Photo by Carl Shortt. "My son and I went on a once in a lifetime photography trip to Bosque del Apache, New Mexico in December 2012," Carl wrote. "The weather was very cold but the birds were quite active. This shot was taken at dusk. The clouds offered a colorful background to the bird silhouettes. There really wasn't much light, yet the 5D MIII was able to easily obtain and maintain focus in this low light environment. Specs: Tripod mounted Canon 5D III, Lens Canon 400mm DO F/4 w 1.4 Canon converter, ISO 800, F 5.6, 1/500.

Participate in This Month's Assignment
The September 2013 assignment is "Grab Shot." Details can be found on the Member Participation page. Deadline is Sept. 30, 2013. No limit on image size submitted.
Please follow the instructions carefully for labeling the subject line of the email for your submission. It's easy to lose these in the pile of mail if not labeled correctly. For example, the subject line for this month's assignment should be: "Photo Assignment: Sept. 2013." Also, if you can, please don't strip out the metadata. And feel free to add any IPTC data you wish (These fields in particular: Caption, Credit, Copyright, Byline), I use that for the caption info.
Gallery posting is one month behind the deadline. So I'm posting July 2013 at the end of August, the August gallery will be posted at the end of September, and on and on.
Good luck with your September assignment, and congratulations to all of the fine contributors for July.
