Up, up, and Away – Looking up (2)

Today, we visit Transylvania, and watch a stork up in the air, and I panned this shot to keep the bird sharp but with the landscape a little blurry to create a sense of motion. Not my best attempt, but it’s what I’ve got!,

Linked to January squares at Becky’s here


  1. oh I love this, motion perfectly caught

  2. me again, love this so much almost looks 3D

    Lovely photograh, don’t know what you’re worried about. It seems perfect to me.

  4. Hello my lovely, how are you? I wouldn’t mind some of that sleek bird elegance

  5. I think that’s a wonderful photo, Sue, and very difficult to get right. Well done!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  6. Looks pretty authentic to me 🙂 🙂

  7. Oh Sue, I so adore this photo. Great timing (and luck). 😀

  8. I think it’s wonderful, Sue!

  9. Wonderful image. I assume the stork has already dropped off the baby!

  10. Bird in motion. Something I’ve never achieved, not for want of trying. You have

  11. Never easy Sue – but your bird is tack sharp! Good job.

      Thanks, Tina in those days as lugged around a heavy camera and lens weighing 4lb round my neck, I don’t know how people manage with really heavy gear!

  12. I like what you got Sue 🙂

  13. Well done, Sue. Almost impossible to get perfection – it’s about the feeling that you have caught rather than every feather in perfect focus. I love it

    • Sue

      Pleased you like it, Debbie…I was enchanted by seeing so many of these birds in the fields, and I’ve shown a flock of them overhead in the past

  14. Perfect clear shot, Sue!

  15. Wow! Great capture Sue!
