Silhouette of Pelican and Fishing Boat

As I mentioned yesterday, this is the photo that I originally intended to post for the "Silhouette" theme day, but I decided to post the photo of Julie taking a picture instead.   I figured that I would have a hard time explaining to my wife that I chose a photo of pelican instead of her.

The telephone lens compressed the space between the pelican and the fishing boat, as you can tell from the large comparative size of the bird.  My photo yesterday shows how far out in the bay the boats are moored.

I like the silvery sea of late afternoon.  Of course, I like the sunsets even better.

This week we have photos of Tanzania posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week.

I love seeing the groups of pelicans fly along the shore line. They look so graceful.

I am a total sucker for a photo with a pelican in it!!! Was this taken with your new Nikon L510?

OK - now that I know you can claim St. Louis also - What high school did you go to?

Oh well done Dave, this is fantastic..I've never been able to get a pelican in flight. btw The silhouette of Julie is brilliant too, but this one is super special.
