Black-browed Albatross on Nest
Black-browed Albatross on Nest - 5D3, 17 TS-E, f/14, 1/200s, ISO 200
From one kind of close-up, we go to another. This was one of the few images I made with the 17mm TS-E lens. I spotted the Albatross on a landing below a cliff I was standing on and so I slowly got on my belly and extended my upper body over the cliff and made this image, careful not to disturb the Albatross. This kind of ultra wide angle image of a Black-browed Albatross is something I've wanted to make for a while. I also used shift on the TS-E lens to exaggerate the size of the foreground, in this case the bird; which makes for a unique perspective.
