Self Isolation Day Nine – Snowy Owl Take Off

Day nine of mandatory self isolation (getting closer to freedom!) includes a photograph I made in January this year of a Snowy Owl on my Snowy Owl workshop in Canada. Snowy Owls are without doubt my favourite bird to photograph. They are incredibly majestic with iridescent yellow eyes. This particular photograph works for me because of the gesture and position of the bird as it takes off.

The photograph was taken hand held with the Canon EOS 1DX MK2 with the Canon 400mm f2.8L IA MK3.  Camera Settings: ISO800 f5.6, 1/1000th of a second. I will be leading another workshop for Snowy Owls in January 2021 (provided the world recovers from the Chinese Wuhan COVID-19 pandemic) for a small group of just six photographers (only one place remaining).
