This shot shows the underside of the massive conveyor belt from Wallaroo’s grain silo complex to the jetty where the grain is loaded onto ships (see yesterday’s pic). The support structure is used by hundreds of cormorants for roosting.
And a wider shot:
Both shot in the evening.
Birds flying home over the Coorong.
The colours are mostly artificial. I warmed and tinted the scene in Lightroom as well as boosting the blue of the sky. I like the contrast of the bright highlights and dark undersides of the clouds but the birds needed to be bigger to make the photo a success, I think. Maybe should have selectively un-warmed the foreground grass: looks a little muddy in tone. Ah well, lessons learned.
