Bolinas Lagoon, Bolinas, CA
In April 2014 I was driving along the lagoon shoreline on a very overcast day when I spotted at least five Ospreys fishing. I stopped for several hours that day and returned several more days to photograph them. I got this guy shortly after he got out of the water with his fish, and with a squawking gull in hot pursuit.
Modest contrast, brightness, saturation, warmth, sharpness, and crop.
