Santa Monica, California.
As we were walking on the Palisades I spotted a large group of birds flying north up the coast. As they got closer it became clear that they were pelicans. It’s tough enough to shoot groups of birds flying and then, when the only way to get them is through a group of palm trees getting a decent shot is near impossible. This was the only shot I had time to take and while far from perfect, I’m happy with it as a place marker for an amazing sight to see.
I attempted this kind of shot on an earlier visit to LA and this one I got yesterday may be a bit better.
2014 shot: Pelicans, palisades, palm trees, and flare.
