chica Wetlands and Marina with the Hasselblad 500cm and 50mm f/4 CFi. Shot early morning using the Peak Design travel tripod. Btw, this is a fantastic tripod. So well thought out, compact and easy to carry.

Medium Format Revisited

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif (February, 2021) - Shot some digital medium format images at the Huntington Beach Library with the Hasselblad 500cm and 50mm f/4 CFi. I really love the sharpness and color rendition from this lens. Other than the output being digital, the overall experience with the 500cm is exactly the same as shooting film. This is ideal for me because I enjoy the aspects of manual exposure and focus, but do not care for scanning film. Best of both worlds for me I guess...
