I do like this wide photograph. It came out so much better than it could have. As with many images in the morning lately there was fog, and lots of it.
This was one of the first photographs taken that day and I was still working on getting the settings right. Also a bit later I used a monopod to help shoot as slow a speed as possible. This was hand held, a heavy 150-600 lens.
I find monopods, and tripods, very restricting. Clumsy may be a better description. A close up, fast, in flight shot is downright dangerous with that thing attached to the bottom. To get the shot you pick up the camera and start swinging it around. Somebody / something is ‘going down’.
Long slow shots, and/or fog, require one so I just don’t even try for the in flights (much).
