Marbled Godwit, Point Reyes National Seashore

Photo of a marbled godwit hunting at Drakes Beach.

Hunting in the Surf at Drakes Beach

This photo was taken last Saturday at 5:10PM, which was 35 minutes before sunset.  As with the bluebird photo of a few days ago, there was a strong color cast caused by the low sun.  This time I left the color correction for middle gray, but disabled the color correction for black/white.  That’s the opposite of what I did with the bluebird.  If I had left the correction for black/white the water would have been very blue.  The color correction for middle gray was small and this looked slightly better to me.

    Look great to me, this is quite an impressive looking bird. Haven’t made it out there yet, maybe
    next week. I’m at the mercy of my girlfriends schedule, she thinks I shouldnt go alone for first
    trip and she’s familiar with the roads.
