SiJ_Day_3_English Channel_Caen - DP3M

Miserable weather day today - up at 06:15 - boat at 08:15 …. 6 hour crossing - raining all the way across to France, plus wind ….. then a 7 hour drive "home" in heavy rain.. arrived at 2200hrs ….. met by 6 wild Boar, (mother, father and 4 sprogs), just outside the house … could not get a shot as the Sigma is really slow to focus……. this shot is the best I can do for Day 3…… weather looks better than it was … rain stopped for 30 mins as we came into Caen
You sure made the best of it - this is a nicely layered shot with quite a lot going on (interestingly, some of the things are better visible in the thumbnail ...).
Wow, Bill - that was some day you had! And then the kind hearted wild boar family at home to greet you and your wife! I'll tell you, this photograph is beautiful. I think this is could be my all time favorite of yours that I've ever seen. There is a real 3D feeling... I, too, can smell the sale and hear the birds screaming! It was worth that trip to get this picture, Bill. Love it.
I think your best for the day is pretty darned good. I love this shot, I'd hang it on my wall quite happily.
I think it is a cool image, you made the best of a tough day for photos. That is something all of us will probably have happen at least once during January.
Beautiful image - painterly in the best sense. It looks like you've arranged the birds for the shot.
To misquote the great Eric Cantona, when the seagulls follow the car ferry, they are hoping to get into the PL photo gallery....
