Flying Pelicans Up Close

One morning the sky was blue–contrast this shot with the one taken in the fog.
This shot was taken on a foggy day.

This week I spent two mornings photographing brown pelicans flying over Carmel River State Beach. This type of shooting challenges my use of Nikon’s auto focus in sports mode. Sure, I capture the pelicans in flight, but the sharpness isn’t there. But after enough tries, I got some keepers. Practice, practice.
