Willet at Sunrise

This is why I love morning light. This image was captured at 6:54 AM this past week on Friday. We went on a small family trip during the Thanksgiving break this year visiting Santa Barbara, the Channel Islands and Morro Bay. I took the opportunity to photograph some shorebirds and this was taken at the Santa Barbara beach early Friday morning. For me, nothing beats early morning light for wildlife photography, those soft warm colors are simply fantastic. I was out on the beach well before sunrise and I believe this was captured just as the first rays were clearing the mountains.

Technical Specs: Canon 1D4, 500 f/4 IS, f/5.6, 1/640s, ISO 400.
