Very nicely done, Mike. The pano downloads are beautiful.
Very nice set Mike - I really like the landscapes!
Very nice set, Mike. What a beautiful place to photograph too.
These are beautiful scenes, Mike.
A great set, Mike! My favorite is the last one, although a number of the others are close.
These are all beautiful, Mike! I enjoy the challenge of BIF, so for me, #2 is my favorite. I love the blurred out mountains and background. Just awesome! Mike, can I ask what you've chosen for your settings? I've thought about doing a preset, but lighting tends to always be changing. I'm always looking to learn and try to improve.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos, Mike!

Excellent shooting, Mike! Love, love, love the harrier and what a beautiful venue you have.
Loc: Goleta, California
Super images, love the harrier!
I know I need to Google Farmington Bay to see a bird refuge but you always do a wonderful job 👍👍😊😊
[quote=UTMike]As many of you know, I am a landscape enthusiast ("rock shooter") who attempts to get some decent bird photos. Whenever I go to a bird refuge I also like to capture what the area is like. I had a cold, windy day for shooting, but with decent light. This set shows the only two flying shots I took and some shots to show you Farmington Bay.
In past shoots here I had a problem with excessive noise when I set my camera at high speeds and ISO. So, I entered a setting for BIFs. The first two photos in this set are a male harrier (I think).
The landscapes show what the Farmington Bay area looks like from various positions.
Downloads are your best bet for viewing.[/
Great moments taken in BIFs, and the scape images are neatly composed. Very well done, Mike!
Nice set Mike, for a rock shooter your BIS are nothing to complain about
I really like the last shot, I have never seen so many Pied-billed Grebes in one place before
Very nice set Mike. Love those pano's and mountain views. I like how you captured the hawk scanning the ground as you caught him in flight.
