Here are some pictures that every photographer should have in his or her portfolio. I think 😉
One of those images is a very cliché image of birds sitting on an electricity wire. Where I’m currently residing, obviously birds aren’t all that keen on sitting on an electricity wire in big numbers, and I’ve been looking out for an image like that for I don’t know how long. Over time I’ve seen some sitting here and there, but I never wanted to take the shot, because, cliché as it already is, I did want to have a version that stands out from the pack at least that much.
During our holidays in Oregon I finally came across a scene that could fit the description. And when I moved in closer, camera at the ready, and the birds got restless and started flying away, I think I finally got my shot.
Below a few of (a good number) of the images I shot and the last one would be my favorite…
